Islamic celebrations prominently differ from the western ones. You must make a list with valid points that accompany your Islamic New Year’s resolutions of 2017. In this article, I would make a rundown that will help you out in making YOUR list of perfect resolutions that you should look forward to.
The first one, for now, is, offering Salah. Salah is the most important part of your life, it is a must, and an obligatory thing for a Muslim as Allah has made this a must. You must offer your Salah five times a day even if you are busy, make time for Salah, even if you are sick, offer your obligatory prayer and I can guarantee that you will feel better than ever before. This is the first and foremost thing that you should add up to your routine for the New Islamic Year 2017.
The second one, observe fast. Fasting is a sunnah and a very healthy habit overall. It keeps your body functions in control and is medically proven to be healthy for the human body. You must make it a habit to observe fast on the first day of every month as it is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SAW). Another important thing related to fasting is Ramadan, one of the best times of the year, you must fast during Ramadan, and it will become a path to paradise for you at the end of this world.
Following the Sunnah
The third one, you must make resolutions following the Sunnah of our Prophet (PBUH), you must try to follow his footsteps in every step of the way, and I am sure it will only help you in getting a better life and will make things easy for you.
The next resolution should be, to attend the congregations that are arranged for spreading the Islamic knowledge. This will not increase your knowledge towards Islam as a religion but will make you love your Creator even more than you do now.
Celebration of Islamic Events
The fifth one for today is that you must celebrate all the Islamic events with full happiness as you do the western events; this includes Eid Milad-un-Nabi, Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Azha and more. These are the best times of the year, and you should welcome them with open arms and only happiness.
Kindness and Love for others
The sixth and one of the most important one, increase your love for other living beings. It not just includes human beings but animals as well. You should be kind to others as kindness is that one thing that you will never regret.
Honor of Women
The seventh and the last is, you must honor women as it is considered an important thing in Islam. Islam has put a lot of light on this topic, Honor of Women, it is the only religion that brings most of the women rights in the world, and you should never neglect that.
