Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh my brothers & sisters.

Still didn’t tell my parents about my conversion to Islam but im planning on going to madresah and just before then, tell them in shaa Allah amin.
The Disguised Innovation
I’m sure u wondering what the disguised innovation is and honestly in my opinion there are alot of disguised innovations but today I’m going to specifically to about the one that is most trending which is:
The custom of wishing “Jumuah Mubarak” to one another.
Yes I said it and you have probably heard this before or maybe sat through a whole lecture on it where the Quran and Sunnah were used as supporting materials to convince you on the seriousness of this trend.
I’m going to look at it at a more logical perspective in shaa Allah.
Just to basically summarise why Jumua mubarak greetings are bidah:
It was never the way our Nabi sallalahu alaihi wasalam or the sahabas so who are we to start our own ritual in the deen of Allah when we know that our Nabi sallalahu alaiahi wasalam never said anything except what Allah willed he says.That is why it is referred to as bidah. For innovations in the deen of Allah there are penalties and our Nabi sallalahu alaihi wasalam said about bidah :”Whoever invents something in this deen of ours will have it rejected” . And yes Friday is a blessed day in Islam, Allah made it blessed and we must believe and understand that, the only thing we must avoid is the innovation of a greeting to make it part of Islam.
To know more about why this greeting is a bi’dah you can do research on it and ensure you use an authentic websites. In shaa Allah I will try getting an authentic explanation and post it.
This brings me back to my point. The logical one.
I was talking to one sister on whatsapp a while back and she sent me this greeting card that read “Jumuah Mubarak” I asked her why she says that because its bi’dah purposefully to hear her answer and she told me :”sister look my intention is not bidah but it is wishing good for my fellow brother”
And then i thought to myself as I am a new Muslim and if someone comes to me and greets me in this manner won’t I grab it and say it to someone else? Definitely esspecially if you are a revert you take and do everything a Born Muslim does. So then I tell my other revert friends and they also implement it and so on.
One of those friends that i greet with this greeting will be a Mother and will say this greeting to her children and because mom is always right this greeting also has to be. The children will then tell their children and so on.
The Mother will than be a Grandmother with grandchildren and this custom will spread over to them, and because grandma is the wisest person i know this greeting has to be valid and accepted and the grandchild tells his peers and his peers their peers and he tells his children and so on.
This will become such a huge trend that no one will even question. E.g. saying “Bismillah” is something every Muslim knows and says but not every Muslim knows where it originated from the hadith or ayat etc. Only a few do know and those who don’t know dont even bother to ask because most of the people they know and trust say it. This will be the same case with this greeting except that bismillah is valid and wishing jumua mubarak is not. And the more this chain of bidah stretches the harder it is to rectify and the fact that it is disguised also makes it a debacle to fix.
But nothing that du’a and amal cannot fix.
Think of the future of our deen and each and everyone of us’s responsibilty to secure it.
Prophet muhammad sallahu alaihi wasalamtaught us three ways to deal with something that you see is wrong, the first being:
- Admitting in your head that it is wrong
- Saying something against it or to rectify it by speech.
- And the best one, is to physically stop it
#StopDisguisedBidah and stop being selfish and think of the future of our Ummah. #Truthbespoken
