Appeal To The Muslim Representatives In The House of Congress

Greeting of peace! I’m Shiekh Abdulwakil S. Tanjilil, Deputy Mufti for Region 9 and Palawan.

I would like to express the sentiment of Muslim populace in Region 9…There are so many Muslim pilgrims who are having a hard time acquiring a Hajj passport, because of the policy of DFA ZAMBOANGA, policies exclusive only here in Zamboanga City.

Kahit mayrun na birth certificate (NSO) marriage contract (NSO), NBI CLEARANCE, POLICE CLEARANCE, BARANGAY CLEARANCE kung walang DIGITALIZED I.D. hindi nila i -process. At pag may ID naman hihingi pa sila ng ibang requirements. Under the law, a Muslim Pilgrim must not be given a hard time acquiring a HAJJ PASSPORT. HAJJ is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, and every Muslim who can afford it must perform HAJJ. Unfortunately because the DFA Zamboanga is giving us Muslim Pilgrims a hard time acquiring a Hajj Passport, Hajj has become almost impossible. This is a clear Discrimination of our Muslim rights. Our right to practice our religious observance.

In behalf of Muslims populace, I’m appealing to THE MUSLIM REPRESENTATIVES IN THE HOUSE OF CONGRESS, to the MEDIA to help solve this problem.

Under THE REPUBLIC ACT NO. 8293 Sec.2
MUSLIM FILIPINOS, TRAVELLING FOR THE PURPOSE OF HAJJ, WHO ARE UNABLE TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ISSUANCE OF REGULAR PASSPORT, MAY BE ISSUED A PASSPORT VALID FOR ONE (1) TRIP ONLY UPON COMPLIANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS :

1- Endorsement from the Office of Muslim Affairs which issues a certificate of tribal affiliation and signs a personal guarantee form.
2-Joint Affidavit of two (2) disinterested persons who are familiar with the birth details of the applicants.

PLEASE DON’T STOP OUR ISLAMIC PRACTICE. BECAUSE OUR LIFE IS NOTHING WITHOUT ISLAM.
