Islamic Calendar 2024: List Of Holidays And Special Occasions

Concerning Islam, a survey found that 24.9% of the world's population believes in the religion of Islam. Apart from that, Islam is regarded as the world's second largest religion. The Islamic calendar, or Hijri calendar, is used by Muslims around the world to calculate the dates of religious festivals and ceremonies. The Islamic calendar is based on twelve lunar months. The new month begins when a new moon is seen, according to this. 

The lunar phases are used to calculate the Islamic calendar 2024. Each month lasts for a full moon, which is believed to be the duration between the next new moon and the next new moon. The months in the Islamic calendar 2024 are determined by astronomical observations. A new month can begin only when a rising crescent moon is seen shortly after sunset. The rising crescent moon is the phase of the moon that begins immediately after the New Moon.

Additional Information: Unlike other calendars that use leap days or leap months each 100 years, the Islamic calendar 2024 is not based on astronomical seasons. An Islamic year is about 11 days shorter than 100 consecutive years. This is why the Islamic calendar cannot be used for farming or other activities. Most Muslim countries utilize the Gregorian calendar with the Hijri system as their civil calendar.

Islamic Calendar 2024 

The Islamic calendar for 2024 has 12 months with 29 or 30 days. If the crescent Moon is visible shortly after sunset on the evening of the third day, the next day is considered the first day of the new month. If this does not occur, the 30th day of the current month is added, followed by the first day of the next month. 

Interesting Facts: The four months are considered sacred in Islam which are Rajab, Dhul-Qadah, Dhul-Hijjah and Muhurram.

Islamic Calendar 2024 History And Background 

The Hijri calendar used today is believed to be based on the pre-Islamic calendar used by ancient Arabic and uses the same month names. It was a lunisolar calendar in which the lengths of the months were changed according to the phases of the moon, and a leap month (nasi) was added to realign the time count with the ordinary solar year. To create a pure lunar calendar after the Muslim conquest of Mecca, the leap month was abolished.

According to the Iranian astronomer Al-Biruni (973-1048 CE), Caliph Umar (c.583 - 644 CE) introduced the computation of the Islamic year in 638 CE. Year numbers were not utilized in pre-Islamic time calculation since each year was marked by a significant event that occurred in it.

Hijri Calendar 2024 Significance

The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar that Muslims around the world use to predict the timing of key holidays such as Ramadan and Hajj. It is also known as the Hijri calendar since it begins with the year of the Prophet's journey.

The ninth month of the year is considered the month of Roza and fasting in the Hijri calendar. The next month begins with Eid al-Fitr, one of Islam's two great feasts. Following this, the twelfth and final month is reserved for pilgrimage and Hajj to Dhul-Hijjah. Eid ul-Azha, the Muslim religion's second holiest celebration, occurs after pilgrimage.

Talking about other notable days for Muslims, the tenth of the first month of Muharram is usually observed. It is stated that on this day, Moses and the children of Israel were delivered from the clutches of Pharaoh. Aside from that, Hussain, the Prophet's grandson, was martyred on this day. As a result, many Muslims fast on this day, while Shia Muslims grieve. In Shawwal, it is customary to fast for 6 days. Although it is not mandatory for everyone. The Islamic New Year and the Prophet's birthday occur during the third month of Rabi ul Awal.

Special 2024 Islamic Holidays 

Al-Hijra/Muharram- 7 July, 2024 

As Per Islamic Calendar 2024, Al-Hijra is a significant Muslim holiday that commemorates the start of the new year. The day commemorates the formation of the first Islamic community and the beginning of the Muslim period. The Islamic New Year begins on the first day of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calendar. Since the Islamic calendar is based on the phases of the moon, Al-Hijra occurs on different dates each year. From 2016 to 2026, it will take place from June to October.
