Hijri Calendar

Islamic Calendar 2024 – Hijri Calendar 1445/1446

Muslims around the world use the Islamic Calendar (also known as the Lunar or Hijri calendar) to determine the dates of religious events and observances. This Hijri calendar, which is 12 months long, is based on the lunar cycle. As such, each new month begins when a new moon is sighted.

The difference between the Hijri and Gregorian calendar is that the Hijri follows the lunar cycle whereas Gregorian follows the orbit of the earth around the sun. The dates of the Hijri determine significant events in Islam including Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, Isra al Mi’raj, and more.
