The military Muslim personnel were joined by their families and other civilians living near the camp in an early morning prayer in front of the 6th ID Grandstand yesterday.
This year’s celebration was led by Assistant Division Commander for Reservist and Retirees Affairs, Colonel Carlito Bueno, who greeted everyone with Eid Mubarak or blessing on their celebration.
“Ang kahulugan ng pag-aayuno sa Islam ay isang uri ng gawaing pagsamba sa Allah sa pamamagitan ng pagpigil at pag-iwas mula sa pagkain, inumin, pakikipagtalik, at sa iba pang nakakasira sa pag-aayuno, simula sa pagsapit ng madaling araw hanggang sa paglubog ng araw,” said Col. Bueno.
Col. Bueno, in his message, outlined the purpose of fasting, which is considered the holiest among the Islamic celebrations.
The 6ID Commander, Major General Cirilito E. Sobejana, extended his greetings to the Muslim brothers and sisters of the 6th ID and stakeholders and thanked them for choosing the 6th ID camp to celebrate Eid’l Fitr.
“May the blessings of Allah fill your life with happiness and this worthy celebration will touch the love and peace to each and every one of us,” expressed MGen Sobejana.
