Don't worry: There's another public holiday long-weekend coming VERY soon

14 Aug 2019

The next UAE public holiday is already near.

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!
