The first question Assalamualaikum
from Lahore, Pakistan,
Islamic Nia saal Mubarak but Dina say hey, is it permissible in Islam to wish Islamic Happy New Year?

Happy Islamic Hijri year or can we respond to someone if he wishes? Islamic Happy New Year? Check Mombasa live No, I mean, he replied that if someone wishes you happy Islamic New Year, you can respond back.
But you should not initiate this greeting. If someone wishes you happy Islamic New Year, you can reach them back by saying May Allah bless you and give you good in this new year. There's no problem.
But you should not initiate this greeting. Because according to him, we find that the Salafis Allah him the sahabas the turbine, the turbine turbine, we never find in any of the Hadith or any storica record that the Salafis Allah He they ever wished anyone happy Islamic New Year.
So this is not the Sunnah of the Prophet. It is not amongst the Islamic greetings.

May Allah bless you or bring you good in this year. But to initiate or say to yourself, it is not amongst the Sunnah. And if someone wishes you initiate it is not amongst the Sunnah. Neither is it forbidden. So this is the ruling as far as wishing Islamic happiness is concerned.
