June 5 Declared Holiday For Eid’l Fitr To Mark The End Of Ramadan

Another Holiday is to be expected this coming month of June 2019. This was after President Rodrigo Duterte has declared June 5 a non-working holiday nationwide in observance of Eid’l Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan, Malacañang said Wednesday.

The statement of President Duterte was confirmed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea. Then it was followed by a recommendation from the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos.

For those who are not yet familiar with Eid’l Fitr. This is an event that Muslims celebrate. It is also said that Eid’l Fitr is celebrated by the Muslim world for three days after the end of Ramadan, Islam’s holy month, which calls for spiritual reflection through praying, fasting, and abstaining from sinful behavior.

This season on a Muslim’s life is very sacred and important. This is part of their Ramadan that started last May 6, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar when Muslims commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad.

There are really so much beauty on Muslim’s culture and religion. This Holiday might be a great way for you to be able to explore their history and culture. On this way we will also be able to know at heart these celebrations that they have. Most especially that we non-Muslims will have to chance to enjoy the day to rest from work or from school.

For some I know most of you are planning your quick getaway with your families and friends to enjoy the last few weeks of summer season here in our country. Maybe some will go to the beach or just stay in a hotel and swim in a swimming pool.

Yet whatever we planned to do for this coming June 5, 2019 always remember to keep safe and wherever we go always put in mind to respect the Muslim’s celebration.

What will you do this coming June 5, 2019?
