Awal Muharram/Maal Hijrah

I would like to wish all my Muslim brethren a blessed Awal Muharram.

Awal Muharram is the first day of the Islamic Calendar, similar to January 1. However, and more significantly, the first day of the Islamic Calendar also coincides with the Maal Hijrah; it was when the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) migrated from Mecca to Medina in 622 AD.

In essence, this auspicious day is symbolic of a transition from bad to good and today is a good time to reflect on one's self and understand what one has accomplished in life - worldly or otherwise.

Also, my Small Baby flew in from KL today to be with me :)
