Maal Hijrah or Awal Muharram is the start of the Muslim calendar year. Literally it means - migration and celebrates the prophet Mohammed's s.a.w. migration from Mecca to Medina in the year 622 AD.
Therefore, it is a time for a new beginning, a change from bad to good and a chance to re-evaluate one's life and direction.
May God Bless our Beloved Neighbourhood.
