Day 5: What Are the Days of the Week?

Continuing with the light weekend..Here are the days of the week in Arabic.

The week also begins on Sunday. However, being a lunar calendar, the Islamic days of the week are similar to the Jewish days in that they start after sunset, not at 12am like the Gregorian calendar. So, Saturday 8:30pm on the Gregorian calendar would technically be the start of the next day on the Islamic calendar.
