    I would like to enlighten this gentleman called Moses regarding Islamic calendar. Muslims do follow the lunar meaning simply the moon. This is the reason why the prescribed function or so called celebration doesn’t occur on fixed English calendar date as your imagination. Please allow space to learn more about other peoples religions so that you equip yourself for a better position of solid constructive argument. Some of us we went to catholic Christian schools as Muslims we had no problem about learning and understanding Christianity.
