Bosnian Muslim group tells followers to boycott new year’s eve

Friday, 30 December 2011

By Al Arabiya

The Islamic Community in Bosnia-Herzegovina has called on Muslims
in the country not just to boycott the upcoming New Year eve
celebrations, but to “turn off the lights early and let everyone see
you’re boycotting everything happening on that night” it said in a
statement released on Wednesday.

By taking part in the celebration, Muslims would “violate God’s
boundaries, and do something their master hates and despises” said the

The group’s statement cited quotes from a book by Almir Dumica, “Pearls
of the Sunnah in the Mosaic of Time”, in support of their position.

“On that night, turn off the lights early and let everyone see you’re

enjoy. Then, each night of the year will be much more dear to you than
the New Year’s night is to any of those who eagerly await it all year,
while a blessed feeling of triumph will overcome your soul and body,
because piousness and reason will have won over passions and ugly
customs,” the statement concludes.

The Islamic new year, which is when the Prophet Muhammad migrated from
Mecca to Madinah on Muharram first, was celebrated this year on November

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Slavic population underwent a large-scale
conversion to Islam after the region’s occupation by the Ottoman Empire
in the second half of the 15th century, giving it a distinctive role
within the Balkan region. Muslims are about 1.8 million, or roughly 8
percent of the total previous Yugoslavian population. They constitute
the majority ethno religious group in the state according to Cole, John
and Sam Beck in their book “Ethnicity and Nationality in Eastern
