CITY OF ILAGAN, Isabela, July 17 (PNA) — Thousands of Islam religion-bred Maranaos have trooped to Mosques in the province to join their fellows worldwide celebrating the end of the 30-day Ramadan, the holy Islamic month, today, Friday.
Kahlil Mamlain, Muslim Imam (priest) of Islam, said they have been annually celebrating Eid Ul Fitr or Festival of Breaking of the Fast to mark the end of a 30-day fasting among Islams.
“This is our way of adhering to Allah’s rules…by doing His wishes for us,” Mamlain added.
In Ilagan City alone, at least 1,000 Islam devotees have trooped to Mosques and later ate together in front of the worship grounds by partaking of native and halal or Islam-approved food such as glutinous rice, chicken and Saudi Arabian dates, among others. (PNA)
