Islamic New Year -1435H

Hijri refers to the Islamic Calendar is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months (started by the month of Muharram – ended by the month of Dzu al-Hijjah) in a year of 354 or 355 days, also known as Muslim calendar or Hijri calendar (AH). It is used to date events in many Muslim countries (concurrently with the Gregorian calendar), and used by Muslims everywhere to determine the proper days on which to observe the annual fast (see Ramadan), to attend Hajj, and to celebrate other Islamic holidays and festivals. The first year was the Islamic year beginning in AD 622 during which the emigration of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina, known as the Hijra, occurred. Each numbered year is designated either H for Hijra or AH for the Latin anno Hegirae (in the year of the Hijra); hence, Muslims typically call their calendar the Hijri calendar. As the new moon rises on the month of Muharram, marks the new year of Islamic Lunar Calendar 1435H. ( 2 photos total )
