Malaysia's Department of the Prime Minister's Office has issued a statement confirming that, as per the recently-released list of annual non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2015, the annual Maulidur Rasul (Prophet's Birthday) non-working public holiday will indeed occur twice in 2015, once in January and once in December.

Today's announcement confirms last month's (2014-08-11) joint announcement by Malaysia's Cabinet's and the Constitution and Government Relations Department of the Prime Minister's Office, of the annual official Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2015 and State Public Holiday Schedule 2015.

Both of the aforementioned announcements confirm last year's (2013-12-31) publication by Malaysia's governmental Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, aka. JAKIM) of its Islamic calendar for 2015 (corresponding to 1436-1437 AH) and related annual Islamic non-working public holidays in Malaysia.
