Happy Islamic Hijri New Year to all viewers and members

One of the holiest month of Islamic calendar after Ramadan, Muharram is based on the lunar cycle and changes every year according to the movement of the moon. While some celebrate the day as the New Year, there are Muslim’s in the world who mourn in the first month of Islamic calendar i.e. Muharram. Devotees in the month of Muharram mourn or commemorate the battle of Karbala in which the grandson of Muhammad, Imam Hussein ibn Ali was killed after he refused to pledge allegiance to Yazid, the then successor of the Umayyad caliph. However, it is believed that Muhammad in this month emigrated from Mecca to Medina which is also known as Hijra. The Islamic New Year is also known as Hijri New Year.
