Alihamdulillah, today is the first day of Islamic Year 1442AH. Happy New Year to all of us. This is perhaps a better day to reflect, plan and make resolutions. Indeed which of the favours of your Lord will you deny? Remember all that Allah has done for you, including your being alive during this pandemic. And many more unknown to you. Trust Him to do more. In Allah you should put your trust. Hasbunallahu wanimol wakeel…

This is a time for us all to reflect to become better Muslims; better parents, children, staff, neighbour, brother, sister, manager, leader, etc. Let’s lead exemplary life for others to emulate.

Yee Muslims are the best Community evolved for mankind. Let’s enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil. Let’s migrate from evil acts to Godly behaviours. Let the personality of the Holy Prophet Muhammed (SAW) guide our thoughts and actions, and earn for ourselves the title ‘Al-Amin. Let the world be a safer place from our thoughts and actions. Let the bond of brotherhood be strenghtened and not faked. Let’s make the world a better place for you and me. Let’s create a new social order built on the true tenets of Islam where all, including non-Muslims, appreciate the guidance and love of Allah, and experience the beauties of Islam which bring endless bliss. Allah has perfected his Deen and guides man through it to a world of peace, but man deviates and thus earns what he causes for himself.

May Allah continue to protect us against all calamaties and bless us with all that will make our world a better place to live in. Happy celebration. Barakallahu fiikum
