The committee meetings and the upcoming Islamic month of Dhul Qadah. Based on the details provided, it appears that the committees will meet on Sunday, June 18, to observe the crescent sighting for the month of Dhul Qadah.

According to astronomical calculations, Dhul Qadah is expected to have 29 days, and the first day of the subsequent Islamic month, Dhul Hijjah, is anticipated to be on Monday, June 19. It is important to note that Islamic months can consist of either 29 or 30 days, unlike the Gregorian calendar, which has a fixed 31-day cycle for most months.

Additionally, Muslims in the UAE and various other countries typically celebrate Eid Al Adha on the 10th day of Dhul Hijjah. Therefore, based on the provided information, Eid Al Adha would likely be observed around Wednesday, June 28, assuming Dhul Hijjah consists of 30 days.

The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources in the UAE has announced that Eid Al Adha holidays will take place from Dhul Hijjah 9 to 12, according to the Islamic Hijri calendar. Dhul Hijjah 9, which is Arafat Day, is expected to occur on Tuesday, June 27. Following that, there will be three days to observe Eid Al Adha. Including the regular two-day weekend, this will result in a six-day break for public and private sector employees in the UAE, from Tuesday, June 27 to Sunday, July 2. It will be the longest holiday period of the year.

During the holy month of Ramadan and Dhul Hijjah, individuals are encouraged to assist authorities by reporting any sightings of the moon.
