#WalangPasok | June 5, 2019 declared Philippine regular holiday for Eid'l Fitr

President Rodrigo Duterte declared June 5, 2019 a regular holiday across the country in observance of Eid'l Fitr or the Feast of Ramadhan.

The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) has recommended to declare Wednesday, June 5, 2019, a national holiday in observance of Eid'l Fitr.


The declaration was made through Proclamation No. 729 signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on Tuesday, May 28.

The observance seeks to encourage the Filipino nation to join Muslim brothers and sisters in peace and harmony in the celebration of the Feast of Ramadhan.

Eid'l Fitr is one of the two greatest feasts of Islam, the other being Eidul Adha, which is also a regular holiday in the country.

Classes are suspended during regular holidays while employees are paid in full even if they do not report for work, and paid in double if they do.
