Don't tell me that you are talking about K.S.A, otherwise, it means you are talking about 'my weekend'

KSA talk about doing this from time to time, but never seem to implement it.

The only bizarre thing is why it took Oman so long to move into the 20th century. Hopefully, it won't be too long before the UAE leads the region into the 21st century by having civilised Saturday & Sunday weekends. By then the KSA will still be back in the Middle Ages.

You really are thick if you think there is the remotest chance of that happening, mental one.

Pakistan has a saturday/sunday weekend. This means that everybody, except the non muslim western expats, is allowed to have most of Friday off to pray and then two days for the weekend.

That's as maybe, but I very much doubt it'll ever happen in the UAE. Pakistan's weekend is a legacy of colonial times.
