The important year is the year of immigration (Hijra) of prophet Muhammad from Mecca (Makkah) to Medina per God command and when told by God that the unbelievers in Mecca are plotting to assassinate him. This was the year 632 AD. The immigration or Hijra year marked the starting of the Islamic Lunar Calendar or Hijra Calendar for its importance.
