How Should Muslims Celebrate New Year

My brothers and sisters were a few moments away from new years eve so one might ask what does New years eve mean to Muslims? in truth, it actually means nothing. It has no weight whatsoever in Islam in any way, shape or form. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) He gave us our days of celebration, He gave us (Eid Al Fitr) which is the day after the blessed month of Ramadan, He gave us (Eid Al Adha) which is just after Hajj and we also have every single Friday the day of the (Jummah), the day of the (Khutbah) and this is also a (Eid) celebration for the believer.

My brothers and sisters, how do we deal with this Year's Eve, in short stay away from it. There is no celebration whatsoever, do not go to places where this night is being celebrated stay away from gatherings that are displeasing to Allah. Where there is mixing, alcohol anything of this nature stay away from this. My brothers and sisters if this night was to have any weight whatsoever then what I would say to you and I is that New Year's should be a night for you and I to reflect to really look at your life and say a whole year has passed me by what have I done? what have I accomplished? where am I going with my life?

We are one year closer to our death whatever I accomplished? I'm one year closer to my grave what have I accomplished? one whole year has passed how have I contributed in a positive way towards my Ummah? If it was to have any weight then this is the weight that I would give it, it should be a night to reflect, it should be a night to repent, it should be a night to ask Allah to forgive us on the wrongs that we've done.

My brothers and sisters, this concept of New Year's resolution, there is weight in this, there is actually links in this towards Islam. Umar (ra) used to say in His very famous statement, He used to say you know judge yourself before you were judge, analyze this off before you were analyzed, check yourself before you were checked before at Allah so my brothers and sisters one should be looking at himself and saying, a whole year has passed me by what have I done? where am I going? what new things am going to do in next year? how will I make sure that next year will not be like previous year.

If this year meant for me that I had no beard, I had no hijab, there was no Quran in my life, there was no Sallah in my life or anything of this nature then next year i should be my promise to Allah that i will establish these things. My brothers and sisters you know if you are going to do anything on new year's eve, i strongly suggest that you don't but if you feel like you need to do something then make it a night of worship, make it a night where you make promises with Allah and make it a night where you make Dua for this Umma.

May Allah guide us (Ameen)

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
