Islamic New Year 1st Muharram, 1429

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu


They ask you,[O Muhammad], about the New Moons. Say, "They are measurements of time for the people and for hajj [Pilgrimage]." (Al-Quran 2:189)

Allah says: Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during the sacred months. (Al-Quran 9:36)

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:“The best fasting after the month of Ramadaan is fasting in the month of Muharram.” (Narrated by Muslim)

Prophet (pbuh) said:...."fasting on the day of Aashura (the 10th of Muharram) gives forgiveness of one past year"

Maal Hijrah

The Islamic calendar, just like the Gregorian one has 12 months. Islamic Month are:

Muharram
