UAE Ramadan Dates Announced

Source: Emirates News Agency (WAM)
Posted: Tuesday, March 19, 2013

The UAE's state news agency WAM, reports on an official announcement by the Sharjah Planetarium at the Department of Culture and Information concerning the dates of the upcoming first day of the Muslim months of Ramadan and of Shawwal (corresponding to the Eid al-Fitr annual public holiday).

The announced dates, however, seem incorrect for the upcoming 2013 Eid al-Fitr public holiday in the UAE, which generally follows the Saudi Umm al-Qora Islamic calendar.
