2021 Important Dates
The Islamic calendar is of great significance to Muslims worldwide and is considerably different from the Christian calendar used throughout the western world. The Islamic calendar doesn’t just hold sentimental significance of time and marking of important religious events, e.g. fasting and Hajj, but it holds a much deeper religious and historical meaning. All the historical events in Islamic history that are dated in the Islamic calendar, serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made in the way of Islam, especially during the time of the Prophet.
