Biden wrote, “As the crescent moon ushers in the month, Jill and I send our warmest greetings and best wishes to Muslim communities in the United States and around the world. Ramadan Kareem.”
Biden’s message came on the night of the first of Ramadan when Muslims in the country performed their first Taraweeh prayers.
Biden highlighted the achievements made by the American Muslims in the battle against the pandemic, their role in vaccine development and Muslims serving diligently as healthcare workers.
He started by recalling the difficult year America and other parts of the world experienced due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“In this pandemic, friends and loved ones cannot yet gather together in celebration and congregation, and far too many families will sit down for iftar with loved ones missing,” he wrote.
He added that American Muslims are targeted by hate crimes and bullying, these acts are wrong and must be put to an end.
Biden stated that this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Muslims can not celebrate Ramadan and Eid with their loved ones. He expressed that he and his wife Jill look forward to resuming the traditional Eid celebrations at the White House soon.
