Islamic New Year
December 6, 2021
The Islamic New Year is the day of the Muslim calendar and falls on the first day of the month of Muharram. The Islamic New Year is an official holiday in a number of Islamic countries. The Hijri date was adopted in the year 17 AH by Caliph Omar Ibn Al-Khattab. The Hijri calendar depends on determining the number of days of the month on the age of the moon and therefore it is 11 to 12 days shorter than the solar year, and that is why Shahla Muharram comes in different seasons or seasons in the Gregorian year.
