The head of the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission (CSC), Abdulaziz Al-Zebin, has declared that Thursday, May 5, 2016, would be an official non-working public holiday in Kuwait on account of the upcoming annual Kuwaiti public holiday for the Ascension of Prophet Muhammad Israa wal Meraj.

The aforementioned announcement that Thursday, May 5, 2016, would be an official non-working public holiday in Kuwait on account of the upcoming annual Kuwaiti public holiday for the Ascension of Prophet Muhammad Israa wal Meraj, follows the common (2014-05-14, 2011-06-27, 2009-07-09, 2008-07-09 and 2007-08-04), but not systematic (2015-05-08, 2013-06-14 and 2012-05-11), practice by the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission of moving the date of the public holiday for the Israa and Meraj annual public holiday.

The weekend in Kuwait changed from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, in 2007 (2007-06-03).
