Isra Wal Mi’raj, which is observed on the 27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab, is set to fall on Thursday, March 11.

In light of this, it’s been announced via a circular from officials in Dubai that a dry night will occur tomorrow night.

From 5.30pm on Wednesday, March 10 to 6.30pm on Thursday, March 11, all licensed venues must cease to serve alcohol for this stated period.

The day known as Isra Wal Mi’raj is also known as ‘the Night Journey’, is in reference to the Prophet Mohammed’s journey from Makkah to Jerusalem, which he did within one night.

While it’s a dry night in Dubai, there is no public holiday for public sector employees or private sector employees.
