QUESTION:

When does the new Islamic year begin?


ANSWER:

In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.

The Islamic calendar begins with the Prophet’s migration from Mecca to Madinah, which took place in the month of Rabi’ Al-Awwal. Therefore, the month of Rabi’ Al-Awwal marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar.
