More than 2,000 Muslims gathered in Quirino Grandstand in Manila on Wednesday, June 28, to celebrate Eid’l Adha, according to the crowd estimate of Ermita Station Police.

Eid’l Adha, the feast of Sacrifice is the second and the largest of the two main holidays celebrated in Islam.

On the other hand, President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. sent his best regards and emphasized the values of sacrifice, selflessness, and the spirit of peace and mutual respect.

“Truly, our nation is a land of plentiful creeds that is further nurtured by Muslim Filipinos who help weave our rich tapestry of diversity. Let their devotion to these beliefs shine above all throughout the festivities and further strengthen the bond among our families, friends, and communities,” said the President.

On the first day of Eid al-Adha, those who can afford are required to sacrifice an animal and distribute a set percentage of its meat to those less fortunate.

This is done in symbolic remembrance of the Prophet Ibrahim who, according to Islamic tradition, was asked to sacrifice his son Ismail by God.
