Eid Al Adha most likely to begin on September 1
2017 has been touted as the year of long weekends, and Eid Al Adha is no different!
This year's Eid Al Adha is most likely to fall on Friday, September 1, 2017, according to details available on the Islamic Affairs & Charitable Activities Department of the Government of Dubai. The festivities will begin based on the sighting of the new moon, as is the case with every Eid holiday.
Eid al Adha celebrations begin after the Hajj, the most important of Islamic pilgrimages to Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
The UAE usually gives all employees three days off for Eid Al Adha, and we really hope this year will be no different!
