Eid al-Fitr 2020 holiday dates for public sector employees in Dubai have been announced by the UAE's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources.
State news agency WAM announced the news today (Monday May 11), stating that the 2020 Eid al-Fitr holiday will start on Friday May 22 (which is Ramadan 29) and will run until Shawwal 3 in the Islamic calendar.
Eid al-Fitr 2020 in Dubai is expected to last until Tuesday May 26 or Wednesday May 27, depending on whether Ramadan is 29 or 30 days this year.
The exact dates will be confirmed nearer to the time by the moon-sighting committee, who will meet on the night before the 30th day of Ramadan to look for the crescent moon that signifies the start of the new month.
Eid al-Fitr 2020 marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting for Muslims.
