Eid al-Adha: Celebrate Faith And Togetherness

Eid Al Adha, Dubai blog banner by Travel Saga Tourism

Dubai, the city of towering marvels and glistening deserts, will again decorated with prayer and lighting all around. The next major public holiday in 2024 will be a 2 part event consisting of Arafat Day and Eid Al Adha. Arafat Day is expected to fall on Sunday, June 16, 2024, but the exact date is dependent on the sighting of the new moon. Eid Al Adha, the more significant of the 2 holidays, is likely to be observed from Monday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 19 2024, again subject to lunar visibility.

For those with a typical Saturday-Sunday weekend, this means a 5-day break, with work resuming on Thursday, June 20. Alternatively, UAE residents could enjoy a nine-day holiday period by taking Thursday, June 20 and Friday, June 21 off.

However, it’s important to note that the specific dates for these Islamic holidays are contingent on the actual sighting of the new moon. The Islamic calendar, being lunar-based, requires official confirmation closer to the time before the Gregorian calendar dates can be finalised. UAE authorities will provide the definitive schedule once the moon has been sighted.

So, during this season of holiday, enjoy the top things to do in Dubai or book your international tour package, with a trusted partner, Travel Saga Tourism.

What is Eid-al-Adha?

Eid-al-Adha manifests as a testimony to the faith and obedience of Prophet Abraham, who followed the command given by God to sacrifice his son. Muslims celebrate it with special collective prayers and spending time with family over rich feasts, as well as the ritual of exchanging gifts.

Dubai joins in the celebration by combining traditional and modern concepts of Eid-al-Adha. The city erupts in joy, with the city’s malls and markets decked out in bright lights, decorations, and colourful hues.

This is perhaps the best time to visit, as the whole city comes alive with a spirit of generosity and togetherness. Check out the spiritual significance of Eid-al-Adha:
