Senator Loren Legarda's Message for Muslims Celebrating Eid'l Adha

"We greet our Muslim brothers and sisters as they celebrate the Eid'l Adha. As a one nation, we must set aside our religious differences and join Filipino Muslims in observing this Feast of Sacrifice--the importance of which we have emphasized through Republic Act 9849 that declares the day of Eid'l Adha as a national holiday.

This feast commemorates Prophet Abraham's willingness to obey Allah even to the extent of sacrificing his son, Ishmael. May this act of faith continue to guide our Muslim brothers and sisters in leading fruitful lives and strengthen their dedication in contributing to the development of their communities and our nation as a whole."
