Muslim Calendar

Hijri Calendar (Islamic Lunar Calendar)

Here is the detail of the Muslim calendar that corresponds to the month of August 2019. It contains in part the months of Dhul Qi'dah et Dhul Hidjah 1440. Depending on the country, there may be a shift of one day more or less, according to observations of the moon. Do not forget that it is advisable to fast on white days. Those are the 13, 14 et 15 of each month. See also, the calendar of Ramadan. Outside the months of Ramadan and Dhul Hijah, the calendar below is based on the astronomical calculation at the Earth scale. The reason is that for these 2 particular months, the majority of the religious authorities use the ocular vision which requires a manual adjustment of the calendar.
