Yesterday Diwali celebrations began in Dubai.

Fireworks lit Dubai skies to recognise the Hindu religious festival of lights and HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai asked everyone to share celebrations on social media with #UAEdiwali...and of course THOUSANDS obliged.

"I encourage you to share your pictures of Diwali celebrations in the United Arab Emirates!"

The Hindu population in the UAE is between 6% and 10% and the social media community came together to share the joyful celebration online

How amazing is this! Homes throughout the city were decorated with lights

'This is how me and my family celebrate Diwali'

The Burj Khalifa put on an incredible show

Even schools got involved

SO beautiful!
