E-SPIN Group would like to take this season greeting opportunity to wish all our Muslim customers, channel partners and suppliers, Happy Awal Muharram 2023/1445H. May all our Muslim customers and partners to have a remarkable and blessed holiday season.
According to Islamic Calendar, Awal Muharram represents the beginning of New Year for Muslim. Awal Muharram is also known as Maal Hijrah as it concurs with an important event called hijrah, an arabic word which literally means moving or emigrating. Historically, the event involved the migration of prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina to protect himself from being executed as well as to end the suffering of his fellow believers (Muslims) from the Meccan pagans.
The history of Islam continues as the emigration of Prophet Muhammad is well accepted by the people in Medina, making Maal Hijrah marks the beginning of the spreading of Islam worldwide. In certain countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, Awal Muharram is declared as public holiday. Certain Islamic practice to greet Awal Muharram include reciting the end year and the new year pray, having preaches in the mosque as self-reflection on the meaning behind Maal hijrah event. The month of Muharram also include other Islamic event such as fasting on the day of Tasu’a and Asyura.
Every event in Islamic history carries its own value in learning. One of the major teaching of Maal Hijrah is ‘sometime moving to different environment is a better way in solving problems’ because life does not get better with chance but through changes.
That being said, E-SPIN group, once again wishes all Muslims customers, channel partners and suppliers a 2023/1445H and a great festive season. As usual, please feel free to contact E-SPIN for any inquiry so we can be part of your project or operation requirements.
