Time flies. Night comes at the end of the day, day again at the end of the night. At the end of the year, the new year begins again. In this way life ends once. The use of life is the identity of the greatest intelligence. The whole world is waiting for another new year after one more year in the continuity of time. Many are preparing to say goodbye to the previous year and welcome the new year. But the spirit of faith inspires believers to evaluate the arrival of the new year in a different light.
Learning from the signs of Allah: The sun and the moon are wonderful creations of Allah and one of the signs. World management is deeply involved with the motion and rays of the sun and moon. The motion of the sun and the moon and the orbit of their own orbits are according to a special calculation and measurement. This determines the difference between night and day, the change of seasons and the month-year. The solar year is calculated from the motion of the sun and the lunar year is calculated from the motion of the moon. The lunar month calculation can be easily mastered by looking at the moon in the sky. For this reason, the Islamic Shari’ah has taken into account the lunar month. As such, fasting, Hajj, etc. are performed. Learning from these signs, turning to Allah is the appeal of faith. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And He it is Who made the sun radiant and the moon radiant, and ordained its destination (orbit) so that you may know the reckoning of years and the reckoning of time. God did not create these in vain. He explains in detail the signs for a people who know. ‘(Surah Yunus, verse 5)
Wishing goodness to Allah: The good and bad of life has nothing to do with the arrival of the new year. It is shirk to believe that which is an unforgivable crime. But happiness, peace, success and well-being can be wished to Allah Almighty for the new year in this world and in the hereafter. Allah is the giver of happiness, peace, success and welfare to the servant – no one else. The Qur’an says, ‘Shall I take others as gods instead of Him (Allah)? If the merciful want to cause me trouble, their intercession will be of no use to me, and they will not be able to save me. If I did, I would be in clear error. ‘(Surah Yasin, verses 23-24)
Remembrance of Death and Preparation for the Hereafter: Allah sends man to earth for a specific period of time. There is no change in this period. For which, as long as the time is fixed, as soon as it is over, the call of death comes at the end of life. Allah says, ‘But when the appointed time comes, Allah will not give him respite at all. GOD is fully Cognizant of everything you do. ‘(Surat al-Munafiqun, 11)
