The now() method of java.time.chrono.HijrahDate class is used to get the current hijrah date according to the hijrah calendar system from the specified clock.

Syntax:

public static HijrahDate now(Clock clock)

Parameter: This method takes the object of the clock on the basis of which Hijrah date is going to be formed.

Return Value: This method returns the current Hijrah date according to the Hijrah calendar system from the specified clock.

Below are the examples to illustrate the now() method:

Example 1:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate now() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
            // Creating and initializing clock
            Clock clock = Clock.systemUTC();
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.now(clock);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
        }
    }
}


Output:

HijrahDate: Hijrah-umalqura AH 1441-06-25

Example 2:

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// now() method
  
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.time.*;
import java.time.chrono.*;
import java.time.temporal.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing clock
            Clock clock
                = Clock.systemDefaultZone();
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.now(clock);
  
            // Display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahDate: "
                               + hidate);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
            System.out.println("passed parameter can"
                               + " not form a date");
            System.out.println("Exception thrown: "
                               + e);
