WASHINGTON (Pajhwok) Greeting Muslims on the advent of Ramadaninfo-icon, US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the holy month was a time of self-reflection intended to deepen spiritual growth. 

“In this spirit of thanksgiving and reflection, those observing Ramadan can strengthen our communities, help those in need and serve as good examples for how to live a holy life,” Trump said in a message.

“With the rising of tonight’s moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the worldinfo-icon,” Trump said.

Ramadan is a time of self-reflection intended to deepen one’s spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides, Trump said.

Ramadan reminded of the richness Muslims added to the religious tapestry of American life, he said, adding Americans were blessed to live under a Constitution that fostered religious liberty.

“Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government. By doing so, the Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul,” Trump said.
