Islamic New Year Is Coming, 1 Muharam

“The number of months
in the sight of Allah is twelve (in a year)
so ordained by Him the day
He created the heavens and the earth;
of them four are sacred; that is the straight usage.
So wrong not yourselves therein
and fight the pagans all together
as they fight you all together.
But know that Allah is with those who restrain themselves.”
(Al-Tauba 9:36)

They ask thee concerning the New Moons, Say:
They are but signs to mark fixed periods of time in
(the affairs of) men and for Pilgrimage.”
(Al-Baqara 2:189)

Another new year is coming........Muharam, the first month of Islamic Calendar.

Al-Hijra, the Islamic New Year, is celebrated on the first day of Muharram, the month in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE (the Hijra).
The holiday is also known simply as Muharram. Islamic years are calculated from 1 Muharram, 622 CE. They are followed by the suffix AH, which stands for "After Hijira" or Anno Higirae (Latin). In 2008, Al-Hijra will be 1429 AH.

The Islamic new year is celebrated relatively quietly, with prayers and readings and reflection upon the Hijrah.
