Islamic Year – 1438

786
Today is the first day in the new Islamic Year 1438 A.H.
 
It marks 1438 years since the Holy Prophet Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina.
It is also the start of  Muharram; the second holiest month of the Islamic year after Ramadhan.
 
Muharram means ‘forbidden’ so many Muslims fast during this month. And in fact fighting is forbidden during this month.
