May Allah ﷻ give years with goodness. Shukr to Allah ﷻ, tonight is the Hijri New Year. May it be a blessed year insha’Allah. May it be the year of Islam and bring victory to Islam. May it be the year when hardships disappear insha’Allah. We hope that Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam appears insha’Allah. Allah ﷻ knows; but our belief, belief of Ahlu s-Sunnah wa l-Jama’ah is on the appearance of Mahdi ‘alayhi s-salam. As our Holy Prophet ﷺ gave us the news of him, it is the duty of all of us to believe in this.
Another blessed year is gone and the new year is coming. One year is gone from our lives. Shukr to Allah ﷻ. Insha’Allah it is not gone for nothing. Because on the normal New Year of the other calendar they make great fuss, they make lots of preparation, and many people run here and there to commit all kinds of sins. They fill up the streets, they scream and shout, drink and do bad things.
Shukr to Allah ﷻ, this New Year is not like that. It starts with dignity and beauty. The other one starts at midnight and this one in at Maghrib. Shukr to Allah ﷻ, at Maghrib tonight we are entering the new year. The year that has the orders of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla, Ramadan, ‘Ids, Qurban, Ashura, fasting and Hajj. All of them are in this year. It is a blessed year.
Of course, the other one can be used too. The other one has a different duty. But this one is for worship. The things to be done according to religion are in this one, not after this. We cannot mix them up. That one is different and this one is different. This one is for Akhirah and has Barakah.
This year is coming to end. Today is its last day. Until Maghrib, the year 1,444 is coming to an end. With the Maghrib Adhan, we will enter the new year. Shukr to Allah ﷻ, everything of this calendar is different than the other one. The other one is the year of Dunya. But this one is the year of Akhirah.
Therefore, we ask for the mercy of Allah ﷻ today and make Dua so that the worship we’ve performed is accepted and the sins are forgiven for our Akhirah. May He ﷻ forgive our sins and mistakes we’ve made. May He ﷻ change our badness to goodness. May He ﷻ change our sins to Thawab. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is giving this promise in the Qur’an: “يُبَدِّلُ اللَّهُ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ حَسَنَاتٍ”, “Yubaddilu Llāhu sayyiātihim ḥasanāt”, “For them Allah will replace their evil deeds with good.” (Qur’an 25:70). The sins of the people who repent become Thawab. We repent too insha’Allah.
May Allah ﷻ forgive us. May the new year be good and be the year of Islam insha’Allah. We hope there is salvation for humanity and Muslims insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
