    • Islamic New Year


      Today, August 9th, 2021, the Islamic New Year, or Hajiri New Year, is celebrated across the Islamic World, welcoming the year 1443 AH (after Hajira).

      The Islamic Calendar is based on a 354 or 355 lunar calendar, with its reference epoch in the year prophet Muhammad and his followers migrated from Mecca to Medina, known as Hajira, and the founding of the first Islamic community in 622 CE of the gregorian calendar.

      Since the Islamic calendar is based on lunar cycles, the Hajiri new year is used to date other important events of the Islamic faith, such as the Ramadan, month of fasting, and the start of the Hajj, the once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage for all non-disabled Muslims to perform if they can afford it to the Kaaba at Mecca.
