Eid-al-Fitr 2016


Muslims all over the world this year will celebrate the Eid-al-Fitr festival this first week of July in observing the end of Ramadan 2016

In connection to this, President Rodrigo Duterte has signed Proclamation #6 declaring July 6, 2016 (Wednesday) as a nationwide holiday. Ramadan officially began last June 6, according to a calendar provided by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF).

Eid’l Fitr is a national holiday as mandated by Republic Act (RA) 9177, which came into effect in 2002 or early during the term of then-President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
