When was Mawlid al-Nabi in 2022?

Mawlid al-Nabi in 2022 was on Saturday, the 8th of October (8/10/2022).

When did Mawlid al-Nabi celebrations begin in 2022?

Note that in the Muslim calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Muslims celebrated Mawlid al-Nabi on the sunset of Friday, the 7th of October.

Although Mawlid al-Nabi is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar, the date on the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, since the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar and the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. This difference means Mawlid al-Nabi moves in the Gregorian calendar approximately 11 days every year. The date of Mawlid al-Nabi may also vary from country to country depending on whether the moon has been sighted or not.

The dates provided here are based on the dates adopted by the Fiqh Council of North America for the celebration of Mawlid al-Nabi. Note that these dates are based on astronomical calculations to affirm each date, and not on the actual sighting of the moon with the naked eyes. This approach is accepted by many, but is still being hotly debated.
