The Jordanian government is expected to announce a public holiday on Thursday, November 30, for the occasion of the Mawlid, which celebrates the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, official sources told Roya.

The Mawlid is celebrated in Rabi' al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar, which will be on November 30 this year.

The government is expected to announce the holiday, which will allow most employees in the public sector to have the day off.

Last year on December, the government announced a public holiday in the occasion of Mawlid.
