Printable Islamic 2020 Calendar | Hijri Calendar 1441

The Islamic 2020 calendar is also called the Hijri calendar in Islam. It is based on the evolution of the moon and consists of 12 months in a year of 354 or 355 days. It is used to determine the dates of each month and all Islamic holidays and traditions. 

In practice, this means a sighting of the first curve of the new moon must be correctly recorded and verified before dates are published.

All dates are subject to approval following an official sighting of the first moon of the new moon. And as already discussed, there can also be local changes on a day, but you should remember that dates are obedient to an official sighting of the first curve of the new moon and can also modify by a day or by the different locations.
