It came to a shock on me that saying have a blessed jummah (Friday) is an innovation in Islam because it has never been said by the sahabis nor by our beloved prophet (saw).

  • Because of the difference of opinions in the definition of "bidah", I'd like to clear out that according to the majority of the scholars, this wouldn't be a bidah even though there were no proofs about this hadith.

Saying "Eid Muarak" or any good greetings for Eid is not a bidaah since the sahabah used to do it:

Jubayr ibn Nufayr said: “At the time of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, when people met one another on the day of `Eid, they would say: Taqabbal Allahu minnaa wa minka (May allah accept yours and our good deeds).”

[Reported by Al-Albani with an authentic chain of transmission]

As for Jummah. There is no harm in doing so. Unless you consider this as a sunnah (keep doing it every Friday) or you think saying "Jummah mubarakh" will increase your good deeds. Then this is considered a bidahh.
