Selamat Tahun Baru Hijrah 1429

January 10, 2008

A new year message (in Malay) I received a few minutes after the new year from my sister, SA; the best one I received: Selamat Tahun Baru Hijrah. Semoga kita dapat berhijrah ke arah yang diredhai Allah swt. Muhasabah diri serta memperbaiki sebarang kekurangan supaya mendapat rahmat dariNya jua. Amin.

I still read the end and beginning of the year prayers. There is nothing wrong with a doa or prayer I believe. After all, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said a prayer is the Muslim’ weapon. I strongly believe that if we are sincere with our doa, Allah swt will listen to our prayers. I will talk about doa in my upcoming post.

I have searched everywhere and true, I couldn’t find any sunnah or teaching of the Prophet on the Doa Awal and Akhir tahun. One reply which I got from an ustaz on my own enquiries on these two prayers was that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) didn’t celebrate the new year Hijrah as it was only started after his death. But the ustaz said that there’s nothing wrong to pray for one owns well-being.

Read my very recent post on these prayers, which received over three hundred hits yesterday; Doa awal and akhir tahun, plus a comment from one Abdullah.

Brunei Darussalam celebrated the new year of Hijrah just a couple of hours ago where His Majesty The Sultan And Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam along with Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Prince Abdul Malik joined His Majesty’s subjects at the awesome Jame’ Asr Hassanil Bolkiah in Kiarong to welcome the new year.

Hijrah awards were presented by His Majesty. The Tokoh Ugama award went to Pehin Ustaz Haji Hamid bin Bakal who received among them a cash of Br$20,000. The other two recipients for another award were Awang Haji Metussin bin Haji Timbang and Awang Haji Zainal @ Abu Bakar bin Idris who each received a Br$10,000 cash and others.

I hope that the spirit of the new year will bring in much betterness in life, in this world and the lifeafter, amin.  Migrating because of Allah is one of the keys to richness as Allah said in the Quran:

“Artinya : Barangsiapa berhijrah di jalan Allah, niscaya mereka mendapati di muka bumi ini tempat hijrah yang luas dan rizki yang banyak” [An-Nisaa : 100]
