Islamic Calendar Resources
Below you will find a table of the yearly islamic calendars for the years around the current year of 2020. They are available in two versions: the Umm-ul-Qura Calendar (which is used as civil islamic calendar in Saudi Arabia) and the Global Islamic Calendar which is based on sighting probability of crescent moon globally.The two versions of the islamic calendar mostly has the same dates, but sometimes they differ on the length of certain hijri months.
Use this islamic calendar tool to find out the islamic hijri dates from any gregorian or chritian era dates.
HilalMap is an online tool to generate and display hilal or crescent moon visibility map for given days at the starts of the islamic hijri months It produces a map of the world with color-coded shaded regions indicating the various degree of possibility in sighting the crescent moon. The HilalMap therefore, is a useful visual tool to quickly gauge if the crescent moon will be visible in the evening from a given location on earth. It can also be used as a guide to make lunar calendar or moon-sighting based islamic calendar.

It is now has now an option to set the calendar based on the Suggested Global Islamic Calendar proposed by Dr. Khalid Shaukat from the Fiqh Council of North America.Nevertheless, you can adjust the islamic date by a few days to synchronise with the current date in your country.

As the lunar month of the islamic calendar is tightly correlated with the phase of the moon, I decided to design this widget that shows the current date in both gregorian and hijri. This widget may be called an astronomy widget, while it displays not only the current phase of the moon, but also the age, the date and time of the last and next new moon, as well as the full moon.
