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.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
HAPPY NEW YEAR: Dubai counts down the seconds to 2018 with a humongous building-sized display.

Muslims joined Christians for the celebrations in Iran
People of all religions celebrated in London
And the rest…

Happy New Year from team Ummahsonic!
