Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice is the second and the largest of the two main holidays celebrated in Islam (the other being Eid al-Fitr). It honours the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son, Ishmael (Ismail), as an act of obedience to God’s command. However, before Abraham could sacrifice his son in the name of God, and because of his willingness to do so, God provided him with a ram to sacrifice in his son’s place. In commemoration of this intervention, animals are ritually sacrificed. Part of their meat is consumed by the family that offers the animal, while the rest of the meat is distributed to the poor and the needy. Sweets and gifts are given, and extended family members typically visit and are welcomed. The day is also sometimes called the Greater Eid. The celebration of Eid, however, is not mentioned in the Qur’an.

In the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijja and lasts for four days. In the international (Gregorian) calendar, the dates vary from year to year, shifting approximately 11 days earlier each year.

Umm Suqiem is a locality in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Umm Suqiem is located in western Dubai, along the Jumeirah Beach coastline. It is bordered to the north by Jumeirah, to the south by Al Sufouh, and to the west by Al Safa, Al Manara and Umm Al Sheif.

Umm Suqiem comprises three sub-communities – — Umm Suqiem 1, Umm Suqiem 2 and Umm Suqiem 3 — which house affluent residential communities and tourist attractions. Umm Al Sheif Road separates Umm Suqiem from Jumeirah while routing D 65 (Al Manara Road) separates Umm Suqiem 1 from Umm Suqiem 2 and Al Thanya Road separates Umm Suqiem 2 from Umm Suqiem 3. Al Thanya Road is the most important road in all of Umm Suqeim because of the residents that live on it.

Several important tourist attractions and commercial centers are located in Umm Suqiem. Emirates International School, Suqiem Public Park and Same Day Dental Clinic are located in Umm Suqeim 2, while Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Burj Al Arab and Wild Wadi Water Park is located in Umm Suqiem 3, along the sub-community Jumeirah Beach coast. Schools in the area include Emirates International School – Jumeirah, and King’s Dubai School, a private primary school with around 900 students enrolled.

Kite Beach is one of Dubai’s most popular beaches – perfect for sun-seekers, foodies and sports enthusiasts alike. If you’re serious about your watersports and want to test your skills on one of the best free beaches in Dubai, Kite Beach has plenty of challenges. Located just off the Jumeirah neighbourhood, you’ll find high-quality equipment available to rent along the sand.

Try kitesurfing, wakeboarding or stand-up paddleboarding, unless staying on dry land is more your thing – you’re bound to find a game of beach volleyball to join, along with a welcoming vibe and plenty of new friends to make in the process. If you’re looking for a more chilled out vibe, this beachfront exudes adrenaline as much as it does serenity and a casual atmosphere.

Want to walk or jog along the coastline? Kite Beach’s 14km track is the perfect spot. How about swimming at night? Thanks to powerful new floodlights and round-the-clock lifeguards, parts of Kite Beach allow swimming from sunset to sunrise, as well as during the day. Whatever beachside activity you wish to enjoy, this stretch of sand promises to provide amazing views of the majestic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah against the horizon.

You’ll also find some casual bites to eat right off the shore at the shops and food trucks – don’t miss your chance to grab tasty sliders and a lotus shake at the ever-popular SALT. To make the most of your outing, get a beach day pass with Sole Mio for access to comfortable sun loungers and free food delivery from the surrounding eateries.
