What is a Hijri calendar?

Islamic calendar, also known as Muslim or Hijri calendar, is used as a religious dating system in the Muslim world. The Hijri calendar started when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) migrated from Mecca to Medina. The Prophet (PBUH) made the migration since the Muslims were severely persecuted in Mecca, and for a long time, the Muslims were suffering the Kuffar atrocities in Mecca.

It is based on a \(12\) month year beginning at the time of the new moon every month. The months alternately last for \(30 \text{and} 29\) days, barring Dhu al-Hijjah, which changes with the duration of a \(30\)-year period designed to keep the calendar in line with the actual moon phases. The Dhu al-Hijjah has \(29\) days in nineteen years, while the other \(11\)  years have \(30\) days. Therefore, \(354\)  or  \(355\) days are in a year.

No months are inserted so that the months do not stay in the same seasons but return every \(32.5\) solar years throughout the entire year of the solar or of the season.

What is Gregorian calendar?

Pope Gregory XIII launched his Gregorian calendar in \(1582\). At that time, Europe was following the Julian calendar, first implemented in \(46\) B.C. by Julius Caesar. The calendar had not been in accordance with the seasons since the Roman emperor miscalculated the solar year by \(11\) minutes. It meant that each year, Easter, which traditionally took place on \(21\) March, fell further away from the spring equinox.

In February every four years the Julian calendar included an extra day. However, the Italian scientist who developed the Pope Gregory system in \(1582\) was Aloysus Lilius. He realized that adding so many days made the calendar too long. He engineered a modification in a way that unless the year is \(100\) times divisible, a leap day is added every in the year that is divisible by \(4\). A leap day is added even if the year can also be split by \(400\). The lag created by Caesar's earlier calendar has been almost overcome although this formula may sound confusing.

Lilius's ingenious solution is still \(26\) seconds off to align the calendar with the seasons. As a consequence, a difference of several hours arose in the years after Gregory published his calendar in \(1582\). Due to this difference, the Gregorian calendar will be a full day ahead of the solar year by the year \(4909\).
