Islamic holy days:
Al-Hijra/Muharram is the Muslim New Year, the beginning of the first lunar month.
'Ashura recalls an event circa 680-OCT-20 CE in Iraq when an army of the Umayyad regime martyred a group of 70 individuals who refused to submit to the Caliph. One of the martyrs was Imam Husain, the youngest grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
Mawlid al-Nabi is a celebration of the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam in 570 CE. Sunni Muslims observed it on the 12th of the lunar month of Rabi'-ul-Awwal in the Islamic calendar. Shi'a Muslims celebrate it five days later. "The Mawlid al-Nabi was first observed around the thirteenth century and was preceded by a month of celebration. The actual day of Muhammad's birthday included a sermon, recitation of litanies, honoring of religious dignitaries, gift giving, and a feast. The festival spread throughout the Muslim world and is celebrated in many countries today. However, some conservative sects (e.g., the Wahhabiyah) consider the celebration to be idolatrous." 2,3
Ramadan is the holiest period in the Islamic year; it is held during the entire 9th lunar month of the year. This was the month in which the Qura'n was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. The first day of Ramadan is listed above. It is a time at which almost all Muslims over the age of 12 are expected to fast from sunup to sundown, unless they suffer from health problems which would make fasting dangerous. More details.
Id al-Fitr (a.k.a. "'Id" and "Eid") is the first day of the 10th month -- i.e. the day after the end of Ramadan. It is a time of rejoicing. Houses are decorated; Muslims buy gifts for relatives. The words " 'Id" and "Eid" mean fesival.
Id al-Adha (a.k.a. the Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice) occurs during the 12th month of the Islamic year. This immediately follows the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). It recalls the day when Abraham intended to follow the instructions of God, and sacrifice his son Ishmael. (This is not a typo; Muslims believe that Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his elder son Ishmael; Judeo-Christians believe that it was Isaac who was involved in the near sacrifice).

Rabi’a, female Sufi saint. What do you think of this quote?
Rabi'a was an amazing women. I remember hearing a story about her wanting to make a living spinning thread. One her first day as soon as she started, the machine broke. She took this as sign from God Almighty to shun the world and be absorbed in getting closer to God for the rest of her life.
I remember our Shaikh telling us this story about Rabi'a. It's a good reminder that seeing and knowing God (Allah) is the greatest reward and pleasure of all. Thank you!
i need a small article on islamic calender?
The Islamic year is lunar and so it is shorter than the solar year by 11 days (i.e. 354 days instead of 365 days). Though the Islamic year consists of 12 months, they vary from 30 to 29 days each. Cosequently, Islamic festivals, including the New Year, move back through the seasons. Accordingly, there is no western, Gregorian, equivalent that consistently matches Islamic dates.
1st month Muharram (29 days)
2nd month Safar (30 days)
3rd month Rabi' I (30 days)
