Enter the new year with prayers

His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Maroor Ahmad (aba) advised the world to recite the following prayers going into the new year; a reflection of the task and responsibilities at hand:

‘Our Lord, let not our hearts become perverse after Thou hast guided us; and bestow on us mercy from Thyself; surely, Thou alone art the Bestower.’ (3:9)

‘Our Lord, forgive us our errors and our excesses in our conduct, and make firm our steps and help us against the disbelieving people.’ (3:148)

So as we move on to 2023, let’s not simply say ‘Happy New Year’, let’s truly make it a happy, new year.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) welcomed year 2023 with congregational Tahajjud and Fajr prayer. After getting Allah’s blessings they had the first breakfast of the year together and young Ahmadis joined hands to cleanup local streets.

MKA East Midlands spent the new year giving back to our community by participating in a litter pick-up event in the city center. It was a great opportunity to start the year off on a positive note and do our part in keeping our city clean. We were able to collect a significant amount of litter and make a noticeable difference in the appearance of the area. It was a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all of us, and may Allah give us the strength to continue this tradition in the future InshAllah
