Malaysian 2017 Islamic Calendar Amended
 
(Posted on Monday, January 16, 2017)

Source: Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (Jakim)

Malaysia's governmental Department of Islamic Development (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, aka. JAKIM) has announced that it has revised its previously-announced Islamic calendar for the western year 2017 (corresponding to 1438-1439 AH).

The aforementioned announcement of the Islamic calendar for the western year 2017 (corresponding to 1438-1439 AH), released a year and a half ago (24-Sep-2015), as usual (24-May-2014, 31-Dec-2013, 03-May-2012, 08-Dec-2011 08-May-2010 and 05-May-2009), implied a de facto declaration of the dates of the Muslim public holidays in Malaysia for 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).

However, at the time of that announcement of the Malaysian Islamic calendar for the western year 2017, we had noted that the date announced for Awal Muharam 1439 (Islamic New Year 1439) was odd, and that one would have to see if it would be maintained in the list of official national non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2017, traditionally released the following year, which it was (22-Jul-2016).

Presumably, the Government of Malaysia will soon announce a revised version of its list of official national non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2017, as happened 3 years ago in the case of the the announced date for the 2014 Deepavali public holiday in Malaysia (07-Dec-2013 and 13-Jul-2013).
