Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Hisham (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that the Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) would learn the following du’a for when the new month or new year would begin:

اللّهم أَدْخِلْهُ عَلينا بِالأمْنِ وَالإيمان، وَالسَّلامَةِ وَالإسْلام، وِجوارٍ مِّنَ الشَّيْطان، وَرِضْوَانٍ مِّنَ الرَّحْمن.

Allahumma adkhilhu ‘alayna bil amni wal iman, was salamati wal islam, wa jiwarim minash shaytan, wa ridwanim minar Rahman.

O Allah, bring this [month or year] upon us with security, iman, safety, Islam, protection from shaytan, and your pleasure.

(Mu’jamus Sahabah of Baghawi, & Al-Mu’jamul Awsat of Tabarani, Hadith: 6237)

Let’s Ponder upon the way in which Allah سبحانه وتعالى presents to us the weighty month of Muharram. It is a sacred month alongside Dhul Qa’dah, Dhul Hijjah and Rajab.  Indeed, it is a month of marking a transformation.
