PRESIDENT Ferdinand Marcos Jr. urged the Muslim Filipinos to grow in wisdom and fortitude amid challenges.

In his message for the Eid’I Adha or Feast of Sacrifice, Marcos said the solemn occasion offers the nation a unique opportunity to ruminate on the life and tale of Ibrahim whose steadfast faith and unconditional love for Allah have become the core virtues of Islamic teaching.

“As we understand the significance of this commemoration, we feel deep within ourselves that, in nurturing our relationship with others and the Almighty, we are strengthened by our past and fueled with lessons to face tomorrow with grit and resilience,” Marcos added.

Marcos said there is gain in surrender and the act of letting go, even of persons and things they value the most.

“We will find a greater sense of purpose in uplifting the lives of others and enriching the facets that make our dreams and endeavors meaningful,” Marcos said.

And through dependence on God and on life of prayer, President Marcos expressed hope that Filipinos will have the clarity of mind and kindness of heart to overcome the trials that prevent them from achieving true peace.

“Let us continue to radiate goodness to those around us, confident that—with the right intention and conduct—the true, the good, and the beautiful will prosper now and in the years to come,” Marcos said.
