    Islamic Calendar in King Khaled airport (10 Rajab 1428)

    The Islamic calendar, Muslim calendar or Hijri calendar (AH) is a lunar calendar consisting of 12 months in a year of 354 days.

    It 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 fasting, to attend Hajj, and to celebrate other Islamic holidays and festivals.

    The first year was the Islamic year beginning in AD 622 during which the emigration of the Islamic prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina, known as the Hijra, occurred. Each numbered year is designated either "H" for Hijra or "AH" for the Latin anno Hegirae ("in the year of the Hijra"); hence, Muslims typically call their calendar the Hijri calendar.

    The current Islamic year is 1435 AH. In the Gregorian calendar, 1435 AH runs from approximately 3 November 2013 (evening) to 23 October 2014 (evening).
