Question:

What does Islam say about Mayan Calender?

Answer:

Dear brother,

The answer is included in the following Ayah:

((Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year).))

[At-Taubah- 36]

The Islamic Calendar is connected to religious occasions (The Islamic calendar starts with the date of Al Hujrah from Mecca to Madinah), whereas the Eids (feasts) come after Ibadat (acts of worship such like Eid Al Fitr which comes after Ramadan and Eid Al Adhah which comes after Hajj).


Best regards
