    Message of the Vice President on the Observance of Eid al-Adha

    We wish our Muslim brothers and sisters a meaningful celebration of Eid al-Adha.

    When faced with adversities, may you always look inside yourselves and tap into a faith as constant and unwavering as that of Ibrahim’s—to draw strength and courage from this amid uncertainties.

    Sacrifice is an inherent part of life, and over the years, our people have shown its capacity to be selfless in service of others. Through strife and changing weather, the ebb and flow of these extraordinary times, we have seen how Filipinos give of themselves and of what they have, if only to help their brothers and sisters who are in need. This is the Filipino spirit that we know and admire.

    We continue to pray for Marawi City and for its people. Peace has been restored here through various forms of sacrifice—of our troops, of various sectors and organizations, of thousands of families displaced by the clash. We need to work together, with the best interest of its people in mind, to help Marawi rise back on its feet in the soonest time possible.

    To our Muslim brothers and sisters, may Allah look with favor upon your personal sacrifices. And we hope that as we all navigate through difficult times, we can always keep in mind that this is what makes us stronger as a nation—that we show up for others, that we can cast aside differences and unite for a single greater purpose.

    Eid Mubarak!
