Offering congratulations for the beginning of Ramadaan

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
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.)?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
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.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
