In solidarity with Muslims all over the world, the UP Institute of Islamic Studies once again hosted the Eidl Fitr prayer last June 05, 2019 at the Bahay Alumni of the University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City. Prof. Julkipli Wadi, former Dean of the Institute led the prayer and gave the sermon. In his sermon, he enjoined Muslims to love one another and be hopeful in spite of the hardships they are facing as Allah promises in the Holy Qur’an, “After each difficulty comes ease.”
More than 700 Muslims from various places in Metro Manila joined the prayer. Refreshment were sponsored by Atty. Mehol Sadain and family. The UP IIS annual hosting of Eid Prayers is the culmination of the yearly Iftar program which the Institute regularly organizes in partnership with various donors and sponsors.
