UAE Holiday: Residents of UAE can look forward to a 4-day break on Eid Al Adha in 2022

The Islamic festival Eid Al Adha dates may provide residents with a four-day holiday during the sacrificial festival on the 10th of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah.

The sighting of the crescent moon marks the beginning of an Islamic month in the Hijri lunar calendar. However, astronomical computations may be used to estimate the most likely dates.

Saturday, July 9, is expected to be the first day of Eid Al Adha, according to Ibrahim Al Jarwan, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Emirates Astronomy Society.

Arafah Day, which falls on the day before Eid Al Adha, is also a holiday in the UAE, according to the UAE’s official calendar. As a result, residents will get a four-day holiday from Dhul Hijjah 9 to 12.

This would most likely happen between Friday, July 8 and Monday, July 11. That implies that during Eid Al Adha 2022, public and private sector employees in the UAE will get a four-day weekend.
