On August 31, 2019, according to the Gregorian calendar, or the first day of the month of Muharram, opens a new, 1441, Muslim year, leading to the beginning of the Hijra - the relocation of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) from Mecca to Medina. This historic event is rich in lessons for all generations of Muslims.

Muslims do not celebrate the advent of the new year on Hijra in any special way, but its beginning should be a reason for everyone to stop and think.
