RABIUL-AWWAL

It is the third month of the lunar calendar. It is one of the months of the Islamic calendar that is formed based on the movements of the moon.

The name of this month is derived from the word "rabi", which means "spring" in Arabic. Arabs have an understanding of a time with two springs called "Rabiush-Shuhur" and "Rabiul-Azmina". Rabiush-Shuhur is the two months following the month of Safar. Rabiul-Azmina means the seasons of spring and fall. The month in which flowers blossomed was calledRabiul-Awwal and the month in which fruits ripened was called Rabiuth-Thani in the past. In the beginning, Arabs divided a year into four seasons. They accepted sayf (summer) as the first season and called the fourth season Rabi' (spring). However, since a difference of about eleven days in a month occur between a solar and lunar year, lunar months sometimes corresponded to summer and sometimes to winter; they come to the same point in every thirty-three years. The month Rabiul-Akhir is abbreviated as "R" in old documents.

This month is one of the honorable months since the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) was born in this month. According to the view accepted by the majority, the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) was born on the twelfth day of this month. His time of birth was close to the morning. Therefore, this day of the month of Rabiul-Awwal has a special importance in the long poems written about the birth of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and other works. Muslims have tried to do charity and help the poor in this month and especially on the twelfth night, and to remember the Messenger of Allah since such a historical incident took place in the month of Rabiul-Awwal.
