Eid Al Adha Bakra Eid Holiday Dates Announced for the UAE Private Sector


The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (Mohre) has declared the dates for the Eid Al Adha holiday for the private sector. The holiday will extend from Saturday, June 15, to Tuesday, June 18.

In observance of Arafah Day, the holiest day in Islam, one paid holiday is given on Dhul Hijjah 9, corresponding to Saturday, June 15, in the Gregorian calendar.

Eid Al Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is observed from Dhul Hijjah 10 to 12, which translates to June 16 to 18 in the Gregorian calendar. During this period, three days off are granted.

Public sector employees will observe the holiday on the same dates.

The crescent moon marking the beginning of Dhul Hijjah 1445 was sighted from Abu Dhabi on Friday, June 7.

Authorities in Saudi Arabia announced on Thursday that the crescent moon had been spotted, indicating the start of Dhul Hijjah on June 7. Consequently, Eid Al Adha in Saudi Arabia will begin on June 16.

Other countries, including Oman, India, and Pakistan, will celebrate the first day of Eid Al Adha on June 17, based on their moon observations.
