What is Islamic New Year?
The Islamic New Year is the first day of the Hijri calendar. Unlike the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the Christian era, the Hijri calendar is lunar-based. That means that its months are determined by the moon’s phases, as opposed to the sun.
This means that the Islamic New Year can fall anywhere between September and December on the Gregorian calendar. The Islamic New Year in 2022 will fall on July 29th.
When is Islamic New Year?
The Islamic New Year is the first day of the month of Muharram, which falls on a different day each year because the Islamic day begins after sunset.
