Arafat Day, the day Muslims stand on Mount Arafat in Makkah as part of their pilgrimage, will fall on September 11. It will be followed by three days of Eid celebrations, which will begin on September 12 and last until September 14, reported Kuwait Times.

Thursday, September 15 will also be a holiday because it stands between two holidays.
