New Year Celebration

Happy New Year

In Islam, there are only two holidays, namely the day of 'Eid ul-Fitr and' Eid al-Adha. The rest, nothing so as a Muslim, there is no interest whatsoever to celebrate the new year.

The most important thing for a Muslim is to pay attention to the time that never cease to be filled with deeds, including in the new year 2012. The whole man is in loss except for the faithful and do good works, encourage one another in righteousness and admonish one another in patience.

Quran Sura Al-Asr
Quran Sura Al-Asr
Quran Sura Al-Asr

By time, Indeed, mankind is in loss, Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience. (Quran Sura Al-Ashr)

In this sura, Allah explains that all human beings really are at a losses. These losses referred to in this ayat may be absolute, meaning a loss in the world and the Hereafter, not getting pleasure and is entitled to put in hell. It may be that he only suffered losses from one side only. Therefore, in this letter God generalize that the losses would be experienced by human beings except those who have four criterias in the sura.

So there is no relationship at all between the new year with the obligation to worship. Every Muslim should worship any time and anywhere because God has created man to worship and be a caliph in the earth

Sura Adz-Dzariat 56

And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.(Quran Sura Adz-Dzariat : 56)
