How Dubai will celebrate Eid Al-fitr

Eid al-Fitr could fall on Saturday, April 22, according to the International Astronomy Centre. However, the exact date will only be confirmed based on the moon sighting. The holiday literally translates as "festival of breaking fast" and is celebrated during the first 3 days of Shawwal, which is the tenth month of the Muslim calendar. On the first day of the festival, at daybreak, Muslims perform a common prayer, which is called "salat". It is common to visit one's friends and family, wear new clothes and give presents during Eid al-Fitr.
