The moon of Rabi-ul-Awal has not been sighted in the country. The first Rabi-ul-Awwal will be on Monday 19 October.
Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman chaired a meeting of the Central Ruet Hilal Committee to sight the new moon of Rabi-ul-Awal 1441 AH, while zonal committees meetings also held in other provinces.
The committees received no evidence of moon sightings from Lahore, Quetta and Peshawar. Representatives of the Meteorological Department and other experts also attended the meeting to provide technical assistance to the scholars.
Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, while talking to media, announced that the moon of the first month of Rabi-ul-Awwal was sighted from any part of the country.
Chairman Ruet Hilal Committee announced that the moon of Rabi-ul-Awal 1441 AH has not been sighted, therefore the first Rabi-ul-Awal will be on Monday, October 19.
Accordingly, Eid Milad-un-Nabi will be celebrated on Friday, October 30, with religious devotion and respect.
Note that the month of Rabi-ul-Awal has a special significance for the Muslim Ummah because it is the month in which the last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came into the world.
The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is the role model for the whole world, and he has attained such perfection that there was no one like him and no one can come to the Day of Resurrection.
