While Saudi Arabia and local media have reported that the first day of Eid Al Adha will be on Monday, 12 September, the UAE hasn't announced holidays for the same.

Eid Al Adha is usually marked a day after Arafat Day - one where Muslim pilgrims stand on Mount Arafat as part of their pilgrimage. This year Arafat Day is on 11 September.
