Islamic New Year Messages

Q. Can we send out messages such as Muharram Mubaarak, and messages congratulating our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world upon the new Islamic year. Some even say Aashura Mubaarak. Kindly advise?

A. All of these are baseless customs. This is the way of the Kuffaar. It is absolutely Haraam for Muslims to emulate the Kuffaar – right into the lizard’s hole.
