Is saying Jumuah Mubārak Bid’ah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is saying Jummah Mubarak Bidaah?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Jumua’h is a Mubārak (blessed) day.  This is understood from the many Ahādīth expounding on the virtues of a Friday. 

A believer is also fortunate and blessed to be alive on a Friday to witness the Barakah and blessings of a Friday.  When one congratulates others with Jumua’h Mubārak, this is an expression of a reality.  However, there is no mention in the Hadīth about Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam and Sahābah congratulating each other with Jumua’h Mubārak.  Hence, one may congratulate others with Jumua’h Mubārak on condition it is not regarded to be a Sunnah or necessary.
