COLOMBO: It is with a sense of immense pleasure and pride I send the greetings and good wishes to all my Muslim brethren in Sri Lanka and abroad on the dawn of the Islamic New Year.
Islamic New Year: The first day of the Hijri year is celebrated as a special and important occasion by the Muslim Ummah all over the world. The month of Muharram marks the beginning of a new Islamic year. The Prophet’s (PBUH) “Hijrah” was a turning point in Islamic history. This is why the Islamic calendar came into force based on this event.
May Allah help us march forward and forge ahead in the coming years for the betterment of the world and Sri Lanka in particular.
