Muslims around the world utilize the Islamic Calendar (also recognized as the Lunar or Hijri calendar) to decide the dates of religious events and observances. In the case of Muslim holidays or significant dates, Muslim students particularly may be too embarrassed or shy to recognize these practices or holidays, which are not yet a part of conventional American culture.

Each Islamic year starts through Muharram and has one holy month of Ramadan, Hijri year has 2 Eids, Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha. The Arabic word “Islam” means capitulation and Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is the final messenger from God.
Basing the Islamic calendar on the moon means it can be predict in advance but in practice, a sighting of the first falcate of the new moon is established before the start of each month is recognized and other dates inside that month can then be determined.
