In the United Arab Emirates, 9 April 2024 was the last day of the holy month of Ramadan, with the religious festival of Eid Al Fitr’s revelation beginning on Wednesday, 10 April.

The crescent of Shawwal was sighted in the UAE on Tuesday, marking the start of the holy festival across the country.

Eid Al Fitr translates to “Feast of Unwelcoming” and is one of the most important holidays in the Islamic calendar. During Ramadan, Muslims devote time to fasting, prayers and charity. The last night of the holy month is marked by special evening prayers.

On the first day of the holiday, families often gather for festive prayers, exchange greetings, wear new clothes, give gifts to children and share festive meals.
