Muharram is the Muslim’s first lunar month in the Islamic calendar.

Governor Abdulrazaq spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye  in Ilorin on Friday noted via a statement that the first day of the Muharram 1446 falls on Sunday, July 7, 2024, according to many calculations.

The statement reads partly: “The Governor shares in the mixed memories that this occasion brings to the Muslims annually, and calls for deeper introspection on the journey of the community and its duty to be the light bearers for tolerance, mutual respect, and justice.”

The Governor wished the community a blessed new Hijrah year and prayed Allah to accord everyone its blessings and uphold the community upon goodness.
