August 12, 2019, Monday has been declared a holiday throughout the country in observance of Eid’l Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, according to Senator Bong Go, quoting Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.


The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos earlier recommended to the Palace to declare August 12 a holiday to allow Muslim Filipinos “ample time” to celebrate Eid’l Adha.

The NCMF said the Eid’l Adha will actually begin on August 11 but Republic Act 9849 allows the subsequent Monday to be declared a holiday in the event that Eid’l Adha falls on a Sunday.

Eid'l Adha celebrates the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael in submission to Allah's command, before he was stopped by Allah.

It is one of two of the greatest most important holidays on the Muslim calendar, the other being Eid'l Fitr, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

Eid'l Adha lasts four days and celebrates the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage by millions of Muslims around the world to Mecca.
