Awal Muharram and Sarawak Day are both significant celebrations in Malaysia, and this year, they fall in the same week, with Awal Muharram on 19th July and Sarawak Day on 22nd July.
Awal Muharram marks the beginning of the Islamic New Year, and it holds great importance for Muslims worldwide. It commemorates the migration of Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina, known as the Hijrah. Muslims observe this day through prayers, reflections, and fasting, reflecting on the values of sacrifice, unity, and renewal.
On the other hand, Sarawak Day is a public holiday specific to Sarawak, one of the states in Malaysia. It commemorates the day when Sarawak gained self-governance on 22nd July 1963. This celebration highlights the state's rich cultural heritage, diverse communities, and progress.
