The holy month of Ramadan is a period of spirituality, reflection and rejoicing for Muslims here and around the world. It is a time to honor the traditions of the Muslim faith, and an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate the tradition of pluralism, tolerance, diversity, and religious freedom embedded in the very fabric of our Constitution and our history.
“In the weeks to come, let us each reaffirm our commitment to the core values of all faiths: advancing justice and pursuing peace; giving to charity and working toward the common good; and treating others with dignity and respect.
“To all who observe Ramadan, may this month bring joy, wisdom, and countless blessings to you and your families. Ramadan Mubarak.
