If you're struggling to get back into the swing of work this week, don't worry.
There's another UAE public holiday coming sooner than you'd think.
September 1 is likely to be Muharram 1, the first day of the Hijri New Year.
Muharram 1, which falls on a Sunday, will mark the first day of the 1441 Hijri New Year. The current month of Zul Hijjah is the final month of the Islamic calendar.
The date of Muharram 1 will be confirmed after the sighting of the moon, but it is likely to be on Sunday, September 1.
The government of Dubai has declared that there will be a one-day holiday for Muharram 1 - so if all goes to plan, three day weekend!
