Eid al-Fitr start date for Dubai predicted by astronomers

Astronomers have predicted the start date for Eid al-Fitr in Dubai, and it looks like it’s going to begin on Tuesday June 4.

This means that Ramadan will end after 30 days of fasting in the UAE, following the start of the period on May 6.

The prediction has been made by experts at the International Astronomical Center.

If Eid is declared on Tuesday June 4, some workers could enjoy a five-day holiday if they don’t work on a Friday or Saturday.

According to an announcement by the government earlier this year, the holiday will apply for both the public and private sector.

In addition, the government suggests the dates for Eid Al-Adha holidays will fall between August 9 and 12.

Remember, the final dates for Eid will be confirmed by the UAE government towards the end of Ramadan, so keep an eye on Time Out Dubai for updates.
