Ramadan in America

Ramadan in America (Please click on the above image to view the video)

I wish to send a message of friendship and respect to all our Muslim friends in Malaysia as they begin the sacred month of Ramadan.

As America’s Muslim community grows in numbers and prominence, Americans of every religious tradition are learning more about the origins and meaning of Islam. We wish to partner with people of all faiths to celebrate the rich diversity of our different cultures.

I hope all of you know we welcome Islam in America. Islam’s teachings of self-discipline, compassion and commitment to family enrich our country. America respects Muslims in the U.S. and around the world, from Malaysia and Indonesia to Pakistan, the Middle East and Africa.

I understand that the Holy Koran says God created nations and tribes so we may know one another. As the fasting month of Ramadan begins I wish all Muslims and peoples of other faith traditions in Malaysia a peaceful and blessed Ramadan.

Ramadan Mubarak!
