What is Hijri Calendar
The Hijri (Islamic) calendar is a lunar calendar, and so its months are based on the phases of the moon. It consists of 12 months, with 29 or 30 days each month. The first day of the Hijri calendar is the day of the Islamic New Year, which falls on the first day of Muharram.
The Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar, so its months are based on the Earth’s orbit around the sun. It consists of 12 months, with 31 or 30 days each month (except for February, which has 28 or 29 days). The first day of the Gregorian calendar is January 1st.
