UAE announces holiday dates for Eid Al Adha
Astronomical studies indicate that the feast of Eid Al Adha will most likely occur on June 28.
The Federal Government Human Resources Authority (FAHR) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) stated on Sunday that public sector employees would get the day off for Eid Al Adha.
From Dhul-Hijjah 9 to 12 1444 AH (Anno Hegirae in Latin, or "in the year of the Hijra"), the public sector will have holidays. This is equivalent to June 27, 2023, to June 30, 2023.
The date of Arafat Day is anticipated to be Tuesday, June 27. Eid is anticipated to fall on June 28 the following day. As a result, the break is probably going to take place from Tuesday, June 27, to Friday, June 30. Additionally, because the Eid holidays fall on a weekend in the UAE, locals can anticipate up to six days off.
On July 3rd, work will start up again.
This statement follows the Cabinet's decision about the official holidays that the UAE's public and private sectors would observe in 2023.
On Sunday, June 18, the Gulf nations' Dhul-Hijjah 1444 AH/2023 calendar month is anticipated to begin.
The moon-sighting committee will confirm the precise date closer to the event.
About Eid Al Adha
The Islamic holiday of Eid Al Adha, also known as Bakra Eid and Eid uz Zuha in India, commemorates the sacrifices of the Prophet Ibrahim, his wife Hajar, and their son the Prophet Ismail on the tenth of Dhul-Hijjah, one of the holiest months in the Islamic calendar.
The yearly Haj rituals, or the trip to Makkah, coincide with Eid Al Adha, the second holiest celebration for Muslims worldwide.
