The UAE named the imperial dana of the beginning of Ramadan

In 2022, the Muslim holy month of Ramadan is likely to begin on April 2, said Ibrahim Al Jarwan, an Arab astronomer and member of the Arab Federation of Space and Astronomical Sciences.

However, the exact date for the start of Ramadan will traditionally be determined by the Moon Observing Committee. If the astronomers’ calculations turn out to be correct, then the first long weekend will await working residents of the UAE from May 2 to 5, 2022, when the Eid al Fitr holiday will be celebrated in the country.

Traditionally, Eid al Fitr, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan and its associated fasting, is a joyous time to meet family and friends, travel and go shopping.

Long weekend working citizens and residents of the UAE will receive in honor of the religious holiday Eid al Adha – from 9 to 11 July. The Eid al-Adha holiday, also known as Eid al-Adha, is one of the main religious holidays of Muslims, reminiscent of a person’s devotion to God and the mercy of the Almighty. The holiday crowns the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.

The Islamic New Year will be celebrated on July 30th. The Muslim year is 11-12 days shorter than the Gregorian year, so the date of the holiday is floating. The New Year is celebrated on the first day of the Islamic month of Muharram, which is also the first day of Hijri. Hijra in Islam refers to the resettlement of the prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina in 622, which allowed the prophet to escape from the persecutors and lay the foundation for the first Islamic state.

Prophet Muhammad’s birthday in 2022 will fall on October 8th. The holiday is celebrated on the 12th day of the month of Rabi Al Awal, the third in the Islamic calendar, and is called Mawlid al-Nabi. Since the exact date of the prophet’s birth is unknown, this memorable day was timed to coincide with the day of his death – on the night of the 11th to 12th of the third month. The date of the celebration is shifted every year by 12 days in advance.

The last long weekend in 2021 will be the days on which the Day of the Fallen Warriors and the National Day of the UAE will be celebrated: from 1 to 3 December. On December 2, 1971, the rulers of several emirates signed an alliance agreement to create a single state, the United Arab Emirates. The country is dressed in the colors of the UAE flag: shopping centers and skyscrapers, parks and beaches – literally everything is replete with red, white, green and black colors. In the evenings, local residents will receive festive fireworks.
