Considered as “one of the two great feasts of Islam,” the other being Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha commemorates the sacrifice made by Abraham in obedience to Allah’s command.

The Muslim festival is traditionally celebrated by having a feast with family and friends.

This year’s celebration, however, is expected to be more somber due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The NCMF estimates that Muslims make up around 10 percent of the Philippines’ 100-million population.
