Day of Friday
The Qur’an invokes the importance of Friday as a sacred day of worship in Sura Al Jumua’.
It is the opening month of the Islamic year and one of the four months declared as sacred by Allah.
The second month of the Islamic year sees the wafat of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and Imam Ali Ar-Ridha (pbuh).
Rabi’ul Awwal is the third month of the Islamic calendar and is significant as the month of birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Jamaad ul Awwal
This is the fifth month of the Islamic Calendar. The word Jamad implies dryness & lack of rain, with this month being the first of the dry months.
Jamaad ul Akher
This is the sixth month of the Islamic calendar. The origin of the word Jumada, is used to denote dry, parched land and hence denotes the dry months.
The seventh month of the Islamic calendar marks the beginning of the spiritual season with its climax being the month of Ramadhan.
Imam Ali (pbuh) said that the Lord had called it Sha’ban because His favours and bounties were scattered (sha’aba) all over during it.
Shawwal is the first of the three months named as “AshHural-Hajj” (i.e. the months of Hajj).
This is one of the four sacred months, and is also one of the 3 months known as AshHural Hajj.
This is one of the four sacred months, the others being Dhulqa’da, Muharram and Rajab.
