The Islamic Nations Also Celebrate Their New Year Called Muharram - Pray for Peace
10-3-16, This year, on this day, Jews and Muslims will celebrate the new year at the same date. Muslims mark the beginning of a new year, in a free day and celebration, and the Jews mark the holiday through customs, which symbolize the hope of a blessed new year. They celebrated several times by a festive meal with the family and friends, and before they eat the delicious foods of the meal, they start eating foods that symbolize the aspirations and good blessings. Some symbolic foods are: apple dipped in honey, so that this year will be sweet, seeds of a pomegranate, so that the rights which are recorded in their favor in God's "eyes" will be as many as the seeds of the pomegranate. They blessing on the foods that symbolize blessing and salvation such as to be always at the head and not the tail, that their enemies stay away from them, they will not have a bad verdict, but a good sentence, and more.
Judaism believe that this is the day which begins a sentence in the sky that will determine the future of the year for per person, and therefore they tend to pray for mercy and forgiveness they also tend to donate to the needy, moral conduct, love, compassion and concern for each other. It symbolizes what that should prevail- unity, peace and brotherhood between religions.
We wish happy holiday and a happy new year, blissful peace.
Different Islamic denominations - Shi'a and Sunni - and do different things to mark Muharram the Islamic New Year. Some Muslims fast on or around the 10th day of Muharram, also known as the Day of Ashura, to mourn the death of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson Husayn ibn Ali. Some mosques have free meals (nazar) around the ninth to 11th days of Muharram. May the Muslim people seek peace and harmony with all nations and peoples.
