The city of Khorfakkan in the Emirate of Sharjah, specifically at Shark Island near Khorfakkan Port, which is the easternmost point of the country, will precede the capital, Abu Dhabi, by about eight minutes for the start of fasting and breakfast while in Al Ghuwaifat and Al Sila, the westernmost points of the country, fasting and breakfast will begin approximately 12 minutes later than the capital.

Therefore, the time difference will be 20 minutes, in which Khorfakkan will be ahead of Ghuwaifat for the start of fasting at dawn and breakfast at sunset, he further added.
