Question: The questioner says, regarding the saying “Ramadhaan Kareem”, is al-Kareem not Allaah?

Response: This has no basis.

Their saying “Ramadhaan Kareem” does not have any basis.

As for [saying] “Ramadhaan Shareef”, “Ramadhaan Mubaarak”, “Ramadhaan ‘Adheem” – these descriptions are mentioned in ahaadeeth; “‘Adheem”, “Mubaarak”, “Shareef” – [there is] no harm [in saying these].

As for “Kareem”, [then] I do not know [anything] of its origin.
