Muharram 2021 Ashura Day in India, Saudi Arabia and other countries: Muharram 2021: This is where Shia and Sunni Muslims in India, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other countries will celebrate Ashura Day or Muharram’s tenth day this year
Muharram is the first month in the Islamic calendar followed by the lunar months of Safar, Rabi-al-Thani, Jumada al-Awwal, Jumada ath-Thaniyah, Rajab, Shaban, Ramadan, Shawwal, Zu al-Qadah and Zu al-Hijjah. It is the holiest month in Islam after Ramadan and marks the beginning of the lunar calendar followed by Islam.

The word Muharram means ‘not allowed’ or ‘not allowed’ which is why, Muslims are forbidden to participate in activities such as war and use it as a time for prayer and meditation. While the first day of Muharram is known as Al Hijri or the Arab New Year, the tenth day is celebrated as Ashura by the Muslim community around the world.

Islamic lunar calendar:

The Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle, in contrast with the Gregorian calendar. The moon stays 29 or 30 days in the calendar, depending on the moon. The new moon begins with the appearance of the new moon on the 29th day of the lunar month. If not visible on the 29th, the new moon lasts for 30 days and the new moon begins the next day.
Ashura Day:

Unlike the Gregorian calendar which contains 365 days, the Islamic calendar has about 354 days divided into 12 months and depends on the appearance of the glittering moon which varies from country to country. This year, the Islamic New Year is called Hijri 1443 AH (Anno Hegirae in Latin or Hijra year).

It means that it has been 1443 years since the Prophet Mohammed emigrated from Mecca to Medina. This year, Muharram’s flag was spotted on August 9 in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and other Arab countries marking Muharram’s first day on August 10.

Therefore, Ashura in these countries will be celebrated on August 19. In India, the Markazi Ruyat Committee in Hilal under Imarat in Shariah New Delhi has confirmed the start of the Islamic new year 1443 AH on Wednesday August 11, 2021, so Ashura will be marked in the country on August 20, 2021.
