Abstract
This article discusses the concept of the global Islamic calendar, precisely the concept put forward by Jamaluddin ‘Abd ar-Raziq, for which he offers a calendar named “at-Taqwim al-Qamary al-Islamy al-Muwahhad.” He presented the fiqh side carefully and examined the validity requirements that must be fulfilled by each calendar that would be integrated with the Islamic calendar, which he has been working with the Astronomy Association of Morocco for more than ten years. The making of an integrated lunar calendar has enormous importance. The significance lies in the fact that such a calendar can unite Muslims throughout the world regarding the lunar months in general and months of worship in particular. This calendar must be based on the basics of sharia and true science to realize the objectives of Islamic law (maqasid asy-syariah al-Islamiyyah). The methodology of this research is the study of figures, which is one type of qualitative research and the analysis of Islamic calendar concept studies. The article concludes that the global Islamic calendar is an urgent need for Muslims today.
