Year 1 AH[1] is the first year in Lunar Hijri calendar. This year was 13 lunar years after Bi'tha of the holy Prophet (s) (beginning of prophet's (s) mission) and 53 lunar years after 'Am al-Fil. Year 1 AH approximately started on Friday, July 16, 622 CE and ended on Monday, July 4, 623 CE[2].

In this year the Prophet Muhammad (s) and his followers migrated from Mecca to Yathrib which was later called Medinat al-Nabi (city of the Prophet). This migration led to foundation of the first Islamic community and later on was considered as the starting point of the Islamic calendar. The first mosque in Islam and also Masjid al-Nabi were built in this year.
