Default Prophet Muhammad's Birthday (PBUH)

Anyone know if there is going to be a public holiday on Thursday or Sunday in Abu Dhabi? Bahrain has already annouced a public holiday for Sunday...

I'd think extremely unlikely - all previous holidays that fell on a weekend were not moved to the nearest workday...

Government has just confirmed no extra public holiday, see this link: http://www.wam.org.ae/servlet/Satell...T-LEN-FullNews

And I've just called up my local watering hole, and they're closing on Thursday night as it's dry
Party at home it is then...

In Bahrain, everybody will have it off on Sunday (snigger, titter). This is standard practice here when a holiday falls on a weekend day.

Bars and restaurants will remain open as usual.
