Muharram for the year 2017 starts on Thursday, September 21st and ends on Thursday, October 19th. Because the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar with days starting at sunset, the holiday begins at sunset of the previous day on Wednesday, September 20th.


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.
