Maal Hijrah, which is also called Awal Muharam, is an important day for Muslim. It falls on the first day of Muharam on every Muslim calendar year, which is the first day on Muslim calendar.

The meaning of Maal Hijrah in English is migration. On this day, Muslim remember Nabi Muhammad S.A.W migrate from Mecca to Medina on the year 622 A.D. Besides, Maal Hijrah also mean changes from bad to good side and can be said as starting point and evaluate inner-self on self achievement.

Awal means beginning in English and Muharam is the first month of Muslim calendar. In another words, this is the first day in Muslim calendar. Therefore, this is also the new year for all Muslim.

To signify this occasion, Muslims attend to various religious activities, spiritual singing, and religious meeting throughout the country.

This day has become an important religious day for all Muslim.

I would like to wish all my relatives & Muslim blogger’s friends a lovely Awal Muharam.
