UAE Announces Eid Al Fitr Holiday Dates for Private Sector

The UAE has announced dates for an extended holiday on the account of Eid Al Fitr for the private sector.

This means that UAE residents could take advantage of up to a nine-day holiday starting Saturday, April 6 and ending Sunday, April 14.

Work will resume on Monday, April 15.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced that Monday, 29 Ramadan (8 April 2024) to 3 Shawwal (or what is equivalent to it in Gregorian calendar) will be a paid holiday for all employees in the private sector across the UAE on the occasion of Eid Al…

The duration of the holiday will depend on the sighting of the crescent moon and will be confirmed closer to the time, but the start date is now confirmed.

If Ramadan lasts for 30 days the Eid Al Fitr holiday will begin on Monday, April 8 (Ramadan 29), and last until Friday, April 12 (Shawwal 3). Including two Saturday-Sunday weekends there will be a total of nine days of holiday.

However, if Ramadan lasts 29 days there will be six consecutive days of holiday. In this instance, Eid Al Fitr will begin on Monday, April 8 (Ramadan 29) and last until Thursday, April 11.

Eid al-Fitr is a significant religious festival celebrated by Muslims worldwide. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The festival is a time of joy, gratitude, and communal celebration.

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated to commemorate the completion of the spiritual journey of Ramadan, during which Muslims observe fasting from dawn to sunset.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and is seen as a time of self-reflection, increased devotion, and closeness to Allah (God).
