Islamic Calendar

Question

Why should we call lunar calendar as Islamic calendar? Is it really Islamic or just lunar?


Answer

Lunar Calendar is not Islamic. It is Muslim caendar. Islamic is something that is part of the religion. Time and its various units and divisions are not religious in nature. The Islamic sources had to refer to the times in the known terms in those days. This does not make those time marks Islamic.
