A new year is a celebration in which a culture celebrate finishing of year and beginning a next year. The culture that have measure annual calendar have a new year celebration. The day of new year in Indonesia celebrate on January, 1st because Indonesia adapted from Gregorian calendar, like a majority of state in the world.

Many of people celebrate A night of year change with go on vacation to some place, watching a music show, watching television, burn a corn chat with the others, go to seashore and then daydream while look a sea, while stay up and talk all night, sparkler party, play a trumpet in moments entering a new year, leather puppet all night moreover not behind that lately what be a trend in any place apparently, celebrate a new year with held a dzikir together.

Talk about a law of the new year occasion with devout, according to the any reference in the books and internet, and according to the Islamic teacher says, Rasulullah saw. Didn’t show by example for celebrate a new year, moreover celebrate it with dzikir, or every devout. Moreover, in several of reference, mentioned that it’s a bid’ah!!! There are many different opinions about a law of a new year masehi celebration. Part of the people are forbid it and another part are permit it with a requirements.

1.    an opinion that forbid a new year celebration
They who forbid a night of new year masehi celebration, adduce arguments. The night of a new year celebration actually is a worshipping ritual by adherents of a religion in Eropa, either Nasrani or other religion. Finally, a new year masehi celebration is an infidel religion holiday celebration. However, may be there are certain opinion that a new year celebration is in their aim, but at least a muslim who celebrate a night of new year is like an infidel worshipping. And the law of it’s just resemble is forbidden, in the same manner as Rasulullah saw. Says:
من تشبه بقوم فهو منهم
A man who resemble what are doing by a community (certain religion), so he included a part of them.

Forbidding a night of new year celebration to the muslims is the effort to prevent and protect them from negative influence which usual done by immoral man. Celebrate a night of new year arrival is a bid’ah that never do by Rasulullah saw., disciples of Muhammad saw., and salafus shalih.

So the law of new year celebration is bid’ah if exspecially in the night of new year, held a certain ritual worshipping, like a qiyamullail, praying together, istighatsah, night meditation, contemplation of natural, or other mahdhah worshipping, because there are not base of syar’i. A muslim who always a follower celebrate a new year will stricken by misfortunes, they are:
1.    it is ones form of tasyabbuh (resemble) an infidel peoples that prohibited by Rasulullah saw.
2.    Doing the deed of loyalty like a dzikir, read a holy Qur’an, and the others which be specialed to welcomed a new year arrival is a bid’ah which misled.
3.    Ikhtilath (mixed up) between a boy and girl as we seen on almost a whole of new year celebration moreover till fall into sexual acts outside of marriage, na’udzubillahi min dzalika
4.    Wasting a muslims properties, because money that they take out to celebrate it (buy the foods, shared out a gift, play a trumpet, etc.) is unimportance inside Allah swt. And other misfortunes in the form of sin and to be avoided an religious grounds. Wallahua’lam

2.    an opinion that permit a new year celebration
an opinion that permit it is set out by an argument that a new year masehi celebration is not always related with certain ritual worshipping. All of it is in their aim. If aimed to worship or always a follower an infidel man, so it is forbidden. If it is not, so it is not forbidden.

They take a comparison with a muslim vacation in Christmas. In the fact, every red date in calendar because Christmas, a new year, ascension of Jesus, Easter, and the other, muslims follow to official leave, and school vacation. In addition, a syari’ah banking, Islamic school, Islamic boarding school, department of religious affairs, and other Islamic institutions also follow to official leave. Does the muslim vacation because that Kristen holiday included celebrate their holiday? Generally we will answer that it is in their aim. If aimed to worship or always a follower an infidel man, so it is forbidden. If it is not, so it is permitted.

The people habitual to celebrate a night of a new year with drink a wine, zina, and other immoral deed, it’s law is forbidden. But if what they are doing is not immoral, so it is not forbidden. The things which forbidden are their immoral deed, not their night of a new year celebration. For example, a muslim took advantage of night of a new year event to do a positive things, like five the foods to the poor and needy, helps orphanage, cleaning living space and the others.
