MUSLIMS throughout the world welcomed Maal Hijrah yesterday, reflecting on the new beginning for the ummah celebrated with Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions 1,439 years ago. Hijrah, meaning migration in both physical and spiritual sense, marked the move of the first community from Mecca to Madinah. It was a migration from abuse and discrimination to dignity as a community of nation. It is on this day of Maal Hijrah that close to two billion Muslims resolve to serve God better this year than they did last year.
