U.S. President Donald Trump touched upon some of the significant aspects of the Islamic faith in an official White House statement recognizing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, saying that Muslims can show others how to live a “holy life.”
“During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad through fellowship and prayer. Many observe this holy time by fasting, performing acts of charity, reciting prayers, and reading the Quran,” Trump wrote on Tuesday, the start of the monthlong period.
“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,” he added.
“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.”
The president further hailed the U.S. Constitution for fostering religious liberty and respecting religious practice, which he said allows Muslims to observe Ramadan in America.
“The Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul,” he noted.
