Why use "the" before 9th September. I think it is wrong also?

Roopa said: (Jul 22, 2016)  
Here we can't use 'the'.

Shubham said: (Aug 11, 2016)  
Here, "the" is wrong.

It should be "On the 9th "OF" September at five o'clock".

You are right @Gautam.

But this sounds more sensible 'On 9th September at 5 o'clock'. I think 'of' can be used when the statement says the number in words.

Actually, the same preposition should not be used with two words unless it is appropriate to each of them.
