In the Islamic calendar, Arafat Day is observed on the second day of Hajj, which occurs approximately 70 days after Eid Al Fitr in the Islamic calendar. This year, it is anticipated to be on Tuesday, June 27, followed by Eid Al Adha on the next day.
Eid Al Adha is one of the two significant Islamic holidays and is celebrated on the 10th to 12th of Dhul Hijjah. Depending on the moon sighting, this year's holiday may be observed as a public holiday from Wednesday, June 28, to Friday, June 30. Hence, a six-day weekend can be expected.
To maximize the number of days off work, taking Monday, June 26, off work can result in a total of nine days off, from Saturday, June 24, to Sunday, July 2.While the occasion is usually marked with a few days off in both public and private sectors, the exact dates are dependent on the phases of the moon, and the official moon sighting is yet to be confirmed.
