My Hijri Calendar Desk Stand
My Hijri Calendar is an elegant piece of art, doubling up as an Islamic calendar. This can be used as a Ramadan countdown calendar as well as being used for the remaining months of the year.
Made from superior grade birch plywood, laser engraved for a sharp, concise finish and supplied with quality magnetic mirrored acrylic counters. Although this piece stands beautifully on it’s own, we have also included a slot along the top for displaying personalised reflection or reminder cards, or additional decorative headers which can be purchased separately. This is a quality piece made to last for years to come.
As a home-educating mother this concept developed from my passion to teach and live our lives in tune with the Islamic days and months of the year.
Living in the west under the Gregorian calendar, we are often led to relate times of the year to celebrations such as Easter, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and so forth.
Aside from the popular months such as Ramadan and Dhul-Hijjah - how instinctively do we recall the other months within the Islamic Calendar?
The Hijri calendar was formed when Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his Companions emigrated to Madinah from Makkah, this was the step to the formation of the first Islamic State. With the latter in mind, regular recognition of these months at the time they occur gives us a sense of deeper connection with our roots. Recalling the dates of significant historical events or the months of the births and deaths of historical Islamic role models has the possibility of creating a momentum of educating ourselves and future generations in this living moment in time, aiding us towards further connection and reflection.
The Hijri Calendar, also known as the Islamic calendar consists of 12 lunar months;
Each month comprises of either 29 or 30 days. It is the sighting of the new crescent moon after sunset that marks the first day of each month and each year is approximately 354 days long.
The 12 months in order are as follows;
