Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Saturday, January 3, 2015, as the annual non-working public holiday in Bahrain to mark the upcoming Anniversary of the Birthday of Prophet Mohammed non-working public holiday of Bahrain.

In addition, as was the case some previous years (2012-02-01), but not all (2014-01-09 and 2013-01-21), as the aforementioned date coincides with the Fridays and Saturdays weekly days of rest in Bahrain (2006-08-02), the aforementioned circular states that "as Saturday is already an official holiday, it will be replaced by Sunday, January 4" for the Kingdom's ministries and state departments.
