This is a message that I have seen a lot on the Internet, but in fact I have not sent it to anyone because I am not sure if it is an innovation (bid‘ah) or not. Is it permissible to spread it and will we be rewarded for doing so, or is this not permissible because it is an innovation?
“In sha’ Allah, at 12 midnight on New Year’s Eve we will all pray two rak‘ahs, or read Qur’aan, or remember our Lord, or offer du‘aa’, because if our Lord looks at the Earth at a time when most of the world is disobeying Him, he will find that the Muslims are still obeying Him. By Allah, you have to send this message to everyone you know, because the more our numbers increase, the more our Lord will be pleased.”
Please advise me, may Allah bless you.
