What Is Arafat Day?

Arafat Day holds profound significance in the Islamic calendar. It marks the second day of the Hajj pilgrimage to the sacred land of Saudi Arabia. Falling on the 9th day of the lunar Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, this solemn occasion is observed by Muslims worldwide as a day of fasting and spiritual reflection.

In the United Arab Emirates, Arafat Day is recognized as a public holiday, allowing individuals to dedicate themselves to worship and contemplation. While its exact date is contingent upon the sighting of the moon, its inclusion in the Eid Al Adha break ensures an extended respite period for UAE residents.

Embracing Eid Al Adha

Following the observance of Arafat Day, the UAE eagerly anticipates the arrival of Eid Al Adha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice. Rooted in tradition and faith, this joyous celebration commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son to obey God.

As the UAE prepares to mark this auspicious occasion, families gather to exchange heartfelt greetings, share festive meals, and engage in charitable deeds. From vibrant cultural festivities to solemn prayer services, Eid Al Adha epitomizes the spirit of unity, compassion, and gratitude.

So, it’s time to plan your holidays without further ado!
