Muslims Around the World Brought in the New Year in Style

We obviously don’t need to tell you guys that Muharram is calculated on the lunar calendar and therefore falls on a different day every year. That’s probs why it’s not celebrated on the same scale as Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adh or New Year’s Eve (NYE).

NYE is a day that unites everyone regardless of their race, ethnicity or religious beliefs. It sends ripples of celebration across the globe; with festive food, fantastic fireworks and plenty of dodgy dad dancing, NYE is the biggest party of the year. And Muslims seemed to really push the boat out this year.

Here are the ways that some Muslims across the world brought in 2018.

Istanbul, Turkey

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Karachi, Pakistan

Rajasthan, India

Muslims joined Christians for the celebrations in Iran

People of all religions celebrated in London

And the rest…

Got any good pics of your NYE celebrations? Why not share them with us on FB? Either comment beneath a post or slide into our DMs; we’d love to see what you’ve been up to.

Happy New Year from team Ummahsonic!
