    How to say that the two dates in two different calendars coincide?

    The 24th of Shawwal coincides with 12th of October.

    I want to say, Today is the 24th of Shawwal (12th of October) ... .


    Shawwal: The tenth month of the year in the Islamic calendar.

    Today is the 24th of Shawwal, and the 12th of October in the Gregorian Calendar.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    The use of parentheses here as you did is OK.
