Reason for prohibition of intercalation of months[edit]

Does anyone have a good explanation as to why this was forbidden by Mohammed? Was it to reduce the importance of the Kalammas?

Why would intercalation be necessary? There doesn't seem to be any particular reason for that.

Days of the week in Urdu?[edit]

The days of the week should just be listed in Arabic (without Urdu translations). As much as I love Urdu, this is an English language article about the Hijri calender, which is in Arabic. Urdu is not even the most common language spoken among Muslims, so better just leave that to the Urdu article (the Persian as well). The Persian days of the week could go in an article describing the Persian calendar system. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 08:59, 3 June 2009
