Please do not let articles like these be representative of what the Muslim community is like. Why question your faith my brother? brother, it is true muslims have the two eids that unite us all. but at the same time, in real terms today, chinese muslims have the chinese new year, persians have nowrouz, most of us have independence or national days for our respective countries, kings’ birthdays, historical days, harvest festival days, and so forth. the issue with taking issue with new year’s day on principle – not its means of celebration – is that you must also invalidate all of these other holidays or festivities. i’m pretty sure that in the old days when the muslim missionaries came to distant lands and saw the local celebratory days, they asked them, quite apart from *how* the day was celebrated, what is this festival *about*. and that’s why many of the above commemorative days are even still around, while others were rejected. many of them, at the time the missionaries encountered them, were celebrated in prohibited ways (say, nowruz), yet today have turned into quite acceptable celebrations. some of them still shared today between muslim and non-muslim groups of the same race/nation, show this divide in *means* of celebration (say, chinese new year, chingming), while the positive *reason* for commemoration continues to be shared. by the article’s reasoning, they never should have been accepted in the first place because it is impossible to separate from its means of celebration, which is the same thing as what the festival is about. elsewhere in the world, this has been shown not to be true. yes, we should all feel when part of us is suffering. however, the most useful people to others are those who are neither desensitised to others’ suffering nor are they so paralysed by their empathy that they don’t acquire and shore up their own strength – because if you have little, you can give little, and that includes positivity and cheerfulness. please re-look not just at your article text, but your choice of pictures and captions – to me they intend to rebuke, provoke, and presupposes a meaning for the holiday that becomes your straw man, yet may not be entirely true to many. being pictures, they speak more than the text. is it not the opinion of the scholars, that even those of us in the most grievous suffering, MUST be thankful nonetheless to Allah, because in our suffering, and perhaps even the suffering itself, is still innumerable blessings from Him? and therefore even if the ummah is in a sorry state, the ummah still have things to be grateful for, and MUST reflect on and be happy about? therefore while one differ on “why pick this calendar “, or maybe express concern that it is difficult for your local situation to not be carried away by the *prevailing* celebration style today, or whether it’s locally relevant, i don’t think it is intellectually honest to say that “to be happy for what has happened in the past year is a bad thing, essentially because we collectively _did not get more_ than what we did”. and because we do not have more than we think we _should have_, thinking and hoping for a better year is inappropriate. masha-Allah brother, do you realise the implication of your reasoning? that because we didn’t have MORE than what Allah gave us, we should not be happy for what He DID? yes last year was a ‘crappy’ year for Muslims like a lot of years. but that was what Allah gave us, and it is for us to be grateful for it, and reflect on WHY we suffer and WHY in our hearts we feel resentful for what He gave to us that we are unable to feel happy or see anything good in it. truly redha is the most difficult part of our religion, and i speak as someone who struggles with it right now, but we must realise the danger of this feeling of unsatisfaction because it is a sign of a lack of redha, and very dangerous to iman, and i feel i must intervene and caution you of it and i apologise if it’s taken the wrong way. lastly, i have no direct interest in this matter, neither celebrating nor even observing new year’s day, nor am i in the West so the issue of how far to assimilate is not even relevant to me. however, because of my extended family, i know it is not fair to say the things said in this article, and I think the reasoning behind the stated disapproval of the new year commemoration is one that is disempowering of the ummah, distrustful of Allah, and exclusivist about distinct, valued, yet non-Arab cultural elements that we have – somewhat hypocritically – tolerated in other non-Arab nations in ages past who happen to be considered “Muslim” races today. i think there’s quite enough of this mindset now, and i quite resent this mindset of paranoia and fear encroaching into countries that have until recently been able to adopt holidays other then the eids with a mindset of positivity and strength, which incidentally made life a whole lot easier for converts and probably why entire kingdoms could convert in those days – but which is now re-introducing unnecessary difficulty for today’s converts that were never imposed on their predecessors a hundred years ago Junie B.
