Islamic new year History
The Islamic New Year commemorates Muhammad's migration from Mecca to Medina. This migration was to escape the oppression and violence that the non-Muslim Quraish, the predominant tribe of Mecca, had been inflicting on him and his companions. He escaped to Medina on camel with his best friend, Abu Bakr. In Medina, Saudi Arabia, they were allowed to recover and grow spiritually and as a community.
