Greeting others with the words ‘Jumuah Mubaarak’ and ‘Eid Mubaarak’

Q. Is it permissible to greet another Muslim by saying ‘Jumuah Mubaarak’ or ‘Eid Mubaarak’ on the day of Jumuah and on the day of Eid?

A. It is permissible to greet one another on the day of Eid with the words “Eid Mubarak” and on the day of Jummuah with the words “Jumuah Mubarak”.

However, it should not be regarded to be compulsory or lead to a customary practice leading to Bid’ah (innovation).
