What is wrong is celebrating New Year, I can understand not celebrating 25th December as Christmas but what's wrong with New Year?




(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)


Answer:

Why shouldn’t we celebrate New Year?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Each people have their own culture and days of celebrations. And Allah and His Messenger (saws) have ordained the two Eids and every Friday as a day of celebration for the believers.    That is the culture of Islam; and every believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, must adopt the culture of Islam and celebrate the days which Allah and His Messenger (saws) have ordained for them to celebrate.

Besides, the Islamic New Year is the first of Moharram; and that too, is not dedicated as a day of celebration! Thus, it does not behove a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to celebrate a holiday of the pagan or western culture; especially when we have our own rich and proud culture of Islam. To celebrate a day of another culture, is in fact to accept their culture… and although it may not sound like a big deal, it may just be a start for the person to start accepting foreign cultures and in time it might have an effect on his own culture.

It is indeed true that the Gregorian New Year has no religious significance; and seems harmless … but for a believer, it should not constitute a day of celebration ….as it has nothing to do with Islam and its teachings and guidance.

Besides, one should realize that the pagans celebrate the advent of the New Year with nothing more than parties of mixed-sexes, singing, dancing, free flowing of alcohol, etc., which are all prohibited in Islam anyways!    It just does not behove a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to sacrifice his high Islamic morals and culture, in exchange for a pagan celebration of the mixing of sexes, dancing, music, singing, alcohol, etc.    


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

There is no doubt that music is the soul of any occasion. In fact, it is the primary thing that adds color to an event. Without good music, you could imagine your event or party as a hectic, boring, and dull thing, especially for the guests. An event that lacks good music can never be enjoyed.

I think that it is a wonderful way to celebrate New Year. If you are in a country where people celebrate New Year, you should join in the celebration. You can also download worship ppt templates to make your new year celebration more special. You can wear traditional clothes and take photos with your friends or family members. It is a good way to get closer to your family members and friends.
