Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala Says
اِنَّ عِدَّۃَ الشُّھُوْرِ عِنْدَ اللّٰہِ اِثْنَا عَشَرَ شَھْرًا فِیْ کِتٰبِ اللّٰہِ یَوْمَ خَلَقَ السَّمَوٰتِ وَالْاَرْضَ مِنْھَآ اَرْبَعَۃُٗ حُرُمُٗ ط ذٰلِکَ اَلدَّیْنُ الْقَیُّم فَلاَ تَظْلِمُوْا فِیْھِنَّ اَنْفُسَکُمْ ہ(التوبہ36)

بے شک اللہ تعالیٰ کے نزدیک مہینوں کی تعداد کتاب اللہ میں بارہ ہے جس دن سے اس نے آسمانوں اور زمین کو پیدا کیا ۔ ان میں سے چار مہینے حرمت والے ہیں ۔ یہی صیح دین ہے ۔ چنانچہ ان مہینوں میں تم خود پر ظلم نہ کرو۔
