Muharram/Islamic New Year

Muharram/Islamic New Year

Muharram is one of the most important months for Muslims and marks the start of the Islamic New Year. The month of Muharram is generally deemed the holiest of the year, even more so than Ramadan, and many Muslims in the UK spend its first day praying and reflecting on their lives.
