In accordance with Republic Act No. 9849 which declares Eid al-Adha a national regular holiday, President Duterte issued Proclamation No. 1189, setting the date of the Muslim holy day on July 20.

Eid al-Adha, one of the two major feasts of Islam, commemorates the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to God’s command.
