At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Allah Pak Dictates in Qur’an Shareef, “Follow not the kafir, mushriks and the jews and christians”. Further, it has come in Hadis Shareef, “Whosoever keeps in touch certain community shall be deemed as one of that community”. That’s is why, Saniy-e-Mujaddidu A’azwam, Saiyidul Khulafa, Khwalifatul Umam, Ha’drat Shahzada Huzur Qibla ‘Alaihis Salaam, the most deserving descendant of Imamuz-Zaman and Mujtahiduz-Zaman, Imaamul-Aimmah, Muh-yus-Sunnah, Qutwubul ‘A’alam, Mujaddidu A’azwam, Ghausul A’azwam, Habeebullah, Saiyiduna Imam of Rajarbagh Shareef, Dhaka composed this Taqweem (methods of counting days) with His virtuous supplication and patronizations and through the intent relationship with Allah Pak and Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam. This gives ways not to follow the gregorian calendar of the kafir but follow the Qur’an Shareef and Hadis Shareef completely.
Gregorian calendar: European Christians used to celebrate the Easters on 21 March, the day on which the length of day and night remains equal. But it was experienced that if they followed Julian calendar, the date falls on 12 March. So for the convenience of celebrating this Easter day, they introduced the Gregorian calendar in place of a Julian calendar. To the kaafirs, Easter day is that day when they think that Ha’drat Isa ‘Alaihis Salaam was back on earth three days after being crucified. Na’oozubillah!
2. Introduction and Naming:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: This method of counting the ‘solar year’ and its naming ‘At-Taqweemush Shamsi’ have been accomplished by Khwalifatulllah, Khwalifatu Rwasoolillah, Khwalifatul Umam, Ha’drat Shahzada Huzur Qibla ‘Alaihis Salaam.
Gregorian calendar: This was named after the christian pope Gregory, who was characterless and had a child beyond nuptial ties.
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: This calendar has been developed not by following any worldly calendars or systems but absolutely by the Guidance of Allah Pak and through Ilham and Ilka.
Gregorian calendar: This was originated from the calendars of the superstitious Romans.
4. The Time of Beginning:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: The year of the Bisaal Shareef (Return to Allah Pak) of Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallalahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam, the 11th Hijri year and the sacred 12th of Rabiul Auwal Shareef of that year has been chosen as the 0 year, 1st month and 1st day. (8 June according to julian and 11 June as per gregorian).
Gregorian calendar: A gregorian calendar was developed by amending a julian one. The last day of the julian calendar was 4th October 1582, Thursday and by adjusting 10 days, the first day of gregorian calendar is being counted from 15 October 1582, Friday.
5. Significance of the Beginning Time:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam received His Bisaal Shareef on a Monday. Therefore, this Shamsi Taqweem (calendar) began from that year of the Bisaal Shareef of Huzur Pak Swallalahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam. The 12th day of the first year of this Mubarwak Taqweem is the 12th of Rabiul Auwal Shareef, Monday.
Gregorian calendar: There is no significance of the beginning of the gregorian calendar rather the root of a gregorian calendar is a Roman calendar. That says from a Roman calendar comes a julian and from julian, one gregorian. This Roman calendar was full of superstitions. They used to consider the even numbers as un-auspicious for which they counted moths in either 29 or 31 days. There were no months in 30 days. Only February was an exception which was counted in 28 days. The current gregorian is still not free from that 28.
6. The Naming of the Months
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Months in this Taqweem have been named after Arabic systems. Fr example, the ‘first’ in Arabic is called ‘Auwal’. Similarly, names of the months from the first till the 12th have been named as Auwal, Sani, Salis, Robi, Khwamis, Sadis, Sabi’, Sameen, Tasi, A’shir, Hadi A’shir and Sani A’shir.
Gregorian calendar: 5 of the months of this calendar have been named after the names of their gods and goddesses. Five names have been take from Roman words and two others after the names of two Roman emperors.
7. Naming of the Days:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Days have been named as the days of an Arabic month (week), like Isnainil A’azwimi (Monday), Sulasaayi (Tuesday), Arbiaayi (Wednesday), Khwamisi (Thursday), Jum’uati (Friday), Sabti (Saturday) and Ahadi (Sunday).
Gregorian calendar: The Romans made links of stars with the gods this way:
Sunday – Day of god; Monday – Moon’s day (after the goddess of moon). Tuesday – after the name the god Tyr. Wednesday – From the name of the god Mercury. Thursday – After the name of the god Thor. Friday – From the name of the goddess Frigg. Saturday – In honour of the planet Saturn.
Muslims are never supposed to have names of the days after planets, stars or gods and goddesses like this.
8. System of Counting the Months:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Every odd month is in 30 days and every even month is in 31 days; only exception would be the 12th month. But in a lip year (to be divisible by 4), it would be 31 days. In every 128 years, one lip year would be discarded.
Gregorian calendar: All months except February, April, June, September and November are in 31 days while April, June, September and November are in 30 days but February is in 28 days. Only during lip year, they are in 29ays. In every 100 years, one lip year shall not be counted while in every 400 years, one extra lip year shall be added.
9. The Annual Deviations:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Less than even 0.2 seconds.
Gregorian calendar: About 27 seconds.
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Lip year being on the last day of the year, changes are not noticeable.
Gregorian calendar: February is in 28 days while during lip year, it is in 29 days. Having lip year in the 2nd moth of the year, all the following 10 months are lagged by one day each.
11. The Outcome of Following:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Following this Taqweem, Muslims do not have to follow the rules of the kaafirs but every time, remembrance of Allah Pak and Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam is done for which Muslims would be gifted with blessings, prosperity and peace.
Gregorian calendar: Following a kaafirs-made calendar would only make remembrance of the kaafirs which is harwaam for the Muslims and one must abandon the use of it. No well-being lies in its use but hassles only.
12. The Superiority of the Muslims:
At-Taqweemush Shamsi: Kaafirs would follow the Muslims for they have been created to serve the Muslims. After the introduction of this Shamsi Taqweem (Solar calendar), if its circulations are wider then gradually the kaafirs would start following that; Muslims would deem superior with enhanced aristocracy.
Gregorian calendar: Muslims would get rid of the evil affects of following the kaafirs while they would find the faults with their gregorian calendars and would suffer from inferiority complexes.
