The astronomer explained that Ramadan’s full moon is expected to occur on April 20, 2023, at 8:36 a.m. local time, and the crescent moon of Shawwal will be born at 8:13 a.m. on the same day, setting 22 minutes after sunset, as reported by the local media outlet UAE Barq citing Ibrahim al-Jarwan, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Emirates Astronomy Society.

Should the government confirm the dates, UAE citizens and residents will have a four-day weekend with Friday, April 21, and Monday, April 24, both being public holidays.

Eid-ul-Fitr is an important celebration for Muslims across the globe, signifying the conclusion of the month-long fasting period of Ramadan, during which they abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset.
