Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Arabic Manuscripts presents a chart containing Muslim-Christian Calendar. The Muslim year (A.H.) has 354 days, as opposed to 365.25 days in the Western solar year (A.D.). In other words, the A.H. year is just over 3% shorter than the A.D. Therefore, in order to obtain a rough estimate of the A.D. date one should subtract 3% of the hijri year and then add 622.

Keywords: hijrī year; Muslim year (A.H.); Western solar year (A.D.)
