Jumādā th-thāniya

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jumādā th-thāniya ( Arabic جمادى الثانية, DMG Ǧumādā ṯ-ṯāniya ), Jumādā l-āchira (جمادى الآخرة, DMG Ǧumādā l-āḫira ) or Dschumada l-uchra (جمادى الأخرى, DMG Ǧumādā l-uḫrā ), also short Jumādā II. (Also the male forms Jumādā th-thanī  /جمادى الثاني / Ǧumādā ṯ-ṯānī and Jumādā l-āchir  /جمادى الآخر / Ǧumādā l-āḫir are used), is the sixth month of the Islamic calendar .


In Jumādā th-thāniya there is no official holiday that is valid for all Muslims. The Sufi saint Syed Shahul Hamid Qadir Vali, who is buried there, is commemorated on the ninth day of the month in the southern Indian city of Nagore . Some believers celebrate the birthday of Fātima bint Muhammad on the 20th day of the month .

For some, the first and eleventh days of the month are considered negative days.
