Muslims in the US will celebrate Eid Al Fitr on Tuesday.
“At the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate the day of Eid through prayer and reflection,” he said in the statement.
He said that Eid Al Fitr is a “sacred day”, which provides Muslims with the opportunity to “renew their commitment to help those less fortunate, to reinforce their faith in God, and to engage in worship and fellowship with others.”
Sharing greetings from his wife, Melania Trump, the US President also said: “We hope that this holiday brings joy and peace to all those celebrating, and we pray that communities worldwide feel God’s abundant blessings of love, forgiveness, and goodwill.”
The day of Eid Al Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the holy month when Muslims fast from dawn to sunset for 29 or 30 days.
Like Saudi Arabia, the US also started Ramadan on May 6.
