Let's all take a moment to assess where we are spiritually this New Year's Eve, and no matter where we are, we should strive to improve further and become closer to Allah. Of course, we can still keep some resolutions like working out or being outdoors more, but we must stay focused on how to be stronger in our faith! Start off your year in the company of Allah by heading to your local Mosque or Salaat Center for congregational Tahujjad and Fajr Prayer! Hudhur (aba) told us in his address to Jalsa Salana Qadian how we should spend the final hours of the year:
“The year is coming to an end. In some countries only 24 hours remain of this year, and in other countries two days and two nights. Therefore, spend these last few days sending Durood [Salutation on the Holy Prophet (sa)] and begin the new year with Salutations and Peace so that we can attain the blessings attached to the person of the Holy Prophet (sa) as soon as possible. May Allah enable us to do so, and protect us from our opponents and cause their ill and evil deeds to recoil on them. Ameen.”
Happy New Year, and may Allah bless us all to reach higher in our spirituality in this new year! Ameen.
