Happy New Year Celebration on Jan 1 answered by Allama Hafiz Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer

Praise be to Allaah.

Allama Hafiz Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer stated:


It is sunnah to do dua on seeing new moon .So there is no harm in doing dua of peace and safety when moon of new year or month appears on the sky.But we should keep in mind that our new year starts with Moharram one of the four holy months.We should seek peace and safety of Allah when Moharram starts .Mix gatherings,drinking and dance parties on new year night have nothing to do with Islamic culture
 comments by Allama Hafiz Ibtisam Zaheer Elahi:

  • Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer Dua of safety and peace is to be done when seeing new moon .This particular dua is not related to solar calender.General duas of afiah and peace should be done every day every evening and every night these general duas have no specific relation with new year
  • Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer yes noor ul ain because our new year started with Moharram.Our eid is fitar and azha not christmas.We should promote our fuctions and celebrations
