Is it Sunnah to greet with ‘Eid Mubarak’?


1) I want to ask whether greeting some one “EID Mubarak” sunnat?

2) Is embracing on Eid is sunnat?


In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

Greeting someone with “Eid Mubarak” or embracing each other right after Eid Salaah is not established in sunnah. However, there is a leeway to do so outside the Eidgah as long as it would not  be regard it as sunnah. If someone does approach then instead of refusing, one should embrace him and thereafter explain the mas’alah in a polite manner.

Nonetheless, one should not regard it as sunnah or even look down at those who abstain from it since that will be bid’ah(Innovation).

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best 

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
