SULAIMANI — The General Secretariat of the federal Council of Ministers said on Wednesday (October 13) that October 18 will be an official holiday for the government offices across Iraq on the occasion of the Birthday of the Prophet Muhammad.

October 18 coincides with 12 Rabi' al-awwal, which marks the birthday of the Prophet of Islam and the Mawlid.

Last year, public celebrations for Mawlid were not held in the Kurdistan Region because of the coronavirus pandemic.
