Better late than never, is what I thought when I realised I hadn’t created a list of all the islamic calendar dates for 2017.
So I’ll keep it brief and list all the dates below so you can view it all at once. And as an added bonus this year you can download the dates as an iCal file so it will automatically add all the islamic events listed here to your calendar application. It also has a reminder 24 hours before the event by default.
If you’re familiar with iCal files you’ll know how handy it is especially with the popularity of smart phones and applications that use iCal files.
If you aren’t used to using these files, in a nut-shell this file will automatically add all the islamic dates to your existing calendar as events, most popular applications use the ics file. You can use it on Google Calendar, Mac, iPhone, Microsoft, Yahoo, Hotmail, Outlook and lots more, take a look at here for more information on iCal/ics files and how to open and use them.
Note on dates, all dates are dependant upon the sighting of the new moon and taken from here.
