MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–Like other places in the country, the residents of Tugaya town also celebrated Eid’l Fitr or Feast of Ramadan peacefully and happily.

The faces of the residents showed joy and happiness as they went to the masjid to offer their prayers because finally, the day of festivity has arrived.

Like the rest of the residents, Asmar Adapun also celebrated Eid’l Fitr with joy with his family.

“Alhamdulillah it was really great. I was really happy. Somehow naramdaman natin yung essence or yung message ng Ramadhan through celebrating the Eid’l Fitr,” he said.

But Asmar also can’t help feeling sad because he knows Muslims have to wait for more months before the next Ramadhan.

At the end of Eid’l Fitr prayer, some residents of Tugaya hug and ask each other’s forgiveness. (JND/PIA-10 Lanao del Sur)

“Ramadhan has brought us light and joy. It has taught us so many lessons in life and as Muslim. It’s also saddening to us na tapos na yung Ramadhan. So, mahalaga ang Eid’l Fitr kahit papaano natutumbasan yung lungkot. We are able to heal from the sadness na nararamdaman natin sa pagtatapos ng Ramadhan,” he added.

[Ramadhan has brought us light and joy. It has taught us so many lessons in life and as Muslims. It’s also saddening to us that Ramadhan is over. So, Eid’l Fitr is important because somehow it balances the sadness. We are able to heal from the sadness we feel at the end of Ramadhan.]

According to him, one of the reasons why they are celebrating the Eid’l Fitr is because it is one of the Sunnahs (a term for the traditions and practices of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that constitute a model for Muslims to follow.

Some of the activities Muslims do on this day are praying, visiting relatives and friends, family gatherings, and forgiving each other. (JND/PIA-10 Lanao del Sur)
