The next public holiday in the UAE will be Eid Al Fitr
Al Isra’a wal Miraj, which is expected to fall on Sunday, will not be a public holiday in the UAE.

Isra’a wal Miraj, also known as the Prophet’s Ascension or the Night Journey, marks the journeys of Prophet Mohammed from Makkah to Jerusalem and to heaven in a single night.
The Civil Service Council in Oman has said Sunday will be observed as a public holiday.
