Due to the fact that Pakistan did not view the moon during the holy month of Rabi ul Awal, Eid Milad un Nabi (PBUH) will be celebrated on October 9.
The shift happened when Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, head of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, presided over a zonal committee meeting in Islamabad’s Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony’s Kohsar Block.
Under the supervision of Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee convened in Quetta on Monday night to mark the Rabi-ul-Awwal moon.
Following the meeting, Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad announced that the new lunar month will begin on September 28 and that the 12th day of Rabi-ul-Awwal (Eid Milad-un-Nabi) will be marked on October 9 due to the fact that the moon for the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal could not be seen across the country (Sunday).
In addition, zonal committee meetings were held in each of the country’s main cities. The central body makes decisions based on information gathered from people and zonal committees around the committee.
Muslims all across the globe remember the birth of Prophet Muhammad on the 12th day of the Islamic month of Rabi-ul-Awwal (Peace Be Upon Him).
