The new Islamic year 1434


Salam Maal Hijrah …

Yesterday was the last day of the Islamic Calendar 1433, 29th Dzulhijjah.

There is a doa that is read three times to represent the end of the year, Doa Akhir Tahun.  It is read after solat Asar before solat Maghrib.  Insya’allah, one will receive Allah SWT protection from the defamation and snares of the Satan and receive forgiveness of sins for the year that has passed.

Today is the first day of Muharram 1434 a.k.a. Maal Hijrah.

Another doa is read i.e. Doa Awal Tahun (also read three times), after Maghrib on the last day of Zulhijjah or on the night of 1st Muharram.  It is said that two angels will protect throughout the year.

Doa Awal Muharram is read three times a day for the first 10 days of Muharram.  It is said one will be protected from Satan throughout the year.

I’ve fasted yesterday and will be fasting today and tomorrow (first Friday of Muharram).
