Eid Al Adha 2019 holiday

Based on the Um al-Qura calendar of Saudi Arabia, the Eid’l Adha 2019 Muslim Festival falls on the second week of August. The High Judicial Cout (HJC), however, will soon announce the official date and confirmation after the moon sighting.

Depending on the country or region you are in, the tentative dates are Aug. 11 or 12 this year, as Eid ul Adha falls on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah.

Judging from the declaration of Eid al-Fitr 2019 or Feast of Ramadan this year, the palace proclaimed the second day of the projected dates (June 4 and June 5) as the regular holiday. As such, there is also a possibility that the holiday will be on Aug. 12.

It is worth noting that the school year 2019-2020 of the Department of Education, as stipulated in its DO No. 007, s. 2019, considers August 12 as a regular holiday for the celebration of the Eid’l Adha.

The Proclamation No. 555 for the nationwide holidays for this year also states that the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) has to inform the palace with regard to the actual date the Eidul Adha will fall.

Since Aug. 12 was declared by the palace as a regular holiday, Filipinos are going to have two long weekends for the month of August, which include August 10-12 as well as August 24-26 (National Heroes’ Day). Of course, August 21 is likewise declared special (non-working) holiday as it is the Ninoy Aquino Day.
