Official Eid Al Adha Holiday Announced in UAE

Eid Al Adha or known as the Festival of Sacrifice is considered the most important Islamic holiday celebrated by muslims worldwide with families being gathered together to exchange gifts and sweets and is the time where people shared their blessings with the less fortunate as an act of sincere generosity.

Recently, the Ministry of Human Resources (MOHRE) announced the holidays for private and public sectors in the country in a post on X (Twitter).

Earlier, the Eid Al Adha holiday for government employees in Dubai had been announced, starting from Saturday, June 15, until Tuesday, June 18, with the official return to work on Wednesday, June 19.

Sharjah on the other hand has announced the holiday dates for public sector employees which will start from June 15 until June 18, creating a 5-day break for Sharjah government employees, combined with the Friday weekend.

And for the private sector in the country, it was announced that the dates will be from Saturday, June 15, until Tuesday June 18. The dates were decided after the crescent of the month of Dhul Hijjah 1445 was photographed from Abu Dhabi on Friday, June 7.

The holiest day in Islam is marked on Dhul Hijjah 9, Arafah Day - which falls on the 15th of June - will officially be marked on June 16 to 18. Thus, the break is four days long.

Arafat Day commemorates a key event in the Islamic pilgrimage of Hajj and marks a day of spiritual reflection, unity, and supplication. After this important day, we will be having the Eid Al Adha festival, one of the two major festivals for Muslims (the first one being the Eid Al Fitr) this marks the conclusion of the pilgrimage to Mecca, the holiday that gives muslims the chance together with their community and celebrate with feasts and family time.
