MA'SHA'ALLAH, that was truly a moving recitation . . thank you my dear sister, for posting this.

You know, given the warnings in this surah and others as well as some articles I've read the last few days, I feel more fearful, yet also hopeful . . that my eyes are being opened, so that I can correct myself on a daily basis, behavior and deed-wise. So Jazak'Allahu Khairan.

I wanted to ask you a favor, (don't mean to be ordering my lil sis around, hehe) but I was told by another sister that I've known for a long time (this one in real life, not online) that we are not supposed to say "Jumu'ah Mubarak" (after I said this on MSN to her) according to an older person in her family that is quite religious, saying that it comes every week. Then I thought, E'id comes every year and we still wish each other in the same way, so . . . yet, that is not always true, as we may not make it to the next E'id of course or Ramadhan for that matter. The same can be said for Friday, as we may not live until the next one.

So just wanted to ask what you know or can find out about this and if it is valid or not.

May Reward you and thanks in advance.

Waiyakum. I asked a Sheikh/Alim about saying Jummah Mubarak and I'm paraphrasing as I asked in person not online, he pretty much said we should not say it. I don't think its because it comes every week like Eid ( no offense to your friend) but rather because there is no daleel that we know of that says that the prophet peace be upon him said Jummah Mubarak and we should strive to do as he did and not add things to the religion. Allahu Alim, any mistakes are mine. Also Jazakallah, I never really thought about the actual saying and where it came from.

Thanks Sis! My friend ended up being right then (so no offense - it was I who had the thought of Eid, though I didn't mention this to my friend) - from time to time, I would wish those I knew Jumu'ah Mubarak, so now I know it's not something that was practiced in the Prophet's time and thus, I will refrain from it.
It seems Eid would be a different case as we see such wishes/greetings are all around on those two days of the year. Anyways, again, thanks for the clarification!
