Last Tuesday Nov. 9,2010 President Benigno S. Aquino III declare Tuesday November 16, 2010 as a National Holiday in observance of Eid’l Adha or Feast of Sacrifice RA 9849.

Eid-Ul-Adha is observed after the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.
Its significance is in commemoration of the command give by Allah to Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his first born son Ishmael to Him.

“Eid-Ul-Adha is a day of remembrance. Even in the most joyful times, the Muslim makes a fresh start of the day by a session of congregational prayers to Allah in an open space. Muslims use the occasion to pray to Allah and to glorify His name to demonstrate the remembrance of His grace and favours. Muslims also remember the deceased by praying for their souls to rest in peace. The needy and vulnerable in society are also remembered by showing them sympathy and consolation.” 1
