Well, I've enjoyed Ramadan and will miss it as it comes to a close.

Was away for the first two weeks in the free world, but have enjoyed my return. Interesting working hours which seems to involve leaving at 4pm to go home and smash the misses, before cooking dinner, walking the dog in absolute peace along the creek and then resuming work. Did an additional 9pm-12am shift last night. Genuinely love Ramadan - shame it's not longer.

As for the last 10 days, they are probably my favourite as everyone is in the swing of the upside down day and are even more fearful then usual of my small dog.

I doubt they will have a dry Eid given the Russia vs KSA game.

I think its Arafat day that is dry, that's just before the second Eid holiday?

I'm devastated that it's finishing, doing 8hr days has been pure luxury. The Ramanap is going to be missed.

Yeah, don't think either Eid is dry, you're right it's another day near it. I think...

I personally love Ramadan. It's the only time of year that the office actually feels normal rather than an engineering sweatshop.

Apparently you get ten times the credit for prayers offered on that night and the gates of hell are closed. ...
1) The Mosque near Jumeirah Islands at the south end of JLT?

2) That is the Isra Wal Miraj for which you get a separate holiday, around 2 weeks before Ramadan starts.
As for the higher credit prayers (actually its a lot more than 10 times !), it is one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan, 27th is the most popular guess, but you are right in that it could be any of the 10 days
