The hijra (migration) to the new state meant that muslims were able rule by the Shariah of Allah (swt) without compromise! Halal and haram really meant legal and illegal.
As we have entered the new hijri calendar, the month of Muharram bought many blessings with it.
For a more detailed post on the blessings of Muharram please read the full article on the Importance of the month of Muharram.
One can argue that the hijri calendar is more accurate than the Gregorian calendar. The Islamic calendar is based on the siting of a new moon it is never more than 30 days or less than 29 days. The Gregorian calendar based on the sun is not so accurate as it has to borrow a day here and there and every four years it has an extra day in February hence the leap year.
So to mark the arrival of the new Islamic hijri year 1434, I’ve gathered for you 10 Islamic calendars (few weeks late) to download and print or save as your Islamic desktop wallpaper.
These are just a few of my own deviations that I created, I think they came out O.K. What do you think? Please do let me know via your comments and if you liked this then please share and subscribe to the mailing list!
