Thousands Of Muslims Showed Up At The Quirino Grandstan To Join The Annual Eid’l Fitr Celebration
EID AL FITR – Thousands of Muslims showed up to celebrate the annual Muslim festival “Eid’l Fitr” at the Quirino Grandstand.
Recently, the president made the declaration that the celebration of Eid’l Fitr on June 5 will be a national holiday. Therefore, classes are suspended for a day.
The set schedule for Eid’l Fitr celebration is today (June 5, 2019). However, some of our Muslim countrymen went ahead earlier and followed Saudi Arabia’s schedule.
About 7000 Muslims, gathered yesterday to participate in prayers honoring their Deity.
Today, local police reported that there were about 10,000 people at the Quirino Grandstand for the Eid’l Fitr celebration.
In a Twitter post by DZMM Teleradyo, a video of thousands of Muslims gathered in what seems like a mass prayer was featured.
In the video, participants of the annual event can be seen doing religious acts:

This religious holiday is celebrated annually by millions of Muslims around the globe. This ends the mark of Ramadan – or the holy month in Islam that was set for fasting.
Eid is the first and also the only day in the month of Shawwal when Muslims are no longer permitted to fast. Shawwal is the the tenth month of the lunar-based Islamic calendar.
There are about 1.6 billion Muslims following the traditional celebration around the world.
Muslims participate in the activities during the festival Eid to send thanks to Allah. They thank Allah for letting their obligations be done by them through fasting.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
