National Moon Sighting Committee holds meeting at the Islamic Foundation`s Baitul Mukarram office

The Eid-e-Miladunnabi, marking the anniversary of birth and death of Prophet Muhammad, was observed across Bangladesh on October 9 with due religious fervor and festivity.

The decision was taken at the National Moon Sighting Committee’s meeting held at the Islamic Foundation’s Baitul Mukarram office as the moon of Rabiul Awal of 1443 Hijri was not sighted in Bangladesh sky on Monday (September 26) evening.

Additional Secretary of the Religious Affairs Ministry, Md Munim Hasan presided over the meeting.

On this day in 570, the 12th of Rabiul Awal of the Hijri calendar, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born in Makkah of Saudi Arabia with divine blessings and messages of peace for mankind.

He also passed away on the same day years later.

The day is a public holiday.
