Automatically translating Gregorian and Hajrii dates

Are there functions in Oracle to automatically translate a Gregorian date to Hajrii date (arabic date).

I'm unsure of the question here. The TO_CHAR and TO_DATE format masks do not have masks which convert Gregorian or Julian dates to Hajrii dates. However, the documentation does add that format masks for the following masks, (MONTH,MON,DAY,DY,BC or AD or B.C. or A.D.,AM or PM or A.M or P.M.) depends on the country and language that your database is using. So you'll have to check the National Language Support documentation to see if this handles your case.
