Eid’l Fitr Mubarak!
The National Library of the Philippines joins the Filipino-Muslim community and the whole nation in the observance of Eid’l Fitr, or the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. It is a Muslim celebration of thanksgiving to Allah and marks the end of the 30-day fasting from sunrise to sunset.
This year, May 3 has been declared a national holiday through Proclamation No. 1356, s. 2022 in order to bring the religious and cultural significance of the Eid’l Fitr to the fore of national consciousness.
