In the first half of the second year of the Hijra the breach between them was complete.
The two sects founded by Sur and Zahar became extinct in the eighth century of the Hijra.
The earliest reference to Omar Khayyam dates from the middle of the seventh century of the Hijra.
But towards the close of the second century of the Hijra, this earlier mysticism developed into Sfism.
In the second year of the Hijra, or flight from Mecca, it was ordained that the month of Ramazn should be kept as a fast.
After the third century of the Hijra, the Cufic was only retained for ornamentation and head-lines.
They are of a much later date, the last one, indeed, having been compiled more than four hundred years after the Hijra.
The emasculation is a secret rite and takes place under the direction of the chief Hijra priest of Behechra.
And one step taken in that direction was to assign to the Hindu year the same number with the Hijra year.
