Celebration of the Islamic New Year

There is one more thing to focus on this day and that says the celebration is majorly different for both the sections of Islam Shiites and Sunnis.

Shiites Celebration

Shiites celebrate first 10 days with mourning on the slaying of the first cousin of Prophet Ali Mohammad and his only grandson Hussein Ibn Ali, who they see as the rightful caliphs to succeed their prophet. This killing which took place on 680 C.E. has marked the historic split between Shiites and Sunnis.  This year they will experience 10 days mourning and fasting. Finally, they will experience a holiday called Ashoura.

Sunnis Celebration

For all Sunnis, the celebration is a low key one. On this day they go to the mosque with their family and prays for the good life and celebrate the new year with immense gratitude. The places where the majority of Muslims live will be observed as a public holiday.

When did this Hijri Calendar start?

Although Arab tribes used a related calendar before the Prophet Mohammed, thus the new Hijri Calendar was retrospectively started which was based on the year 622 C.E.
