The Islamic New Year is a cultural event which Muslims observe on the first day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic calendar. Many Muslims use the day to remember the significance of this month, and the Hijra, or migration, Islamic prophet Muhammad made it to the city now known as Medina. Recently, in many areas of Muslim population, people have begun exchanging cards and gifts on this day, though this is not commonly done. For Shia Muslims, Muharram is the month grief and sorrow because they mourn the death of Imam Hussain and his companions on the day of Ashura.

M.Reza Sahel: Thanks my friend for ur comment, I appreciate that.

sana: sometimes their perception on Hijra is crossing over of the Hijra concept in Islam itself. They ( some of people ) can't differentiate between Islamic way and culture.

Yes Raza !
I agree with you but it one's thinking level and may be some peoples follow different concepts of Islam.If we follow our correct Islamic rules then we surly follow our best culture of Islam and Islam gives the concept of happiness (means celebrate every day positively).
