UAE 2015 Prophet's Birthday 1st Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Sunday, December 28, 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, Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi, issued a circular stating that the annual public sector holiday for the upcoming Milad Al Nabi (Prophet's Birthday) would be on Saturday, January 3, 2015.

In a separate announcement, the UAE's Minister of Labour, Saqr Ghobash, announced that Saturday, January 3, 2015, would also be a paid non-working public holiday for the UAE's private sector.

In the past (05-Jan-2014 and 07-Feb-2011), but in contrast to today's aforementioned announcement, and 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 had often moved the date of the UAE's Prophet's Birthday public holiday around to adjoin a nearby weekend.

Note that, in 2015, the Milad Al Nabi (Prophet's Birthday) will occur twice, once in early January, and once around December 24, depending on the countries.
