Congratulations with the statement Mabruk

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.
