What is the Islamic calendar?
The Islamic calendar is one of the two calendars traditionally used in the Muslim world. It is based on the lunar calendar, but differs in a number of ways. One of the most important differences is that the Islamic calendar counts years from the Hegira, or Flight, of the Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE.
As the Islamic calendar is based on a lunar calendar, it differs from the Gregorian calendar, which is based on the Earth's solar calendar. This means that the Islamic calendar does not have an equivalent to Christmas or Easter.
