Islamic New Year

The Hijri New Year, also known as the Islamic New Year, is celebrated on the initial day of Muharram, the inaugural month of the Islamic calendar, which follows a lunar system distinct from the Gregorian calendar. The Islamic New Year precedes the Gregorian calendar by ten days each year. For instance, the year 2023 CE corresponds to the Islamic years AH 1444–1445.

This occasion signifies the commencement of the Muslim era and the establishment of the first Islamic community. Additionally, it holds particular significance for Muslims, as it marks the period when Prophet Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina.
