Over the last 100 years, the Islamic Calendar has lost its status as a primary calendar for Muslims globally.
We still refer to the Islamic calendar for Ramadan, Eid, and Hajj however we rarely organize our life around it anymore.
We stand to lose much when we neglect this powerful calendar that's aligned with Divine Order.
We need to take responsibility to revive it.
Why The Islamic Calendar Still Matters
The Islamic Calendar is a powerful time system that unlocks Barakah Culture in your personal and professional life. Three reasons why the Islamic calendar still matters (read this article to learn more).
Aligns with Divine Order
The Islamic lunar calendar is the chosen calendar that is aligned with Allah's Divine Order. Allah says in the Quran: "Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred..." [Quran 9:36]
Restores Civilizational Identity
The Islamic calendar is the last institution we have as a global Muslim society that connects us together. It's a time system that has lasted for fifteen centuries and we need to take responsibility to revive it.
Unlocks Spiritual Rhythm
The Islamic calendar creates a spiritual rhythm to life through alternating between sacred time and non-sacred time (see chart below). Moreover, within each month, there's the rhythm of fasting created by the waxing and waning of the moon where we're encouraged to fast on the 13th, 14th, 15th of each month.
