Statement of Secretary Martin Andanar on the celebration of Eid’l Fitr

We extend our greetings of peace, joy, and harmony to our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Philippines and across the globe as they celebrate Eid’l Fitr or the Festival of Breaking the Fast.

As the challenges brought by the COVID-19 prevented everyone from sharing meals and praying together throughout the blessed month of Ramadan, Allah’s constant love, affection, and mercy have given you the strength and courage to obey all His commandments, while facing adversities.

May your renewed spiritual attainment strengthen your commitment and dedication to the exemplary Islamic virtues, especially at this time of a global health crisis.

As we continue with our national vaccination program, we ask everyone to continue observing all health measures and protocols, for us to be on our way towards our collective recovery.

We wish you all a meaningful Eid’l Fitr!
