The government of Sindh has officially declared September 29, 2023, as a public holiday across the province in honor of Eid Miladun Nabi (PBUH), the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad. This announcement comes a day after the federal government issued a similar notification, marking the same date as a public holiday.
Eid Miladun Nabi, observed on the 12th of Rabi ul Awal each year according to the Islamic calendar, is a day of great religious significance for Muslims worldwide. In Pakistan, this occasion is marked with fervor and enthusiasm, with streets across the country adorned in festive decorations. Major cities witness processions where participants wave flags and chant slogans, expressing their devotion to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The Cabinet Division, in its notification, stated that the Prime Minister was pleased to declare September 29, 2023, a Friday, as a public holiday on the occasion of Eid Miladun Nabi (12th Rabiul Awwal 1445 A.H). The decision aligns with the federal government’s earlier declaration, ensuring a unified observance of the holiday across the country.
This move by the Sindh government reflects the importance of religious observances in the social fabric of Pakistan, reinforcing the nation’s commitment to honoring its Islamic heritage. As citizens prepare to celebrate this auspicious day, the public holiday will provide an opportunity for them to engage in religious activities and express their devotion to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
