New Year Message For 2020
خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ
بِالْحَقِّ ۖ يُكَوِّرُ اللَّيْلَ عَلَى النَّهَارِ وَيُكَوِّرُ النَّهَارَ عَلَى اللَّيْلِ ۖ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ ۖ كُلٌّ يَجْرِي لِأَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ۗ أَلَا هُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفَّارُ
He has created the heavens and the Earth with truth. He makes night to succeed day, and He makes day to succeed night, and He subjects the Sun and the moon to give service, each running on for an appointed term. Is he not the Mighty, the Forgiver?
Surah Zumar 39:5
The Quran acknowledges the lunar and solar calendar. The lunar calendar defines our religious duties and the solar marks the beginning and end of our worldly life on this earth.
Each has a place, each is important, as through both we seek our Lords approval. At the start of each year we become aware that time is short.. Time is running out for man - everything is moving in it’s appointed orbit on a path that’s been ordained.
As we mark the beginning of a new solar year, indeed a new decade - we ask ourselves.. what path am I on? Where am I going? What is the goal of my life? What path has my Lord ordained for Me?
The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection. A time to look deep within our soul and search for the answers to these deep questions that will define the course of our life and our afterlife.
The verse reminds us that there is always time to turn back to Allah and if we do we will always find Him forgiving and merciful inshAllah.
We pray that this new decade is one that is filled with Allah's blessings for us and our families.
But let’s not forget the greatest blessing of all.. Allah's Guidance upon His ordained Path.
May He guide us to submit to Him and to the path of success for this life and the Next Ameen!
“Walking through the door and experiencing the atmosphere always puts a smile on my face!"
