All information on IslamicFinder. The Islamic calendar, also known as the Hijri Calendar, is based on the moon. The beginning of each month is contingent on the visibility of the moon at the end of the previous month. Once the moon is sighted, the new month commences. Therefore, each month starts with a new lunar cycle. Hence, the Muslim Calendar gives only a tentative overview of the upcoming Islamic dates as the start of each month is subject to the sighting of the moon. Rabi ul Awal is the 3rd month in the Islamic Calendar. Since Rabbi al Awwal is a month of the lunar calendar, it can come in any season. Therefore the name, Rabi al Awal depicts symbolic significance as it symbolizes the advent of happiness spring after the dismal winter or more specifically sadness, and not the actual season of spring.
