Greeting at the Advent of Ramadhan


Greeting at the Advent of Ramadaan

Shaykh Saalih ibn Fowzaan al-Fowzaan

Reference: Fataawa Ramadaan

Category: Fasting

There is no problem in greeting one another at the beginning of the month Ramadaan because the Prophet (peace and blessings be with him) would give glad tidings to his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them all) at the advent of the month of Ramadaan. He would urge them to strive in this month with performing righteous deeds. And truly Allaah has said:

{Say: “In the Bounty of Allaah and in His Mercy (i.e. Islaam and the Quraan); -therein let them rejoice.” That is better than what (the wealth) they amass.} [Younus: 58]

Therefore greeting one another in this month and to be joyful at the advent of this month both demonstrate the keenness for (doing) good.

The Salaf would give glad tidings to one another at the advent of the month of Ramadaan following the example of the Prophet (peace and blessings be with him) just as was reported in the lengthy Hadeeth of Salmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) regarding this, that the Prophet rightfully stated:

“Oh People! Indeed you have been approached by a magnificent blessed month…”
