Question: [This is] another letter [we have] received from someone asking what is the ruling regarding a Muslim saying to a[nother] Muslim “Jumu’ah Mubaarakah” every Friday via mobile phone messages, or on [online] discussion forums?

Response: There is no basis for this, and it is an innovation.

So it is not permissible to greet [one another in this manner] on Friday [since] nothing [authentic] has been reported about this, and nor is this from the actions of the Salaf, [rather] it is innovated.

And [you find] the innovators taking advantage of the mobile phones and the internet for what has been mentioned and using them to promote innovations in this way.
