Washington, May 15 (Just News):The US President Donald Trump on Tuesday greeted Muslims observing Ramadan and said Ramadan is a time of self-reflection intended to deepen one’s spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides.
In his message on the occasion of the start of the holy month, Trump said “In this spirit of thanksgiving and reflection, those observing Ramadan can strengthen our communities, help those in need, and serve as good examples for how to live a holy life.”
“With the rising of tonight’s moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the world,” Trump said.
During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad through fellowship and prayer. Many observe this holy time by fasting, performing acts of charity, reciting prayers, and reading the Quran.
Noting that Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life, Trump said “In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice. Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government. By doing so, the Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul.”
“As so many people unite to celebrate Ramadan, Melania and I join in the hope for a blessed month. Ramadan Mubarak,” the president added.
