    [h=2]UAE to release 676 prisoners to mark Ramadan[/h] By Yahoo! Maktoob
    DUBAI - Work at the UAE federal ministries and departments will be from 9am till 2pm during the holy month of Ramadan, the state news agency WAM said.

    Meanwhile, the working hours of private sector companies will be reduced from eight to six hours during the Holy month of Ramadan, without affecting the salaries of employees, WAM reported.

    Renowned UAE astronomer, Ebrahim al-Jarwan, has predicted that the holy month of Ramadan will start on August 1 and will last for 30 days.

    According to the Sharjah-based astronomer, the Ramadan 'Hilal' (crescent moon) will rise on July 30.

    "It will then take shape 21 hours and 23 minutes later. It will be difficult to sight the moon from the UAE, but Ramadan will start on August 1," Al Jarwan said.

    "The dawn-to-dusk fasting month for Muslims, will last 30 days this year. This means Eid Al Fitr will be on August 31," he added.

    During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food, drink and sensual pleasures from sunrise to sunset and are required to focus on their relationship with god.
