Long weekend expected.

The UAE is expected to mark the birthday anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on November 9, according to a renowned astronomer.

Ibrahim Al Jarwan, member of the Arab Union for Space and Astronomy, said the new moon of the lunar month of Rabi Ul Awwal will be born next Monday, October 28 at 7:38am UAE time.

"As such, Tuesday, October 29, will be the first month of Rabi Ul Awwal 1441 for migration."

"Saturday, November 9, 2019 shall then be the birthday anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as per astronomical calculations."

On September 8, the UAE's Federal Authority for Government Human Resources revised the list of holidays for 2019.

"A holiday for the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been announced. It will be observed on the 12th of Rabi Ul Awwal, 1441."
