White House ( By Press Release office)

As Muslims in the United States and around the world conclude the month of Ramadan and celebrate Eid al - Fitr , Jill and I extend our warmest wishes to all who are celebrating this joyous occasion . Eid marks the completion of a holy month dedicated to devotion and reflection , when families and communities come together to celebrate their blessings . And Eid is also an occasion for Muslims to remember all those who are struggling or impacted by poverty , hunger , conflict , and disease , and to recommit to building a better future for all . This year , as we mark Eid al - Fitr , we hold in our hearts the millions of displaced persons and refugees around the globe who are spending this sacred holiday separated from their families and unsure of their future , but still hoping for a brighter tomorrow . As a nation we must always keep faith with those seeking a better life , and uphold our commitment to serving as a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world . And , Muslims across the United States celebrate Eid , let us renew our dedication to our foundational commitment to respecting all faiths and beliefs . The Holy Qur’an urges people to stand firmly for justice and reminds us that we were created as nations and tribes so that we may get to know one another . The tradition of religious freedom for all strengthens our country , and we will continue to work with Americans of all beliefs and backgrounds to safeguard and deepen our collective commitment to this fundamental principle . This year , we will resume the tradition of celebrating Eid at the White House , and of honoring the inspiring Muslim Americans who are leading efforts to build greater understanding and unity across our nation . To all those celebrating , Jill and I wish you and your loved ones a Happy Eid . May the spirit of community , compassion , and service we have witnessed over the last month continue throughout the year . Eid Mubarak!###
