Isko Moreno airs message of prosperity to Muslims
MANILA, Philippines – Manila Mayor-elect Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Wednesday expressed hope that the commemoration of Eid’l Fitr or the end of the holy and fasting month of Ramadan would rekindle hopes for a more prosperous life for Muslims.
“Nais ko pong ipaabot ang aking pagbati sa mga kapatid nating Muslim sa kanilang pagdiriwang ng Eid’l Fitr ngayong araw,” Domagoso said in a statement.
“Nawa’y ang pagtatapos ng Ramadan ay magbigay ng panibagong pag-asa na makakamit natin ang maunlad na pamumuhay para sa lahat,” he added.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset as part of their religious tradition.
