Muharram for the year 2015 starts on Wednesday, October 14th and ends on Wednesday, November 11th. Because the Muslim calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Tuesday, October 13th.


Muharram is the first month in the Islamic calendar. The first day of Muharram is considered by many Muslims as the start of the New year for Islam. This day is not a public holiday so government and business offices will be open depending on the day. Celebrated on the 10th day of Muharram is Ashura, a day of reflection and fasting.
