The Hijri calendar (sometimes referred to as the Islamic calendar) is a lunar calendar used in Islamic countries or by Muslim communities in non-Islamic countries.

The calendar type system was introduced in 2.6, so this will not work in any Moodle versions earlier than this.

    Hi Mohammad,
    You need to edit your profile and change your preferred calendar to Hijri.

    You can set the default calendar in "Site administration > Appearance > Calendar".

    Dear @Shamim,

    Thank you for the nice contribution. I wanted to know is there any plan to upgrade on Moodle version 3.5 and 3.6 ?

    We're facing dates issues even we used Algorithm A or Algorithm B, none of them compatible with mostly used Ummalqura calendar in some countries. It will be appreciable if you consider this on the next release! Thanks.

    Hi Azmat,
    The Hijri plugin is already compatible with 3.5 and 3.6. Updated the version numbers here to reflect that.
    Regarding the conversion algorithm, would you mind reporting that at providing as much details as possible.

    Thanks Shamim for the respond. I've provided more details and created an issue in github. Your early response in this regard would be highly appreciated.
