I call it the People of the Book Calendar

Jewish, Christian and Islamic calendars combined into one. I call it the People of the Book Calendar, referring to the "people of scripture", specifically that of the three Abrahamic monotheistic religions. It shows the date, month and year of each day in each calendar, as well as important dates for each calendar. It also shows the moon phases: new, 1st quarter, full and 3rd quarter.

The Christian (Gregorian) calendar is used world-wide as the universal calendar for business, much like English is a universal business language. The Jewish and Islamic calendars are still in use today by members of those faiths and in certain countries. As a result, calendars combining one of these with the Gregorian calendar are readily available, but this calendar combines all three so we can all use the same one.

Jewish Months:
Tishrei, Cheshvan, Kislev, Tevet, Shevat, Adar, Nissan, Iyar, Sivan, Tammuz, Av, Elul
Jewish Days:
rishon, sheni, shlishi, revi’i, chamishi, shishi, shabbat

Christian Months:

Christian Days:
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

Islamic Months:
Muharram, Safar, Rabi' al-Awwal, Rabi' al-Awwal, Rabi' ath-Thani, Jumada al-Ula, Jumada al-Akhirah, Rajab, Sha'ban, Ramadan, Shawwal, Dhul-Qa'dah, Dhul-Hijjah
Islamic Days:
al-aḥad, al-ithnayn, al-thalāthāʾ, al-arbaʿāʾ, al-khamīs, al-jumuʿah, al-sabt

All three calendars begin the week with Sunday.

When I finished university I searched for a calendar combining these three calendars, thinking surely it already existed. I was shocked to be unable to find one. In my time at university I learned a great deal about each of these religions, and how closely related they are to each other. To me, it only makes sense that their calendars be used together as a tool to be aware of the important dates in each other's lives. Without effort, the user will know when a friend or colleague or business prospect has a holiday or special day coming up. It is my hope that by using this calendar we will all passively learn more about each other, leading to a greater understanding between us.
