Question: What is the ruling regarding the 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. 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 way 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.
