The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) in the United Arab Emirates has issued a circular announcing the holidays for Eid al-Adha in the country.
According to the details mentioned in the circular, Eid al-Adha holidays will be observed from the 9th to the 12th of Dhu al-Hijjah.
This announcement has been made for both public and private sectors in the UAE, following the decision of the Cabinet regarding approved public holidays for the year 2023.
It should be noted that India and Malaysia have not sighted the moon for Dhu al-Hijjah, so Eid al-Adha will be observed on June 29th in those countries.
However, there is no information yet regarding the moon sighting in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
If the moon is not sighted there as well, the holiday schedule indicates that the Eid holidays will begin on Wednesday, June 28th, and there will be five holidays due to the immediate weekend on Sunday.
However, if the moon is sighted today, the first holiday will be on Tuesday, June 27th, making it a six-day holiday for employees.
In this case, if they somehow manage to take a leave on the following Monday, they will have the opportunity to combine two holidays of the previous week with the nine holidays of the current week
