Stores at 138 petrol stations - including Emarat, Eppco and Enoc - will also not sell cigarettes, according to Dubai Municipality.
All restaurants and cafes in Dubai are also requested to co-operate with the municipality and participate in the campaign by stopping the sale of shisha for a period of 12 hours.
