Individually, we Malaysians will recite "The end of the year" do'a (prayer) after performing 'Asr prayer before the sunset... and after Maghrib prayer, again individually we will recite "The new year" do'a. Just that...

But nationally, the government would conduct parades in towns nationwide... where government servants and school children would carry banners and singing "Talaa al badr" song (in remembrance of Prophet Muhammad being welcomed by the Medinites)

Alhamdulillah, 1428 years has passed on for Islam, and still there are many faithful followers...:)

Let's just not celebrate, but also introspect from what've we done in the years before, evaluate for the years ahead!

InshaAllah He planned the best for us.

Yaa Allah, we beg to forgive our sins, bless us with Your light, Warmth us with Your flame, of emaan...

Thanks....

In Malaysia, Chinese are very important minority. Thus, 2 days public holiday are given to Chinese New Year annually, and we Muslims are ok with that...

In fact, there are 200,000 Chinese Muslims in Malaysia who also celebrate Chinese New Year....

I love Chinese New Year too, it's a very colourful (golden and red) cultural event... lots of "Loh Kum" oranges, lots of open houses, and "ang pows" (money put in a red envelope). I wonder how much my boss will give me this year...:D

I saw few parades in news and they are nice. Last year, when began the chinese year , they had (at parade) a huge yellow snake too. Here are only fireworks and crackers. No parades at all.

I see...

But what was your muftiis' reason for allowing the parades to take place and evidence? and what exactly do they celebrate at the parades, the actual birthday of rasoolullah (saw) like the christians and christmas... or his life and prophethood? Its just that im terribally unfamiliar with this!:eek:

Oh right. But can there be such thing as a good bid'ah? If so, wouldnt other forms of bid'ah be acceptable in islam so long as they're 'good'? I mean people who innovate in islam have good intentions majority of the time, and i hardly doubt their sincerity either... however can that justify or make it (bid'ah) right?

The "Kaum Tua" (traditionalist clerics) and "Kaum Muda" (salafi clerics) have been fighting about this for a century... but of course "Kaum Tua" wins because 90% of Malaysian Muslims support them. Out of fourteen states, only one state (State of Perlis - the tiniest and least populated state in Malaysia) has a "Kaum Muda" Mufti.

Dear bro's and sisters I wish you all a very Happy Muharram.

May Allah shower his blessing on us and lead us all through the path of victory in Dheen and Dhunia.

May Allah shower his protection on us and all show the Light on the Lives of all Muslims and Non-Muslims, So that he would Increase the Emaan of Muslims and show the right path to the Non-Muslims.

Sunnis fast for two days of Ashura (9 & 10 of Muharram). It's Muslim version of Passover/Pesach.

Unfortunately, Saidina Husain was martyred on this day, thus for the Shiites and some of Shafiite Sunnis in Malay world (especially among Acehnese and Minagkabaus) it's a mourning day.

How many sahabahs were martyred on certain days in the year even ramadhan... why not take them certain days as days of mourning? It doesnt seem to make sence to single out only Hussain (r.a) from all the other sahabahs and family of rasoolullah (s.a.w).

I agree with you, i will never understand how we are choosing who deserve or not our mourning and remembrance.

lol ok sry im gnna try explain.

If i was to prepare for death, then i'd do it knowing theres something to be prepared for. I will prepare to enter jannah, but to get there wont be easy, also preparing means to purify oneself and act only good, so how can someone trying to be pure not feel content :)


hope that helps a bit more
even tho it prob didnt lol

I thought you all day just sit and thinking at death. Well, i agree with what you say. Doing good makes you pure and always its supposed to act good. Its a bit more hard to do good to someone else, especially when you deal with their ingratitude :-[
