THE ENDING AND THE BEGINNING OF THE ISLAMIC YEAR
Today is the 30th Zul Hajj which is the last day of the current Islamic year 1441. The reward of Fasting on this last day, is forgiveness for all sins committed in the past year.
Tomorrow will be the 1st Muharram which is the first day of the new Islamic year of 1442. The reward of Fasting on the 1st Muharram is forgiveness for sins which will be committed in the whole of the coming year.
Sins in this context refer to such sins which are committed unintentionally and as a result of ignorance, and we commit an abundance of such sins, the consequence of which is the punishment of Jahannam. Therefore take advantage of the bounty of fasting on these days.
