For one thing, i can get over 2014's bad occurrences and negativity and have better thoughts, and hopefully these manifest into better actions and better outcomes for me and those around me-and eventually those around them (ripple ripple).
The Lunar month is based on the time it takes the moon to complete a single orbit around the earth and it is just over 29½ days. There are many advantages to the Lunar calendar. For example, the various dates in the Islamic Calendar such as Ramadan and Hajj rotate every year and are not fixed like the Solar Year. People, therefore, will perform acts of worship in various climatic conditions and in different length of hours in submission to the will of Allah where human imagination plays no part.The new moon marks the beginning of each new lunar month and it is easy for people to see the new moon and know that a new month has begun. This probably explains why most ancient civilizations such as the Babylonians, the Jews, the Greeks and the Egyptians in the Middle East, the Aztecs and the Incas of the West, and the Hindus and the Chinese of the East used this system . Interestingly, the English word ‘month’ is derived from the word ‘moon’.
The twelve months of the Islamic Calendar are as follows:
6. Jumada al-Ukhra
11. Dhul Qa‘dah
12. Dhul Hijjah
