Offering congratulations for the beginning of Ramadaan

Offering congratulations for the beginning of Ramadaan

What is the ruling on offering congratulations for the beginning of Ramadaan by saying “Kull ‘aam wa antum bikhayr (roughly equivalent to “Many happy returns” – traditional Arabic phrase of congratulations on occasions such as Eid etc.)?.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no specific wording that the Muslim has to use to offer congratulations for the beginning of Ramadaan, so it is permissible to offer congratulations in any wordings that are customary among the people, such as saying “Kull ‘aam wa antum bi khayr” and other words that do not contain any meanings that are forbidden in Islam.

And Allaah knows best.
