Islamic Calendar 1438 AH : Hijri Calendar 2017 PDF Download

Islamic Calendar also known as Muslim calendar or Hijri calendar is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months in a year consisting of 354 or 355 days.

The Islamic year begins on the first day of Islamic month of Muharram, and is counted from the year of the Hijrah —the year in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina in the year 610 C.E. (Hijrah means “migration” in Arabic).

Islamic Calendar 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 fast (see Ramadan), to attend Hajj, and to celebrate other Islamic holidays and festivals.

The Islamic calendar is the official calendar in the Middle-East & Gulf, especially Saudi Arabia. However other Muslim countries use the Islamic calendar for only religious occasions.

The current Islamic year is 1438 AH. In Gregorian calendar, 1438 AH runs from approximately 3 October 2016 to 21 September 2017.

The Twelve months of Islamic Hijri Calendar are –

  1. Muharram (Forbidden)

  3. Rabia Awal (First spring)
  4. Rabia Thani (Second spring)
