The Holy Eid-e-Miladunnabi, marking the anniversary of the birth and death of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), will be observed on October 9.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at the conference room of the National Mosque Baitul Mukarram on Monday evening with Additional Secretary of the Religious Affairs Ministry Md Munim Hasan in the chair.

The meeting informed that the moon of the Holy Rabi-ul-Awal of 1444 Hijri was not sighted in the Bangladesh sky. Consequently, the month of Holy Rabi-ul-Awal will be counted from September 28, Wednesday.

With divine blessings and messages of peace for mankind, Prophet Muhammad (SM) was born on the 12th of Rabiul Awal in 570 AD in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

After his 23-year-long preaching of Islam as a religion, he also passed away on the same day in 632 AD in Medina.

The day is a public holiday in Bangladesh. On that day, milad mahfil and discussion programmes will be organised in mosques and various religious institutions in the country.
