The Prophet, however, broke the link between months and seasons by forbidding intercalation, relying purely on the moon and beginning the month when the new moon had been observed in the night sky by reliable witnesses; as a result, the Muslim calendar consists of 12 lunar months without correction by the sun, so that 33 Muslim years correspond within a few days to 32 Western years. The months are called Muḥarram, Ṣafar, Rabī ‘al-’awwal, Rabī ‘ al- ’ākhir, Jumadā
