A circular has recently been given by the Government of Dubai and Dubai Police declaring a dry night in Dubai this week on the event of Isra Wal Mi’raj (Night Journey and Ascension).
This year, Isra Wal Mi’raj falls on Thursday, March 11, 2021 and as per the circular, no alcoholic drinks will be served inside Dubai between 5.30pm on Wednesday, March 10 until 6.30pm on Thursday, March 11 to mark the event. Along these lines, observe in case you’re arranging a night out.
Isra Wal Mi’raj in English means the Night Journey and Ascension is a day seen on the 27th day of the long stretch of Rajab – the seventh month of the Islamic calendar.
The occasion marks the night that Allah (God) took Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) on a two-section journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and afterward to paradise and the journey is loaded with numerous marvels and wonders. His journey is recalled and honored on Isra and Mi’raj.
In any case, it would appear that it won’t be a long end of the week for UAE inhabitants as Isra Wal Mi’raj is excluded from the rundown of public holidays that was reported for 2021.
We will tell you notwithstanding if an authority a minute ago declaration reporting a public holiday is delivered.
Here’s an explainer: during dry night, no liquor is served for 25 hours. This applies to all outlets including hotels, which implies you will not be served alcoholic drinks by any stretch of the imagination.
No liquor will be shown in bars of restaurants either and a few outlets stay shut for the whole time frame.
