In observance of the Holy Month of Ramadan, on April 26, 2021, the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte, thru the Provincial Community Affairs Office headed by Mr. Lyndon G. Calica, started the distribution of rice to the Masjids situated in the different municipalities in the province as a way of Sadaqah or ‘voluntary charity’.
The packs of rice were received by the Imams and were equally distributed to the Jamaa or religious followers for their ‘Plapis’ or the first meal after a day of fasting.
It has been a long-standing tradition of the PGLDN, thru the leadership of Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo together with 1st District Representative, Congressman Mohamad Khalid Quibranza Dimaporo, and the father of peace and development, 2nd District Representative, Congressman Abdullah ‘Bobby’ Dimakuta Dimaporo, to annually give Gantangs of rice to our Muslim brothers and sisters in support of their religious beliefs and to encourage others to give for the sake of giving.
The Imams, together with all our Muslim brothers and sisters, expressed their gratitude to the PGLDN and our good leaders who are continuously finding ways to support and provide assistance to the Muslim Communities in the Province of Lanao del Norte, “The Land of Beauty and Bounty.”
“The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” [Quran, 2: 261] PIO-LDN
