Islamic Calendar 2024 – Hijri Calendar 1445/1446

The Hijri calendar is a lunar calendar, consisting of 12 months of 354 or 355 days. As it is a lunar calendar, there is an annual drift of 10 days, which means that it is not synchronised with the seasons, with the dates being repeated every 33 years.
