The Government of Sindh has announced 12th Rabi ul Awal as a public holiday across the province. The religious holiday will be marked on Sunday, October 9. Muslims in Pakistan and across the world commemorate the 12th of Rabi ul Awal as the day when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born.
According to the council, the information is very clear in all areas of Pakistan, even with the naked eye, there is absolutely no possibility of sighting the crescent even with a telescope, so September 27 will be 30 Safar-ul-Muzaffar and September 28, 1st of Rabi-ul-Awwal. Thus, 12th of Rabi’ul Awal will be on Sunday, October 9.
Rabi’ al-awwal (ربيع الأوّل) is the third month in the Islamic calendar. During this month, Muslims around the world celebrate Mawlid – the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad(PBUH). Sunni Muslims believe the exact date of birth of Muhammad (PBUH) to have been on the twelfth of this month, whereas Shi’a Muslims believe him to have been born on the dawn of the seventeenth day. The name Rabī‘ al-awwal means the first [month] or beginning of spring, referring to its position in the pre-Islamic Arabian calendar. Hence this is considered to be a very blessed month.
