US President Joe Biden has congratulated the World Muslims on Ramadan, APA reports.

“My wife Jill and I extend our best wishes to the Muslim communities in the United States and around the world on the occasion of Ramadan,” US President Biden said in a written statement on the occasion of Ramadan.

Stating that Ramadan is a time of contemplation and spiritual healing for all Muslims, Biden said: “This year’s iftar act will be an even stronger reminder of the beauties of health, family and society. Our hearts will beat together with those who have lost loved ones who are faced with empty chairs at their desks.”

He included the verse of the Qur’an in his explanation.

Stating that the USA continues to heal the wounds after the COVID-19 epidemic, Biden included the verse in the Qur’an: “Whoever has done an iota of goodness will be rewarded for it”.

Stating that they see people struggling to survive every day, Biden emphasized that the month of Ramadan is an opportunity for everyone to show compassion, kindness and understanding to each other.

Biden said, “The United States will continue to defend human rights, including the Uighurs in China, the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and Muslims all over the world. Have a blessed Ramadan.”
