Private sector workers won't get an extra day off in honour of Al Isra’a Wal Mi’raj this weekend.
The Islamic holiday falls on a Saturday this year and many workers had wondered if they would get a day off on Thursday or Sunday instead.
But the government has been telling companies that will not be the case this year.
There had been a degree of uncertainty as many of the UAE public holidays are dependent on the phases of the moon.
Abu Dhabi will mark the holiday with a dry day, however.
Restaurants and bars in the capital will only be serving soft drinks from 6pm on Friday April 13 until 7pm on Saturday April 14.
