Mawlid al-Nabi in 2015 is on Saturday, the 3rd of January.
Note that in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate Mawlid al-Nabi on the sunset of Friday, the 2nd of January.
In 2015 Mawlid al-Nabi will occur twice! On the second occurance, it will occur on Wednesday, the 23rd of December.
As we noted before, in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims will celebrate the second occurance of Mawlid al-Nabi on the sunset of Tuesday, the 22nd of December.
Although Mawlid al-Nabi is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This difference means Mawlid al-Nabi moves in the Gregorian calendar approximately 11 days every year. The date of Mawlid al-Nabi may also vary from country to country depending on whether the moon has been sighted or not.
The dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America for the celebration of Mawlid al-Nabi. Note that these dates are based on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still being hotly debated.
