The holy month of Ramadan brings with it a sense of spirituality across the UAE. School and office timings are relaxed as Muslims abstain from food and water during the day. Mosques host extended late evening and post-midnight prayers.
April 2 will mark the first day of the holy month of Ramadan in 2022. This is as per astronomical calculation, and the actual date will be determined by the sighting of the crescent moon, on which the Islamic calendar is based.
This year, Ramadan is expected to last 30 days till May 1. This means that May 2 is likely to be the first day of the Islamic festival of Eid Al Fitr.
