The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Majilis Ugama Islam Singapura) has released its annual official Islamic Calendar to be used in Singapore for the calendar year 2016, in particular for the determination of the dates of Singapore's 2 annual public holidays based on the Hijra calendar.
The aforementioned annual announcement of the annual official Islamic Calendar to be used in Singapore (17-Aug-2014, 29-Jul-2013 and 24-Jul-2012) comes before the expected announcement by Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of the list of the official dates for Singapore's 2016 public holidays.
Note that, contrary to the Deepavali Singapore non-working public holiday, which is often incorrectly announced initially, thus requiring a later erratum (07-Apr-2014, 09-Apr-2013, 10-Feb-2009, 27-Mar-2008, 11-Apr-2003, and 04-Mar-2002), the dates of the 2 annual Muslim public holidays in Singapore have never in recent history been modified after the initial MOM announcement of the annual non-working public holidays in Singapore for the upcoming year.
