Category: Information

The UAE has confirmed the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan will be Monday, June 6.

The news agency WAM said the moonsighting committee, chaired by Sultan Bin Saeed Al Baid, Minister of Justice, has announced the last day of Sha'aban and that Monday is the first day of Ramadan.

Head of State, Sheikh Khalifa, and his Deputy, Mohammed bin Zayed congratulated Kings, Presidents and Princes of Arabic and Islamic States on the occasion of Ramadan.

News agencies in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain also announced that Monday will be the first day of Ramadan. In Oman, the first day of Ramadan will be on Tuesday.

All Muslim adults are expected to observe a fasting period during daylight hours, leading public sector firms and government departments to reduce their operating hours during the day.

The UAE’s Ministry of Labour said last week that working hours for all employees in the public sector will be from from 9am to 2pm and that private sector hours should be cut from eight to six hours during the Holy Month.
