Ramadan is a holy month in Islam that is observed by Muslims worldwide. The UAE is a predominantly Muslim country, and Ramadan is observed with great fervor and devotion by its residents. In the UAE, Ramadan is an important time of year, and the country offers several benefits to its citizens and residents during this time. Here are some of the benefits offered during Ramadan in the UAE.

Reduced Working Hours & Remote Work Options

During Ramadan, the UAE government reduces working hours for both the public and private sectors by two hours. This allows employees to have more time to observe Ramadan rituals, such as praying and breaking fast with family and friends. This year, the authorities have slashed the working hours to 9 am till 2.30 pm, according to an advisory quoted in the Arabic daily Al Bayan.


Ramadan is a time for giving, and the UAE government encourages this by organizing charity events and programs. Many individuals and businesses also donate to charity during this time. These events are organized in the form of food drives and other initiatives to help those in need during the holy month.
