Learn about the dates and lengths of the months of the Hijri year, astronomically


God subjugated the earth and the sky to serve man, so the sky was rich with celestial bodies that can study time through their movement, for the stability and stability of their movement like the stars “the sun, the planet and the moons.” The Arabic word for “calendar” is the first day of the month.

Many peoples have adopted their own calendars, examples of which are: the Egyptian Pharaonic “Coptic” calendar – the Julian “Gregorian” Gregorian calendar – the Hebrew calendar – the Syriac calendar – the Roman calendar – the Persian calendar – the Greek calendar – the Babylonian calendar – Hijri calendar“.


The Hijri calendar system depends on the lunar month, which is represented by the length of time that the moon takes to make a complete revolution around the Earth. 9 Ramadan – 10 Shawwal – 11 Dhul Qi’dah – 12 Dhul-Hijjah.


The Hijri, lunar or Islamic calendar is a calendar based on the lunar cycle to determine the months. Some Arab countries, such as Saudi Arabia, take it as the official calendar of the state. It was established by Caliph Omar Ibn Al-Khattab and made the migration of the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, from Mecca to Medina on Rabi’ Al-Awwal 12 (September 24 A.D.). 622 AD) as a reference for the first year in it, and this is the reason for calling it the Hijri calendar.
