Islamic New Year in Saudi Arabia Go Back
 
The Islamic New Year in Saudi Arabia is celebrated with great pomp and show. This cultural event is celebrated on the first day of Muharram and marks the first month in the Islamic Calendar.
The day signifies, the Hijra, or the migration of Muhammad from Mecca to Medina in Islamic Year 1 (1 AH), 622 CE. This day is generally celebrated by exchange of gifts and cards while Shia Muslims observe it as the beginning of the mourning month of Muharram. The Shia Muslims mourn in honor of Imam Hussain, who gave up his life in the Battle of Karbala during this period, thus this is a time to commemorate his sacrifice. The Sunni Muslim brings forth a different perspective to the festival as they observe the day as the death anniversary of the first Caliph Abu Bakr.
