1 Hijri (621 AD)

A New Beginning

The Hijri era begins from the time the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) emigrated (Hijrah) from Mecca to Medina. He left Makkah at the command of His Lord, saying (to Makkah):

“You are the place that Allah loves most and you are most loved by Him. If your inhabitants had not driven me away, I would not have forsaken you.”
