The Hijri Calendar, also known as the Islamic Calendar 2023, runs from August 1, 2022, to July 21, 2023. The sighting of the new moon, which ushers in each month, serves as the basis for this Islamic lunar calendar. On August 23, 2022, the first day of Muharram 1, 1444 AH, the Islamic New Year will begin. The 12 months of this year are Muharram, Safar, Rabi al-Awwal, Rabi al-Thani, Jumada al-Ula, Jumada al-Akhira, Rajab, Sha'aban, Ramadan, Shawwal, Dhu al-Qi'dah, and Dhu al-Hijjah. The months of the Islamic calendar are not synchronised with those of the Gregorian calendar since the former is shorter than the latter.
