Hi there appreciated Readers,We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you all on the new Islamic New Year 1437!For those of you who have no idea what the new Islamic year is all about, here’s a small summery taken from Wikipedia:The Islamic calendar, Muslim calendar or Hijri calendar (AH) is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months in a year of 354 days.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 fasting, 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 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.The current Islamic year is 1437 AH. In the Gregorian calendar, 1437 AH runs from approximately 14 October 2015 to 2 October 2016.We hope you all enjoy your holidays regardless of your religion or beliefs, have a fun weekend!
