Eid Al Fitr in UAE might fall on a Saturday or Sunday


- Advertisment -

The moon-sighting committee will meet on May 22 to officially announce the start of Eid Al Fitr in UAE.

Some astronomers predict Eid Al Fitr to fall either on Saturday, May 23 or on Sunday, May 24.

If the moon is sighted on May 22, the Holy Month of Ramadan will be 29 days long and May 23 will be Shawwal 1 and the first day of Eid.

However, shall the committee see the moon on May 23, then May 24 will be Shawwal 1, thus the first day of Eid.

If the Eid falls on May 23, workers in the UAE will get a total of four days of holidays–May 22 to 25. However, if the start of Eid is May 24, they will enjoy five days holidays–May 22 to 26.
