Question

What is the ruling on congratulating someone with the work Mabruk, as it is said that it is taken from the word Baruk meaning the kneeling of a camel, and it does not have the meaning of Mubarak (may you be blessed) from the word Barakah (blessing)?


Answer

The word is fine since most people only use it to mean Barakah (blessing), then according to the custom it means the same thing as Mubarak. I also do not see that it is correct according to the rules of conjugation, to say that it is derived from Barak so i do not see anything to prevent the usage of Mabruk to mean Mubarak.


Shaikh Ibn Uthaimin (Rahimahullah)
