The American President Donald Trump expressed his wish for a blessed and peaceful Ramadan to all Muslims, in the United States and in the world.
“For millions of people around the world, this holy month is an opportunity to renew and strengthen their faith through rigorous fasting, religious prayer, thoughtful meditation, reading the Quran and acts of charity,” Trump said in a message on the occasion, noting that “these acts are closely aligned with the universal values which the Islamic faith promotes – peace, kindness, love and respect for others.
“In recent months, we have seen how important the power of prayer can be in difficult times,” the White House Resident continued, with reference to the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Today, as the holy month of Ramadan begins, I pray that those who observe this sacred month will find comfort and fulfillment in their faith,” he said. The holy month of Ramadan begins on Friday in the United States, the associations and representative authorities of Muslims in America announced.
