I moved into this apartment and there were no ceiling lights so I bought a standard ceiling lamp from IKEA but I am sure how to connect it.

I have 2 Black wires and 1 yellow wire and the light is connected to a 2 way switch one is near the main door and other one is in same area as the light. The light i got from IKEA have just 2 wires (L) and (N). I dont know which one is live or which one is neutral as I havent tested it. I also want to mention that the building is not too old its like 10 years old and is in UAE, Dubai.

What you show on the lamp is L for the switched supply and N for the neutral.

Is is possible to put the switch in the neutral line theoretically but that can put someone in danger as the lamp will always be live.

Get a multimeter and check out the connections, this is not an opportunity for guesswork.
