    1. إِنَّ عِدَّةَ الشُّهُورِ عِندَ اللَّـهِ اثْنَا عَشَرَ شَهْرًا فِي كِتَابِ اللَّـهِ يَوْمَ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ مِنْهَا أَرْبَعَةٌ حُرُمٌ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ ۚ فَلَا تَظْلِمُوا فِيهِنَّ أَنفُسَكُمْ ۚ وَقَاتِلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ كَافَّةً كَمَا يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ كَافَّةً ۚ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّـهَ مَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿٣٦

      QURAN 9:36
      Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred, (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar).

    2. PROPHET MUHAMMAD (ﷺ) said:
      Time has come back to its original state which it had when Allah created the heavens and the earth. The year is twelve months, four of which are sacred; three of them are in succession:
      1) Zul – Qaidah (11th Month),
      2) Zul - Hijjah (12th Month) and
      3) Al - Muharram (1st Month), and
      4) (the fourth being) Rajab Mudar (7th Month) which is between Jumada-ath-Thaniyah (6th Month) and Sha'ban (8th Month).

    1. Bilal bin Yahya bin Talhah bin `Ubaidullah narrated from his father, from his grandfather Talhah bin `Ubaidullah that when the Prophet (ﷺ) would see a crescent moon, he would say:

      اللَّهُمَّ أَهْلِلْهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْيُمْنِ وَالإِيمَانِ وَالسَّلاَمَةِ وَالإِسْلاَمِ رَبِّي وَرَبُّكَ اللَّهُ

      O Allah, bring it over us with blessing and faith, and security and Islam. My Lord and your Lord is Allah.
