Islamic New Year

October 25, 2014

The Hijri New Year, also known as Islamic New Year (Arabic: رأس السنة الهجريةRas as-Sanah al-Hijriyah) is the day that marks the beginning of a new Islamic calendar year, and is the day on which the year count is incremented.

Since the Islamic lunar year is eleven to twelve days shorter than the solar Gregorian year, the Islamic new year does not come on the same day of the Gregorian calendar every year.

The following dates on the Gregorian calendar correspond to the Islamic new year:
