Emirati culture mainly revolves around Islam and traditional Arab culture. The influence of Islamic and Arab culture can be found in the architecture of the region, music, clothing, cuisine and lifestyle. Muslims are called to prayer five times a day from the minarets of the mosques. Since 2006, the weekend has been from Friday to Sunday, as a compromise between the sanctity of Friday for Muslims and the Western Saturday / Sunday weekend.
