The end of Ramadan and the first day of Eid Al Fitr is less than two weeks away, folks! So when will the festival dates fall in the UAE?

Predictions are in, and Ebrahim Al Jarwan, General Supervisor at Sharjah Planetarium, said that according to astronomical calculations, Fri June 15 will be the first day of Eid Al Fitr.

Looking further into the future, he says Eid Al Adha will most likely fall on Wed August 22. 

In case you’re new in the region, Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha are two of the biggest and most important Islamic celebrations, meaning the “festival of breaking the fast” and the “festival of sacrifice”.
