Muharram or the first month in the Islamic calendar is observed by many Muslims across the globe. With the viral pandemic limiting the scope of observances and celebrations, people cannot organize processions or visit each other’s homes. So we need to find new ways to mark the Islamic New Year or the Al Hijri 1442 while maintaining all COVID-19 safety protocols.

WhatsApp stickers can play a very important role in uniting people digitally. Stickers perfectly embody the feelings behind an occasion. You can use in-app stickers or third-party ones to deliver the message of peace and respect to your contacts.
