Schools across Dubai will close from Thursday for the Eid Al Fitr holiday.

Muslims, who will be breaking fast at Iftar in the evening throughout the period, may well have big plans for festivities and family gatherings on Eid 2018. Depending on when Eid begins, Shawwal 3 will either coincide with Sunday, June 17, or Monday, June 18. In short, it's not the news we were hoping for.

Countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh started observing fast from May 16 this year. Sundown on that day is when Ramadan officially ends, so check your local sunset time.

Each year Muslims celebrate both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha - but the names often get shortened to just "Eid" and that's why it can be confusing.

There are some exemptions from fasting: you can eat and drink if you are suffering from an illness, travelling, are elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic, chronically ill or menstruating.

Following the sighting of the moon, people seen greeting each other and began celebrating Eid. The festival is celebrated over three days and is also called Choti Eid.
