Malaysian 2014 Islamic Public Holidays Announced
 
(Posted on Thursday, May 3, 2012)

Source: Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim)

Malaysia's governmental Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, aka. JAKIM) has published its Islamic calendar for 2014 (corresponding to 1435-1436 AH).

The above announcement means that, de facto, the dates of the following Muslim public holidays in Malaysia have now been set for 2014: Maulidur Rasul (The Prophet's Birthday), Israk dan Mikraj (The Prophet's Night Journey), Awal Ramadhan (First of Ramadan), Nuzul Al-Quran (Revelation of the Koran), Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan), Hari Raya Korban (Feast of Sacrifice), and Awal Muharam (Islamic New Year).

Based on past practices (01-Aug-2011, 20-Jul-2010 and 11-Sep-2009), this de facto announcement of 2014 Muslim public holidays dates, and the dates of the other non-Muslim Malaysian public holidays for 2014, are not expected to be officially confirmed until the end of the summer of 2013.
