Muslims around the world will observe the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad, Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, on 24 December, which will be the second such celebration in the year 2015.

The Prophet's birthday was also marked on 3 January this year based on the Hijri calendar, which is 11 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar.

The shorter Islamic year has resulted in the festival of Eid-e-Milad falling twice in the Gregorian year of 2015.

The Prophet’s birth anniversary is usually marked on the 12th day of the third month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Muslims in Sri Lanka will mark the day today, 24 December.
