Shawwal (Arabic: شَوَّال‎, Šawwāl) is the tenth month of the lunar based Islamic calendar.

Shawwāl stems from the verb shāla (شَالَ) to 'lift or carry', generally to take or move things from one place to another, so named because a female camel normally would be carrying a fetus at this time of year.
