UAE 2014 Prophet's Birthday Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Sunday, January 5, 2014)

Source: Emirates News Agency (WAM)

The UAE's Minister of Education and Chairman of Board of Directors of the Federal Authority for Human Resources, Humaid Mohamed Al Qattami, issued a circular stating that the annual public sector holiday for the upcoming Milad Al Nabi (Prophet's Birthday) would be on Sunday, January 12, 2014.

In a separate announcement, the UAE's Minister of Labour, Saqr Ghobash, announced that Sunday, January 12, 2014, would also be a paid non-working public holiday for the UAE's private sector.

In the past (07-Feb-2011), as in the aforementioned announcement, possibly due to the Prophet's Birthday public holiday being considered less religious (even sacrilegious, in some Muslim countries, such as Saudi Arabia), the UAE has moved the date of the UAE's Prophet's Birthday public holiday around to adjoin a nearby weekend.
