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
The salaat times appear on the calendar on every Juma'a, and include the times of
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.
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.
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.
Daylight savings time is taken into account, where applicable.
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).
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.
