Holiday declared for Milad un Nabi in Telangana

Hyderabad: The Telangana government has declared a holiday for Milad un Nabi, which is observed on the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammed.

According to the Telangana State Portal Calendar for 2023, the Milad un Nabi holiday in the state will be observed on Thursday, September 28. The day has been listed under ‘General Holidays.’

However, it is important to note that the holiday date in Telangana is subject to change based on the sighting of the Moon. Since the Islamic calendar relies on the sighting of the crescent to determine the beginning of each month, the start of Rabi’ al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar, depends on the sighting of the Moon.
