Some people turn the New Year into the unreasonable philosophy of just have fun and think of nothing else screaming in joy and drinking alcoholic beverages as if they did not lose one year from their lifespan but rather added one year to it.
Maybe they are resorting to that cancellation of consciousness and reasoning in order not to ponder over one year that they have lost.
The Islamic scholars who consider time to be more precious than money never become consent with such unconsciousness. Rather, they insist that we must reckon how we spent the whole year. If you wish, we can listen to them and see what kind of an accounting we must do at the end of the year we spent.

The first of Muharram marks the start of the new Islamic year in Islam. It is important because this month is one of the four in the year described as the sacred months by Allah Almighty. Therefore, our conduct during this period should reflect the teachings of Allah and His Messenger.
We should explain to our children that it is a time to pray to Allah for guidance during the next year. We should pray that Allah protects us from evil, sin and calamity and guides us towards His obedience. With this in mind, perhaps we should ensure that everyone starts the year on the right note, by engaging in Quranic recitation and Salam upon the greatest of all prophets.
