Happy New Year Today is the new Hijri year, Islamic New Year, 1st Muharram, 1432 in the Hijra calendar. Muharram is the first month of the Islamic calendar. It is one of the four sacred months of the year in which fighting is prohibited by Allah. Since the Islamic calendar is lunar, Muharram moves from year to year when compared with the Gregorian calendar. May Allah make us true momin. Inshaallah.
