Ramadan ends today as PGMA declares a holiday

By Rose B. Palacio

Davao City (24 October) -- Ulama League of the Philippines regional chairman Ahleem Mahmod Adilao said the observance of the Muslim holy month (October) of Ramadan in the Philippines ends today, October 24, 2006.

Chairman Adilao hailed Davao City Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte with his relentless support he has bestowed on the all Muslim Mosques and Muslim communities by providing continues food assistance in the form of rice,noodles, various foodstuffs and commodities.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. It is during this month that Muslims observe the Fast of Ramadan.

Adilao said that during this month of Ramadan, we used to recite more prayers. Muslims usually pray five times a day and kneel 24 times during prayers.

During this month, it is believed that God will forgive sins and we feel reborn, he said.

Ramadan is also a time of worship and contemplation and for strengthening, family and community ties.

The end of today’s Ramadan is also called the Breaking of the Fast or Eid Al-Fitr – which has been declared as a national holiday. (PIA-XI) [top]
