Long weekend ahead: Prophet’s birthday to fall on Thursday, October 29


- Advertisment -

Employees in the UAE will have a long weekend this month as Prophet Muhammad’s birthday falls on Thursday, October 29. 

According to Ibrahim Al Jarwan, a member of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences. 

Al Jarwan was quoted as saying by UAE Barq that the new crescent would be visible yesterday at 23:31 and on Saturday, the crescent will set about 43 minutes after sunset. 

“Hence, Sunday, October 18, shall mark the first day of Rabi’-Awal 1442 H and the Prophet’s birth anniversary shall fall on Thursday, October 29,” he added. 

This means that residents and citizens will have a long weekend at the end of October.
