In Islam, there is no new year celebration 2020-2021. However, the moment of this New Year's Eve, can be filled with muhasabah.

A person who is pious is those who carry the best of provisions, and on the way to find such provisions, someone often feels tired and bored which results in him being unaware so that he slips and falls in futur (weak enthusiasm for doing righteous deeds ).

Muhasabah or self-correction will help a person to face the various obstacles he finds in his search for these provisions.

Muhasabah is also one of the commands from Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'ala.

Allah says QS. Al-Hashr: 18) which means:

O you who have believed, fear Allah . And let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow - and fear Allah . Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.

So, how the way to muhasabah ? When a person commits muhasabah it will be clear in front of him the sins he has committed. So what needs to be done is, first, to self-correct in terms of obligation, whether it has deficiencies or not. Because carrying out this obligation is the main thing in this religion compared to leaving what is haram.

Second, self-correcting if it is haram, is it still being done or not. For example, if he still interacts with usury, then he tries to get away from it. If you have taken someone else's rights, it will be returned. If you have wronged someone else, then apologize and pray for that person with a good prayer.

In other cases where correction is impossible (but must be abandoned, such as drinking alcohol and looking at a woman who is not a mahram), then it is ordered to repent, regret and be determined not to repeat the sin again, coupled with multiplying good deeds that can erase ugliness.

That way its is importance of muhasabah and how to do it. Maybe we have been negligent a lot, but are not aware of how to improve ourselves. In order to always have a feeling of wanting to do good, every Muslim should always increase his dhikr and add more prayers to our Prophet Muhammad.
