Eid al-Fitr announced
29 June 2016

Roughly translated, Eid al-Fitr means “festival of breaking the fast”. The holiday is a celebration that marks the end of Ramadan, which started on June 6th. The Ramadan is a time to show kindness to others and love for Allah.

Eid al- Fitr begins automatically after the last day of Ramadan, on the first day of Shawwal,  the 10th month of de Islamic moon calendar. In 2016 it is predicted to begin on Thursday July 7. Holidays vary between two and three days, so expect a long weekend. The date is subject to moon-sighting and could change. The Jordex Global office in Abu Dhabi will be closed during Eid al-Fitr, but available for urgent matters.
