Hijrah, the basis of Islamic Calendar
1437 years have passed since the Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam made his epoch-making journey called Hijrah.
Islam, unlike other religions, is not found on hero-worship.
The commencement of the Islamic Calendar, therefore, is not based on the birth or death of Prophet Muhammad! It is based on Hijrah, – so significant and epic an event that the great Caliph Umar ibn al Khattab chose it as the epoch of the age and the start of the Muslim Calendar.
A brief info on Hijrah
The Migration of Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam from Makkah to Madinah in the year 622 A.D is called Hijrah.
Prophet Muhammad sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam had spent thirteen years and almost two months of his prophetic career in Makkah. On 27th Safar in the 14th year of Prophethood, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, left his house. The noble Messenger of Allah went to his trusted friend-companion Abu Bakr’s house and both of them made the hijrah together.
They took a route least expected. That route was on the south of Makkah leading to Yemen while Madinah was on the opposite direction, north of Makkah.
After staying in the Cave of Thawr for three days, on the 1st of Rabi al Awwal the Prophet, peace be upon him, started his journey to Madinah.
After eight days of travel, they reached Quba and stayed there for four days. And on 12thRabi al Awwal, the Messenger of Allah reached Yathrib, which later became popular as Madinatun Nabi, the City of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and Madinah al Munaw’warah (The Radiant City)
I would like my readers to understand the Hijrah Route of our glorious Prophet (peace be upon him).

Invoking salutations and blessings upon the Last and Final Messenger is enjoined upon Muslims!
"Certainly, Allah and His Angels do send greetings upon the Prophet, O those who Believe, you too, send sincere greetings and salutations upon him". (Al Qur'an 33:56) Sal-lal-laahu 'Ala Muhammad, Sal-lal-laahu 'Alaihi Wasallam
“The Sunnah is like the Ark of Noah. Whoever embarks on it reaches salvation and whoever refuses, is drowned”. Imam Malik
"LAA ILAAHA IL-LAL-LAAH, MUHAMMADUR RASOOLULLAH". This no ordinary declaration is in fact the most revolutionary statement on earth! A soul-stirring, earth-shaking proclamation! That which makes falsehood shiver in its shoes! That which sends shock waves to the oppressor's heart! A conscious proclamation that transforms ruffians into finest gems of highest quality! A proclamation that brings utmost satisfaction to the believer's heart! This concise declaration is the Manifesto of Islam, the Marrow of all teachings of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) who spoke words of surgical precision, whose simple yet splendid belief and teachings brought about a spectacular revolution in the history of all times! -- MuQeet
