A new Hijri year is upon us – 1443! Let us take time to reflect on the past year and renew our intention for the new year.
Take advantage of the first ten days of Muharram (one of the four sacred months) and use this opportunity to set a goal for the year and draw closer to what is pleasing to Allah (swt).
Reminder: Fast on the 9th and 10th of Muharram.
Muslim reported from Abu Hurayra, that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “The best of fasts after the month of Ramadan are in the Month of Allah, which you call Muharram. And the best of prayer after the obligatory prayer is the night prayer.” [Muslim, 1163]
What else can you do in the month of Muharram? Increase your good deeds, seek forgiveness, give generously, and make lots of dua’a.
Oh Allah, bring this Hijri year upon us with security, iman, safety, Islam, protection, and your pleasure, Ameen!
