Did you know that Islamic calendar is 11 days shorter than Gregorian calender? because Islamic calendar is based on the motion of the Moon and Gregorian calendar based on motion of Sun.

And that is the reason for Islamic events based on the lunar calender to rotate/move around the year.
All times are GMT - 5 Hours
