According to Muslim tradition, the Hijra begins on this date. Muhammad and his small band of followers migrate to the town of Yathrib in the north. The leaders of that town invited him to come and lead them and were willing to adopt Islam.

The Hijrah of 622, the migration, marks the beginning of the Muslim era and the Islamic calendar.
