Eid Milad ul-Nabi (Mawlid, Milad) falls on the 12th or 17th day of the Islamic month of Rabi' al-awwal. Some Muslims in Australia celebrate the Prophet Muhammad's birth and life on this date with lectures and conferences on Islam and current events in the Islamic world.
Milad un Nabi (Mawlid) is not a public holiday. It falls on Sunday, 10 November 2019 and most businesses follow regular Sunday opening hours in Australia.
Many Muslims in Australia may fast during daylight hours on Eid Milad ul-Nabi. They may also attend special prayer meetings or lectures on Muhammad's life or on Islam's spiritual aspects. Some Muslim groups also hold classes for children on Muhammad's life or a communal meal or celebration.
The rooms used during the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday celebrations are often modestly decorated with banners, flowers or balloons. Other groups hold lectures to inform people about Islam, Mohammed's life and current events in the Muslim world. Stalls selling Islamic books are seen at many events.
Eid Milad ul-Nabi is not a federal public holiday in Australia.
Note: Regional customs or moon sightings may cause a variation of the date for Islamic holidays, which begin at sundown the day before the date specified for the holiday. The Islamic calendar is lunar and the days begin at sunset, so there may be one-day error depending on when the New Moon is first seen.
