Islamic New Year

Dear Muslim,
I am sure you love Allaah. If you do, then Allaah has given you a test:

قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ

“Say (O Muhammadﷺ to mankind): “If you really love Allaah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Tawheed, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allaah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah Aal-Imraan: 31)

The Prophet ﷺ never mentioned “Islamic New Year”, never celebrated it, never sent out “wishes”, never made any special dua or prayer or fasting for “new year”. Please beware.
If you love Allaah, follow the way (Sunnah) of His prophet ﷺ.

Abu Umar; Abdulazeez.
