Trump wishes Muslims 'warm greetings' for Eid holiday

Muslims celebrate Hariraya as Ramadan ends | Bangkok Post: news

Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated on first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, marking the culmination of month-long Ramadan.

"It is also important for us to move closer to Allah, even after the Eid-el-Fitri celebrations and eschew actions and deeds that are against His will and commandment".

Instead, the president issued a statement wishing warm greetings to Muslims.

Eid al-Fitr means the "festival of breaking the fast" and is being celebrated in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran and several other countries today (Monday June 26).

A State Department spokesperson told CBN News, "U.S. ambassadors are encouraged to celebrate Ramadan through a variety of activities, which are held annually at missions around the world".

The reason behind not observing the Ramadan dinner has not been revealed yet. Many members of the Muslim community condemned the message, which largely focused on terrorism.

Iftars have become a yearly occurrence at the White House since the Bill Clinton administration. "Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology".

Ajimobi said, "Since Ramadan fasting symbolizes the period of spiritual rejuvenation, I urge our Muslim brothers and sisters to continue to put into practice the teachings of Prophet Muhammed".

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmri) [India] June 25, (ANI):: Ahead of Eid, markets in Srinagar were crowded with shoppers on Sunday.

A state of emergency has been declared last April, following two separate attacks on churches during Palm Sunday prayers, which killed more than 40 people and injured over 100 others.

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena says the Muslim religious holiday of Eid al-Fitr has such meaningful vision that addresses the common humanity by exceeding the religious limitations.

"To stop it doesn't send a good message", Shareef told Newsweek.

The national flag of the country was hoisted atop government and non-government offices on the Eid day while the main streets in the capital were decorated with flags imprinted with "Eid Mubarak", meaning "blessed festival" or "May you enjoy a blessed festival". "How come you don't have time for a population of your society that needs some assistance?"
