Ramadan is the ninth month of the Hijri Calendar. It is viewed as the holiest month of the year and annually observing the month of Ramadan is considered one of the most important pillars of Islam. Best Lawyers of Dubai, before this holy month of Ramadan, would like to set out a few changes followed during this month in the UAE and activities which should be prevented during this month.

Following are a few changes which are observed during this month:

  1. Office Working Hours

In accordance with Federal Decree-Law No. 33/2021 On Regulation of Labour Relations and the Cabinet Resolution 1 of 2022, working hours will be reduced by two hours amid Ramadan. Indeed, even non-Muslims are qualified for decreased working hours during Ramadan without a compensation cut.

  1. Fasting Behavior

Reduction in rest time amid Ramadan increases the feeling of drowsiness, which can cause can daytime tiredness and increase accidents on the road. It is encouraged to get sufficient rest, practice consistently and eat dinners at a fixed time to avoid any casualties during this period.

  1. Restaurants Timings

Most Restaurants in UAE adhere to the fasting rules and close business during the day and open after-night supplications. Some restaurants and cafes are open during the day and food can be ordered online to consume.


Common Etiquettes for Non-Muslims

Non-Muslims don't need to fast during Ramadan. Nevertheless, they are restricted from eating, drinking and smoking out in the open amid the fasting hours, and this also includes chewing a piece of gum out in public. 

During this month, it is recommended to dress appropriately, which covers your shoulders and knees. Refrain from wearing sheer garments, uncovering, or excessively tight, especially when visiting open spaces, for example, a shopping centre, iftar tent, or eatery.
