UAE may enjoy a three-day long weekend this October


As the Prophet’s Birthday expected to take place later this month, UAE residents may enjoy a three-day long weekend. 

The Islamic holiday for this year follows the Hijri calendar falling on Rabi Al Awaal 12. As it’s dependent on moon-sighting, the Prophet’s Birthday may fall on Wednesday, October 28, or on Thursday, October 29. 

If it falls on the 29th, workers who enjoy a two-day holiday will have a total of three days off before October ends. 

The official announcement will be declared by the UAE government this month.
