What are the names of the
Islamic months? And what is the
Islamic ruling on celebrating the
New Hijri Year and reciting
Du'aa at the end of the year
(before Maghrib prayer) and
reciting Du'a at the New Year
(after Maghrib prayer).

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad is His slave and

The lunar/Hijri months are as
1- Muharram
2- Safar
3- Rabee’ Al-Awwal
4- Rabe'i al-Aakhir
5- Jumaadaa al-Oulaa
6- Jumaadaa al-Aakhirah
7- Rajab
8- Sha’baan
9- Ramadan
10- Shawwaal
11- Thul-Qi’dah
12- Thul-Hijjah

As for celebrating the new Hijri
year, it is not reported from the
Prophet that he ever
celebrated his Hijrah (migration
to Madeenah); neither is this
reported from his companions
may Allah be pleased with them,
who undoubtedly were keen on
enjoining the good and getting
the most reward possible. The
Muslim should follow the
Prophet and stick to his
Sunnah and keep away from
innovations in religion.
Moreover, there is no evidence
for the Du'a before or after
Maghrib prayer at the end or at
the beginning of an Islamic
year. Forms of worship are
limited to those revealed and
proved by evidence from the
Qur'an or the Sunnah.

Allah Knows best.
