Hirjah Calander ( AH )

Understanding The Islamic Calendar

The Islamic calendar is based on a lunar year of 12 full lunar (monthly) cycles, taking 354 days. Each new year in the Islamic calendar thus falls 10 or 11 days earlier according to the 364 day solar calendar. The 12 months of the Islamic year are:






Rabi' al-Awwal ("Rabi' 1")


Rabi' al-Thani ("Rabi 2")


Jumada al-Ula ("Jumada I")


Jumada al-Akhirah (Jumada II)










Dhu al-Qa'dah


Dhi al-Hijjah

The first day of Year One of the Islamic calendar was set as the first day of the Hijrah, the Prophet's migration from Makkah to Madinah on July 26, 622 C.E. The western convention in designating Islamic dates is thus by the abbreviation AH, which stands for the Latin anno hegirae, or "Year of the Hijrah."

To roughly convert an Islamic calendar year (AH) into a Gregorian equivalent (A.D./C.E.), or vice versa, use one of the following equations.
AD = 622 + (32/33 x AH)
AH = 33/32 x (AD - 622)

Six Articles Of Faith

There are six Articles of Faith in Islam. These basic beliefs shape the Islamic way of life.

1- Belief in the Oneness of God:
There is One God, Supreme and Eternal, Creator and Provider, Who is Merciful and Compassionate. God has neither father nor mother, and no sons or daughters. God has never fathered anyone, nor was He fathered. God has no equals. He is God of all humankind, not of a special tribe, race, or group of people. He is the God of all races and colours, of believers and unbelievers alike. God is Mighty and Supreme, yet is also very near to pious, thoughtful believers, answering their prayers and helping them. God asks us to know Him, to love Him, and to follow His Law, for our own benefit and salvation.

2- Belief in the Angels of God
Angels are pure and spiritually obedient beings, created by God to fulfill His commands and worship Him tirelessly.

3- Belief in the Revelations (Books) of God
Muslims believe in the Revelations sent by Almighty God to His Prophets and Messengers including the Qur’an, the Torah, the Gospel, the Scrolls of Abraham and the Psalms of David.

4- Belief in the Prophets of God
All Messengers and Prophets of God such as Noah, Moses, Solomon, Jesus and Muhammad were mortal human beings endowed with Divine Revelations and appointed by God to teach humankind how to submit to His will and obey His Laws.

5- Belief in the Day of Judgment
Muslims believe in an appointed Day of Judgment and in Heaven and Hell. After the world ends, Muslims believe that all people who have died will be brought back to life (or, resurrected) in order to face the Judgment rendered to each of them by Almighty God.

6- Belief in Premeasurement (Qadar)
Muslims believe that Almighty God has knowledge of, and control over, everything that exists in all time and space.

Girlfriend's vs Mother's love

She may have sexy body curves,
but it could never match a mother's curve when carrying me;

She may have pretty eyes,
but it could never match a mother's eyes that watched me from any danger;

She can be a good listener towards my expression,
but couldn't match a mother who listens to my nagging and discontent;

She may smell good everyday i met her,
but it could never match a mother's smell who's working hard everyday to make her child live a better life;

She may have an adorable smile that'll make you melt,
but it can never match a thousand meaningful smile by a mother just to see her child grow up;

She may have smooth hands that shiver you when touched,
but it could never match a mother's hands that held you through thick and thin;

She may have nice pair of legs ,
but those can never match a mother's pair legs that walked 9 months carrying us;

err......this is just based on my feelings at the moment.....sorry if there's mistakes somewhere .....after all.....i'm only human.........
