Maal Hijrah 1432

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you
Welcome to my blog.


To all my fellow Muslims brothers, Radin’s Blog wishing all of you a happy brand New Year of 1432 Hijrah. May the goodness that all of us achieves will remain in this year. I’m hoping that all of us did not forget about the last year and New Year prayer.

Hijrah Calendar

Okay, probably most of us have already familiar with the Hijrah Calendar system. It is first in used during the administration of the second Caliph of Islam, Amirul Mukminin Umar al-Khattab. The calendar has widely been used at that time, but there is no yearly system. Thus, the problems occur when the Governor in the Muslim Nation receives a letter of development from the Caliph. The letter announce clearly of the date, but it does not state it the year, whether it is for this year or the next year. When the matter was forwarded to the Caliph, there are several suggestion to start the new Muslim Calendar with several ideas of when the starts of the calendar. And, it is agreed by all to make the year of Hijrah event takes place will be the first year of Islam, thus its name. The Hijrah Calendar.

It is a lunar calendar and has 12 months. Please do not forget it, okay?
