Date 22 September 2017 * Hijri 1439
The Islamic new year, additionally known as Arabic new year or Hijri 1439 is the day that marks the beginning of a brand new Islamic calendar year, and is the day on which the year count is incremented. The first day of the year is determined on the first day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic calendar. The primary Islamic year starts in 622 ad with the emigration of prophet Muhammad (saw) from mecca to Medina, known as the Hijra.
All non secular duties, inclusive of prayer, fasting inside the month of Ramadan, and pilgrimage, and the dates of widespread activities, along with the birthday party of holy nights and gala’s, are calculated consistent with the lunar calendar.
Happy Islamic New Year Wishes: Happy Islamic New Year to all Muslims. May this new year brings a lot of peace, prosperity & happiness to the Muslim world. May ALLAH protect us.
