10 January 2008 @ 1 Muharam 1429.
The 1st of Muharram is New Year’s Day, and with it marks the beginning of the Islamic (Hijri) Calendar. Its real significance lies in the major turning point in the course of Islam. As told in the Noble Qur’ân: “Verily the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred. That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein …”. [At-Taubah: 36].

I am ‘berhijrah’ myself.
