At the heart of every Muslim, the day of Mawlid al-Nabi (also spelled Al Mawlid an-Nabiwi) is of particular importance. Mawlid al-Nabi is the celebration of the birth of the last and final Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). On that day, Muslims get to meditate on the beautiful life of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
Note that with regards to the Muslim calendar, a holiday is commenced on the sunset of the preceding day; thus, Mawlid al-Nabi 2017 will be observed on the sunset of Wednesday 29th Nov, 2017.
Mawlid al-Nabi always falls on the same day according to the Islamic calendar; for it being a lunar calendar. Nonetheless, the day differs on the Gregorian calendar as it is a solar calendar; causing roughly an eleven day difference each year.
The dates of Mawlid al-Nabi are usually determined by either an actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes, or through astronomical calculations. Note that dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America.
