Eid Al Fitr  in UAE to begin on Sunday

 

DUBAI – Eid Al Fitr in the UAE will begin on Sunday (May 24), the moon sighting committee confirmed on Friday.

The announcement means public and private sector employees in the UAE will have a holiday until May 27 and resume work on Thursday (May 28).

According to state news agency WAM, the moon-sighting committee convened remotely after maghrib prayers on Friday to spot the new moon.

The committee agreed it was not possible to see the new crescent moon, which would indicate the start of the next Islamic month.

This means Ramadan will last 30 days this year and the first day of Eid or Shawwal 1 will fall on Sunday.

The committee was headed by Minister of Justice Sultan Al Badi and includes a number of senior officials. ICA/Expat Media
