☷On the Occasion of Eid al Fitr United States Department of State
U.S. Department of State ( By Press Release office)

On behalf of the United States of America , I extend my warmest greetings to Muslims and all those celebrating Eid al - Fitr in the United States and around the globe . This celebration marks the completion of Ramadan , a month of fasting , reflection , charity , and generosity . Eid morning begins with families and communities coming together for prayer services at mosques and community centers , followed by festivities and feasts with friends and neighbors . Cultures worldwide have their own unique and vibrant Eid traditions , as diverse as Muslim communities themselves . During this time of compassion and giving , we cannot forget those who are unable to celebrate this special holiday from the safety and comfort of their homes or with their communities , due to displacement by war , violence , or persecution . The United States will continue efforts to pursue truth , justice , and accountability for members of religious minority groups suffering around the world . Later this month , I look forward to hosting an Eid - al - Fitr reception at the State Department , where I will get the chance to break bread with leaders from across the Muslim community and reflect on the past year and our shared values . Eid Mubarak to all celebrating this joyous day .
