In Islam, the Islamic calendar is also known as Hijri calendar and Muslim calendar.
This calendar is used by all the Muslims living all over the world, it gives information about their religious festivals, and they can know which festival is on which date.
The Islamic calendar also has 365 or 366 days like all religions, but it is a solar calendar.
But when Chandra is Kaladarshak, it has 354 or 355 days, the reason is that it is 11 days shorter than Solar Kaladarshak.
Therefore, Islamic religious dates fall on fixed dates according to the calendar, but fall behind the previous solar calendar by 11 days every year.
This is the reason, that is why it is also called Hijri. Because its first year is that in which Hazrat Muhammad had migrated from the city of Mecca to Medina.
