AMWF Enlists Attorneys, Law Students, and Legal Secretaries and Paralegals to Provide Pro Bono legal Assistance to Homeless, Needy Individuals

FROM: Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation, Abdul-Jalil al-Hakim
DATE: December 6, 2023
RE: AMWF Human Civil Rights Committee (HCRC) IMMEDIATELY Needs Legal Observers, Attorney Representation for UNHOUSED in Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) Housing Authority Discrimination, Housing Choice Voucher Discrimination Complaints, Housing Authority and Landlord Inspection Discrimination, Auto and Renters Insurance Discrimination and Bad Faith.

AMWF Enlists Attorneys, law students, and law firm secretaries and paralegals to provide pro bono legal assistance to Homeless individuals!

“As lawyers, we have an obligation to use the special skills we’ve been given to give back to the community and minimize homelessness as best we can.”
Judge Jay Zainey

Dear Counselor,

The Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation originated the Human Civil Rights Committee (HCRC) that enlists Attorneys, law students, and law firm secretaries and paralegals throughout Northern California to provide pro bono legal assistance to Unhoused and Recently Unhoused/Homeless individuals.

This assistance often takes the form of a single consultation but occasionally extends further, depending on the clients’ needs.

Among other things, the Law establishes standards for service providers and sets forth the responsibilities and rights, including due process protections, of the community members who participate in the covered programs. Anyone who is either homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, has temporary housing/in a shelter, or was recently placed in housing who STILL needs legal assistance.

The HCRC Legal Clinic envisions a just and inclusive community for all residents of throughout Northern California, where housing is a human right and where every individual and family has equal access to the resources they need to thrive.

The AMWF/HCRC’s Legal Clinic with the support of volunteer attorneys, law firms, corporate legal departments, law students, paralegals, law firm secretaries and other legal services entities partners with service and shelter providers and matches pro bono attorneys to provide advice, advocacy, and representation to those MOST IN NEED on a wide range of matters and issues related to immigration, bankruptcy, end of life planning, veterans disability, homelessness, micro-entrepreneurship, homeownership preservation, the receipt of public benefits and other legal challenges to bring needed legal services to people living in unhoused conditions or shelters that those struggling with poverty face.

We partner with religious organizations, service organizations, shelters, and outreach organizations that provide other services to the homeless population where our volunteers meet with their clients at shelters and those other social service organizations that are accessible to the unhoused/homeless population.

More than 50,000 people, including over 15,000 children, sleep in the counties homeless shelters each night. Of those experiencing homelessness, the overwhelming majority come from communities historically deprived of equal access to stable housing and employment due to structural racism.

These historic socioeconomic factors, combined with today’s high cost of housing, food, transportation, clothing, Wi-Fi, cell service, and other necessities create barriers for individuals residing in shelters to achieve stability and independence. AMWF/HCRC primarily assists families experiencing homelessness and those who have exited shelter to secure state and federal public benefits that are vital tools in poverty prevention and alleviation. AMWF/HCRC advocates also contest denials of Cash Assistance and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, and shelter, public housing, and rental assistance supplements. AMWF/HCRC aims to help families in shelter and those who have left shelter on the road to economic and housing stability.

Our mission is to use the law to make justice a reality for our neighbors who struggle with homelessness and poverty. Combining community lawyering and advocacy to achieve our clients’ goals, our expert staff and network of volunteer attorneys provide low barrier, comprehensive legal services at intake sites throughout Northern California, helping our clients to access housing, shelter, and life-saving services. Rooted in the experiences of this client work, we effectively blend system reform efforts, policy advocacy, community education and client engagement to advocate for long term improvements in local and federal programs that serve the low- and no-income community.

Working with religious organizations, service organizations, and local shelters, AMWF/HRCR will establish a regularly scheduled clinic to offer free legal services to homeless individuals, provided by volunteer attorneys from firms around the city. Our clients often have many of the same types of legal issues that any other individual might encounter, but they lack access to the justice system simply because they have no attorney to advocate for them.

In many cases, the problem that is preventing the individual from applying for a job, seeking benefits to which he or she is entitled, or obtaining housing is something that a lawyer is able to resolve in a matter of hours, or by making a few simple telephone calls. Other cases are more complicated and require follow up representation, but in most instances the individual’s legal problem is resolved, and what had been a major obstacle in their lives is no longer a problem.

In addition to legal representation, HRCR involves law students, paralegals, and law firm secretaries who volunteer their time, skills, and services to assist the homeless. Law students assist clients in applying for social security or veteran’s benefits by helping them to complete the application forms, obtaining required medical records and other documents, and accompanying clients to the agency office to complete the process. Paralegals and secretaries not only assist the volunteer attorneys, but also provide notary services to certify copies of driver licenses, identification cards, and other important documents.

In cities throughout the country, there are amazing organizations dedicated to helping the homeless every single day. They provide shelter and food, of course, but they also provide so much more: job training and placement services, clothing, counseling, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, transportation to work or school, schooling and child care. They provide a lifeline of security in a harsh and often unfriendly world. The individuals who operate these organizations are not just administrators. They are friends, counselors, parents, protectors and encouragers. AMWF/HRCR salutes their selfless dedication, and is grateful for their partnership with us.

Issues AMWF/HRCR Addresses

• Identification documents
AMWF/HCRC’s Legal Clinic began its outreach by helping homeless individuals maintain valid identification documents. Because identification is essential for the homeless to access services like shelters and non-emergency hospital care, this service continues to be an important part of the assistance that AMWF/HCRC’s Legal Clinic volunteers provide.

Homeless individuals’ identification documents are often stolen, lost, or taken by the police during an arrest, and many have trouble navigating document replacement processes that can take up to 30 days. Working with AMWF/HCRC’s Legal Clinic volunteers speeds up the process dramatically, allowing these individuals to utilize important social services. Certified copies of their identification documents are maintained at the shelter so that if the original is lost, a certified copy is readily available.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s ZOA Energy launches NIL campaign headlined by Angel Reese, Marvin Harrison Jr.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was not able to profit off his NILrights as a defensive tackle at Miami in the 1990s.

Things have significantly changed since then. The former professional wrestler is now one of the most recognized and highest-paid actors in Hollywood. An owner of the XFL, he has his own Under Armour line.

The Rock also has his own energy drink, ZOA, which has entered the NIL world in a very big way. An annual program dubbed, “The Rock’s Warriors,” has signed NIL deals with seven college athletes. Georgia‘s Brock Bowers, Austin Peay‘s Hansel Enmanuel, Florida A&M‘s Amaya Gainer, Ohio State‘s Marvin Harrison Jr., Miami’s Kamren Kinchens, North Carolina‘s Drake Maye and LSU‘s Angel Reese have all inked endorsement deals with the brand.

Each athlete was selected by The Rock. Everett Sports Management‘s Rachel Everett, Dan Everett and Jeff Hoffmancreated and procured the NIL campaign.

“Through this first-of-its-kind NIL expansion program, ZOA Energy will bring together some of the greatest college athletes of our time,” The Rock said in a statement. “I know from experience the grit and hard work that’s required of these college athletes to get the job done. Not just during their championship games or in the classrooms, but every day in the game of life. ZOA gives people that power, that unique energy to fuel themselves and fuel others around them – that’s why I’m super pumped about uniting all of The Rock’s Warriors under one roof.

“I personally selected these phenomenal individuals because of the energy, tenacity, and excitement they bring to the game. With a diverse set of stories and experiences, they’re driven, hungry, talented and ready for ZOA to help fuel them to greatness.”

Details of ZOA NIL campaign

As part of the agreements, the athletes will lead an upcoming marketing campaign for the energy drink and will release content across their social media platforms. “The Rock’s Warriors” will support national and regional partnerships through the deal.

“NIL is a brave new world,” ESM’s Dan Everett told On3. “Working alongside disruptive and multifaceted brands can be a catalyst for groundbreaking work. For ESM Sports, procuring the right talent to accelerate awareness and consideration for ZOA was the goal. Combining seven of college athletic’s biggest names with the stardom of The Rock is the single most defining moment in NIL history.”

ZOA pieced together a loaded class of NIL talent. Reese has seen her national profile soar following LSU’s national title, adding 3.6 million social media followers and signing NIL deals with brands like PlayStation and Starry.

“I’m pumped to be a part of such a unique group of athletes, and who better than The Rock to bring us together for a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” Reese said. “ZOA is all about putting in the work, learning from your wins and losses, and empowering others, something I strive to do every day on and off the court, so it was a no-brainer to join the first class of The Rock’s Warriors.”

Harrison had 77 catches for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2022. He’s started to take advantage of his marketability, recently launching a memorabilia website and signing with Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet. Maye has become one of college football’s most marketable names since last season. The quarterback wrapped up his rookie campaign throwing for 4,321 yards with 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. Touting a 66.2% completion percentage, he led the Tar Heels to an ACC title game appearance.

An Everett Sports Management client, Bowers has played a significant role in helping Georgia win the last two national title games. Name to the first-team All-SEC, first-team All-American and the John Mackey Award winner, he turned down deals from Georgia’s Classic City Collective this winter. Instead, he’s inked partnerships with companies like NOBULL and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Dominican Republic native and one-handed basketball sensation Hansel Enmanuel received approval for an O-1 visa in October, which gives him the ability to pursue NIL deals in the U.S. through his newfound work authorization. He has agreed to deals with adidas and Gatorade.

A safety, Kinchens has a $474,000 On3 NIL Valuation. A first-team All-America last season, he led the Hurricanes with 59 total tackles along with six interceptions, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.

“It is the maturation of commercial NIL. ESM’s ability to create, navigate and bring together these amazing NIL athletes for ZOA cannot be overstated,” Hoffman told On3. “Equally as impressive is the ZOA team’s ability to be brave, nimble and creative in the execution of such a tremendous activation. The Rock’s Warriors is how high-profile, real NIL (commercial NIL) is done right.”

Dreams Money Can Buy: LSU’s NIL-powered Superteam is exactly what college sports needs

The Bayou’s budding Superteam is great for college sports.
XAVIER HANDY-HAMILTON
From a fairness standpoint, the NIL era has been beautiful for the college athlete. No longer do they have to sacrifice their bodies with little to nothing in return other than the expectation for them to be grateful because they now have a “free” education.From an entertainment standpoint, the influx of NIL contracts has led to an inflation in “stardom.” When a lineman at a mid-major can have his agent negotiate a burrito deal for him, it becomes hard to decipher who the real stars are. If a program inks a player to a 6 figure-plus deal, it’s in the school’s interest to push them to the forefront despite their true impact on winning.

Ironically, the clarity college sports is seeking can be found in the muddy waters of the Mississippi.

The legend of Angel Reese is just getting started. Fresh off LSU’s national championship win and her boastful post-game actions, the budding star has quickly become a hot commodity in the NIL world.
Angel Reese

Kim Mulkey and the LSU Tigers have conducted a crash-course in how to effectively utilize NIL money. Instead of using the cash to boost players with potential, hoping they pan out, Mulkey and the Tigers have operated the last two offseasons like a professional front office. To build 2023’s National Championship team, they grabbed a proven star in Angel Reese from Maryland and surrounded her with experienced role players out of the portal, some of whom played for Mulkey’s Baylor teams or were recruited by her in high school.

Reese’s polarizing personality — at its brightest in the runaway National Championship win over Iowa and Caitlyn Clark — and capable skills on the court pushed her past the pack of college players who have been tagged with the “star” label into a lane of her own now. And while the majority of collegiate impact players are leagues behind their professional counterparts when it comes to notoriety, it can be argued that the “Bayou Barbie” is now the biggest name in all of women’s basketball. That’s real superstardom.

The story could end here (don’t worry, it doesn’t). With a true star like Reese returning and a bubbling second option in Flau’jae “Big 4” Johnson, Mulkey’s Tigers looked poised to once again compete with South Carolina, Iowa and the top of women’s basketball for another National Championship.

Yet, like any good professional general manager, Mulkey didn’t waste an opportunity to get better just because she had stable pieces.

Instead, Mulkey hitched up the F-150, backed her boat into the banks of the Transfer Portal and went fishing. Unlike last year, she wasn’t just looking for role pieces that complement her star forward. This time, she was looking to reel in the big catfish. The ones that break records, not just supply a fry. And, boy did her catch tip the scales this offseason.

LSU walked away from the portal with commitments from Louisville’s top guard Hailey Van Lith — who 247Sports’ expert contributor Brandon Clay had pegged as the No. 2 player in the women basketball transfer portal. The Tigers didn’t stop there. They also hauled in Clay’s No. 1 player in the portal, DePaul forward Aneesah Morrow.

This gives LSU a potential starting line up that contains Van Lith, Big 4, Morrow and the Bayou Barbie. For fans who don’t get how pivotal this is, it’s basically the equivalent of a Cash Money Hot Boys track. No matter where you turn, there’s either an experienced spitter waiting in the wings or a young, hungry rapper on the attack. The beat (or opposing defense in this case) has no chance to relax.

The Bayou’s budding superteam is great for college sports in general. Not only does it bring light to women’s sports, but each member of this quartet brings a unique approach to the game that any fan can get behind.

Van Lith is a Kobe disciple. She trained with the Mamba in high school and it shows with her explosive offensive game and aggressive scoring. She embraces all the things fans loved about Bean, but this also comes with an attitude that can rub some of the “basketball purists” the wrong way.

Now, if you’re into a do-it-all, “blue collar” star, then look no further than All-American Aneesah Morrow. The DePaul standout averaged 25.7 points and 12.2 rebounds per game last season with an outstanding usage rate. She’s able to initiate the offense while also doing the dirty work.

As for Big 4 (Flau’jae “Big 4” Johnson, if you forgot): her development and production will be a bit of a question mark given that she’ll have to defer the ball to more experienced players. But what isn’t unknown is her ability to find a spark. She’s shown countless times during LSU’s title run that she’s capable of getting hot in a hurry. This will put stress on opposing defenses as they try to limit Van Lith, Morrow and Reese just to get torched by Johnson. It will also continue to make her a fan-favorite as her dagger shots will likely come in high demand.

Angel Reese speaks for herself. Like Morrow, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to win but has the boisterous personality that will intrigue fans who are into the style points (I’m part of this demographic, myself). Similar to Van Lith, Reese doesn’t back down from a chance to challenge the moment, so it’s hard to say that her on-court personality isn’t warranted.

Outside of their on-court production, the fact that nothing seemed forced or constructed will make LSU’s pending superteam a crossover hit. They aren’t painting disses to their opponents on their fingernails or turning their name into condiments. They’re genuinely themselves at all times and refuse to step outside of their personalities. It just so happens that their natural personas seem to balance each other and that realness resonates with fans.

As tenacious as Van Lith comes off, it still doesn’t seem like a “tough guy (or girl)” act. As for Reese, she didn’t just put on this personality once she started winning at LSU. That’s just the first time you guys started paying attention to her. But if you cared to do research, you can find videos of her at Saint Frances Academy in Baltimore antagonizing and dominating her opponents the same way she did during the title game.

Although Morrow’s hard work, no-nonsense approach to the game balances the scale that’s leaning Reese and Van Lith’s way, it isn’t fake humility. She built herself into one of the best players in the game at DePaul without the glitz and glamor of a major program. DePaul head coach Doug Bruno details how Morrow sets goals for herself before every game only to shatter them during the contest.

“Aneesah talks about goals,” Bruno said. “She’s got individual goals for every game and individual goals for the season. She’s got individual goals for when she graduates from DePaul. But to reach those goals, she has to keep getting better.”

It’s hard to hate on someone who leaves no stone unturned when perfecting their craft, even though they’re already near the top. This only further proves to spectators that she deserves the NIL boost and to finally take her spot on the big stage.

For Johnson, she’s not an athlete with an affinity for rapping who releases cringe-worthy freestyles just because they have access to a professional studio. No. She’s a real recording artist who has a distribution deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation record label. Johnson dedicates time to her craft in the booth and on the court with aspirations of starting her own record label in the future. As a result, it’s easy to accept her raps as part of her personality. Fans can get behind her “Big 4” persona because they know it’s naturally her and not something she’s doing as a gimmick.

This collective of real stars will do wonders for college sports, but it will definitely spell out trouble for the WNBA. Reese, the hottest name in the sport, has said on several occasions that she doesn’t even think about going pro. And why would she?

While the world has been belting out the opening line of NBA YoungBoy’s “Fresh Prince of Utah,” Reese really did bring a parade to the rapper’s hometown where she’s treated (and compensated) like a superstar, making over $1 million in NIL money. She’s going to grace Sports Illustrated’s “Swimsuit Edition”, flies in chartered jets to LSU away games with her teammates, frequently goes on elaborate shopping sprees that she documents on social media and just bought herself a new Mercedes. What more could a 21-year-old want?

In comparison, A’ja Wilson (two-time WNBA MVP, a WNBA Defensive Player of the Year and a WNBA champion) is set to make $202,115 in the 2023-24 season. Candace Parker, a sure-fire, first ballot Hall of Fame player, told the media that her decision to team up with Wilson on the Aces was partly fueled by the team’s new facilities. Parker explained that at no point in her illustrious career did she have a locker to call her own until Las Vegas built its new arena.

That puts Reese in the rare space where her personal brand would be taking a step back if she chooses to go pro. The same can be said for Van Lith, who is reportedly making over $500,000 in NIL and Johnson, who is set to pocket a little under $1 million herself this year. The WNBA will need to scramble to find ways to bridge the pay gap between its salaries and NIL if it wants to compete for these real college superstars and the future players who will undoubtedly follow their financial footprints.

Fortunately for the WNBA (and college sports fans), Reese and Van Lith don’t have to cross that bridge for at least another year. Because right now, Mulkey and Co. are solely focused on actualizing the potential of this superteam by bringing home another banner to the Bayou.

LSU’s Angel Reese Dominating NIL Space, Agrees to Deal With SI Swimsuit
Reese has become one of the most marketable athletes, signs another noteworthy deal.

All-American forward Angel Reese continues maximizing her opportunities in the NIL space after entering an agreement to be featured in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. The LSU star will be accompanied by fellow Tiger Livvy Dunne as the only two college athletes in the magazine.

“Angel entered into a standard agreement with SI Swimsuit to appear in print and digital editorial media for the publication and to attend the launch event,” Sports Illustrated tells LSU Country.

The edition of the magazine will be released on May 12th with both Reese and Dunne being the first college athletes to ever be featured.

“We’ve done so much within a year,” Reese told SI. “We weren’t even supposed to be in the Final Four. We had nine new players, and it was coach [Kim Mulkey]’s second year in the SEC, so we didn’t know what to expect. We just went out there and had fun all the time and put in a lot of work all season.”

LSU has dominated the NIL space over the last year. From Reese to Dunne to other student athletes adding monstrous deals, it’s clear the university is ahead of the curve in this new era of college athletics.

After Reese made the move from Maryland to LSU, her status continued to skyrocket. With sheer dominance on the court, averaging a cool 23 points and 15 rebounds a game, her status off the floor became much more marketable.

The superstar forward led the Tigers to their first national title in program history, and after the championship game, it’s been nonstop for Reese. She’s been featured on Good Morning America, signed a deal with Mercedes Benz, Coach and much more as her NIL valuation reaches the $1.4 million mark via On3’s system.

Reese has the chance to keep the momentum rolling as she goes through the offseason before the 2023-24 season. Despite being eligible for the 2024 WNBA Draft, Reese has stated she’s “in no rush” to leave college. Time will tell, but for now, Reese is living in the moment as she transforms women’s basketball.

On September 19, 2022, Belal Salih Esa was one of two gunshot victims at 31st Street and Telegraph Avenue about 7:45 p.m. that night, inside Layalina, a Middle-Eastern pizza restaurant that died on the scene right around the corner from a mosque where they had been praying just 45 minutes beforehand. The Oakland Islamic Center is around the corner from the shooting scene where the men had been attending their evening prayers at around sundown or 7 p.m.

Surveillance video from the store and restaurant that were involved, shows a white vehicle, possibly a Prius, pulling up and someone started shooting into the store and restaurant. Police are reviewing that footage, but did not confirm any suspect vehicle information.

Belal was on the Board of Directors of the Oakland Islamic Center and his family operated several businesses and performed Charity with the Aaron & Margaret Wallace Foundation (AMWF) Jumaah Free Farmers Markets in the African and Middle Eastern Muslim communities and at several Eat Bay Masajids on Jumaah Friday Kuthbah. Belal, Ethiopian by birth, worked tirelessly to better the African and Muslim communities in the Bay Area, where he singularly fed thousands in 9 Free Food Ministries each week with our AMWF Free Food Program, AHDL!

He is survived by his wife Mimi, sons Dawude- graduated from U. C. Berkeley with a triple major, Omar- also graduated from U. C. Berkeley, Salih- 15 year old entrepreneur at the top of his class entering high school, and daughter Rewda- the smartest of them all!

    We learned that many things we thought we knew, we simply did NOT!
    We learned that vaccinations are many things we thought, BUT simply NOT a CURE!
    As a front line “essential worker”, we saw FIRST HAND, the consequences of ALL the actions and inactions taken, the many things that were done that should NOT have been done, AND, the many things that were NOT done that should have been done!

date.

Islamic New Year 2023: Significance, Traditions, and Important Dates
July 17, 2023 7646 Views
islamic-new-year
As the sun sets on the last day of Dhu al-Hijah, the tranquil moonlight of the Islamic new year enlightens the whole world with the sacred message of Allah. The Islamic new year is observed to mark the migration of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) from Makkah to Madinah in 622 AD. The journey later came to be known as Hijra and the new year is called Hijri. Although the beginning of the year is auspicious for Muslims all around the world, it is also a time of mourning and remembrance of Imam Hussein’s sacrifice.

Islamic new year 2023 dates
According to the Gregorian calendar, the new year will be celebrated on the evening of the 19th of July 2023. Muslims all around the world will observe the 1st of Muharram 1445 AH with the individual traditions of their countries.

Significance of Islamic new year
As mentioned before, the new year is celebrated to mark the journey of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) from Makkah to Madinah. Additionally, it is important among the Muslim community, as on the day the first Islamic state was established. The day helps Muslims to understand more about their origin and how the community was consolidated as one. The new year brings in the opportunity to become spiritual and get closer to Allah, the Almighty.

Islamic new year celebrations and traditions
islamic-new-year-traditions

The Islamic new year traditions can vary from culture to culture and country to country. However, the core of every tradition remains the same.

1. Fasting and offering prayers

Fasting is one of the top ways to gain respect in the eyes of Allah. It is also among the five pillars of Islam. Therefore, it is best to start your year by fasting and repenting for your sins. Muslims can also offer prayers and read verses from the Holy Quran for added benefits.

2. Spiritual renewal

The new year presents a gift of showing remorse for past deeds and seeking forgiveness from the almighty Allah. Muslims can indulge in activities such as spiritual reflections and self-realization. The time is appropriate to devote oneself to Allah and increase the act of worship.

3. Setting aspirations and goals

Though getting the blessings of Allah almighty should be the ultimate goal, Muslims can strive towards personal and spiritual growth. Additionally, they should promote love over hatred and ensure to build positive relationships. Muslims should focus on self-improvement and set achievable yet high goals for themselves.

4. Remembrance of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

The Islamic New Year provides a great opportunity to remember and honor the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Muslims can reflect on the meaning of the journey taken by the prophet. They can take inspiration from the resilience and perseverance shown by the prophet. Additionally, Muslims can use the occasion to spread the words from the Quran and promote brotherhood.

5. Commemorating Imam Hussein

The first month of the Islamic new year is Muharram. It is one of the four sacred months in Islam. The month also entails the date when Imam Hussein was martyred at the Battle of Karbala. The time can be utilized to reflect and remember Imam Hussein’s sacrifice. Many Muslims also mourn on the 10th of Muharram known as the day of Ashura to seek forgiveness from Allah.

6. Unity and community

With the opportunity to gain the blessings of Allah, one should make sure to celebrate the year with families and friends. Muslims can also engage in charity and can provide meals for the needy. Muslims can also strengthen the bond in the community and share happiness with others.

Islamic Lunar Calendar
Unlike the Gregorian Calendar which works on the rotation and revolution of the earth and is solar, the Islamic calendar works on the cycles of the moon. The Muslim calendar has 12 lunar months starting with the sighting of the new moon. The dates of the events can be different for different regions of the world. Islamic new year begins with the month of Muharram and ends with Dhu Al-Hijah. The year is 10-11 days shorter than the Gregorian year.

Important events in lunar new year 2023

3. Laylat al-Miraj (27th Rajab)

Rajab is among the four sacred months in Islam. It is also the month in which Prophet Muhammad ascended to the heavens after his journey from Makkah to Jerusalem. The miraculous night is known as Lyalat Al Miraj or Isra Miraj and can be used to reflect on past deeds.

Considered as the holiest month in Islam, Muslims observe fasting from dawn to dusk. They practice self-discipline and increased devotion during the month. They also focus on charity and donate Zakat as an obligatory act in the month.
