What is Eid Al Adha?

Eid Al Adha is the second and the largest of the two holidays celebrated in Islam. It falls on Dhul Hijjah 10 to 12, which, according to astrological calculations, is likely to correspond to Monday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 19 as public holiday. So, those who have a Saturday and Sunday weekend will have a five-day break with work resuming on Thursday, June 20.

Remember though, the confirmation of dates all depend on the sighting of the moon. We’re keeping our eyes on the news and we will let you know as soon as dates are confirmed.
