Calendar and Dates of Islamic Holidays

The Holy Quran
The Holy Quran (Al Hussainy Mohamed / CC-by)

Islam is a religion founded in the 7th century by Muhammad1. Practitioners strive to follow the five pillars established in the Qur'an1. While it is largely unclear when Islam first arrived in the country, there are approximately 3.3 million Muslims currently living in the United States2. This accounts for only 1% of the population3. The US includes one of the most diverse Islamic populations worldwide4. Because of the large amounts of immigration from around the world, there are many various Muslim communities from different countries and schools of thought4. For the most part, they are fully integrated, middle-class citizens5. However, the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001 by Islamic terrorist group Al-Qaeda has caused a shift in the political landscape with special attention toward Muslim groups5. For the most part, Muslims remain a small yet important group in the US5.

Muslims celebrate Islamic holidays in the US in the same way as they are observed throughout the world6. There is two official, major holidays and a few other holy days7. The significance of each holy day varies between individuals, families, and communities8. Besides Christmas, there are no public religious holidays, but there has been a push in recent years for public school systems to recognize Muslim holidays as they would with Catholic or Jewish holidays8.
