The British report said that a Gulf country is considering changing the weekly leave from Friday and Saturday to Saturday and Sunday, with working days from Monday to Friday.
Some Islamic countries have made their weekly holiday on Saturday and Sunday, with Friday being a half day of work, and working hours will end shortly before Friday prayer, while some countries have delayed the timing of Friday prayer by an hour.
The report, published by the British newspaper "The Times", says that the Gulf countries have embarked on many reforms in several areas, adding that the UAE is currently considering making the work week from Monday to Friday in line with the global economy.
The UAE decided to change the weekend to Friday and Saturday in May 2006 and the decision entered into force in September of the same year.
Saudi Arabia also changed the weekly holiday from Thursday and Friday to Friday and Saturday in 2013.
