// Java program to demonstrate of() 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
            // HijrahDate Object
            // By using of() method
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.of(1444, 04, 24);
  
            // 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);
        }
    }

public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            // By using of() method
            HijrahDate hidate
                = HijrahDate.of(2014, 04, 24);
