The announcement called for a three-day paid holiday starting from Ramadan 29 to Shawwal 3.
Ramadan 29 is on Friday, May 22 and Shawwal 3 is on Tuesday, May 26, which means like the public sector, the private sector will enjoy a five-day break.
However, the exact dates are still just an estimation, because both the start and end date of the holy month of Ramadan depend on the sighting of the crescent moon.
Eid Al Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and is a time for celebration across the world.
