Awal Muharram (Office Closed)
September 1, 2019 - September 2, 2019
Awal Muharram (also called Maal Hijrah) celebrates the beginning of the Islamic New Year. Muharram, derived from the word haram, which means sinful, is a month considered most sacred of all besides the month of Ramadan. During this time, Muslims are forbidden to fight; hence, a time of mourning and peace.
