Asalamu Alykum. Well, the Islamic calendar is lunar so the months shift from year to year when compared to the solar Gregorian calendar of the western world. However, this year it's apparently Muharram that begins in November. Muharram is the first month on the Islamic calendar. It is also the second most sacred month, with Ramadan being the most sacred.
