When is the New Year celebration for Muslims?

I’m a little familiar with the Islamic calendar. It starts on September 24, 622AD, which marks Muhammad’s journey from Mecca to Medina. But when do Muslims celebrate New Years? And is the date different every year?

Response to comments:

– Thanks for the input. But when is the Muharram in respect to the Christian/Roman calendar? And what is the purpose and meaning of Ramadan?

    Muslims don’t celebrate New Year.. There is only two Huge Celebrations in Islam which is Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Dhoha..

    Other is 10th of Muharram .. which is the day on which ‘ Moses PBUH rescued Children of Israel from Pharoah.. its not Big.. Prophet Muhammad PBUH commanded us to fast on that day..

    Muharram is the first month in Islamic Calender..

    We dont really celebrate new years, it starts with Muharram as the first month of the Islamic calendar but it begins with tragedy since that month is when the grandson of the prophet and his family were killed and the remaining women and only son left was taken prisoner.

    Like the others said there is no “Muslim new years” celebration. I just want to add though that right now I am living in a Muslim country and the Dec 31 new Year’s is widely celebrated. It may not be part of the Muslim heritage, but modern Muslims definitely do partake in festivities.

    Oh, to answer your other question, Ramadan is about learning humbleness and gratefulness for what God has blessed you with, which is highlighted by fasting until sunset.
