Islamic Calendars for the USA
moon phase

Asalaamu Alaikum and welcome. This page hosts ready-to-print Islamic calendars for most major metropolitan areas within the United States. Please choose a calendar based on the city that is closest to you. If you come across any problems in the calendars, or if you have any suggestions for improvement, do not hesitate to contact me and I will try to accommodate your request. For details on printing, see the section below on printing tips. Finally, if you represent a masjid or other Islamic organization, and you plan on using these calendars for distributing to your members, please let me know as I am compiling a list of those who found these calendars useful.

Features of the Calendar

  1. The salaat times appear on the calendar on every Juma'a, and include the times of sunrise.
  2. Major dates on the Islamic calendar are included, but the Eid and Hajj dates are purposely omitted because it is impossible to accurately determine them in advance.
  3. Although the calendar is organized according to the Gregorian calendar, the Islamic months are also included, in Arabic, in the headings, and the Islamic days of the month are also included.
  4. The Islamic civil calendar is used to calculate the beginnings and endings of the Islamic months. The civil calendar is easy to calculate in advance, but may differ from actually moon sightings by as much as three days.
  5. Daylight savings time is taken into account, where applicable.
  6. The four major phases of the moon: new, first quarter, full, and last quarter, are graphically depicted. Also, the solstices and equinoxes are marked on the calendar. However, note that the dates are given for coordinated universal time (UTC).

Printing Tips

The calendar is distributed in postscript and portable document format. Postscript is a format that is directly understood by most high-end printers today. One of the most popular viewers for postscript is the free Ghostview tool. It is available for a variety of platforms.

Adobe's portable document format (PDF) is an open, standards-based document format meant to provide high-fidelity document rendering on a variety of platforms. Adobe maintains the free Acrobat Reader for a variety of platforms.

In my experience, when printing, postscript provides better quality. However, PDF is somewhat more "user-friendly" for less technical individuals.
