US extends warm wishes for Eid Al-Adha to muslims worldwide

Eid al-Adha

WASHINGTON, JUN 16 /DNA/ – On behalf of the United States, I extend warm wishes for a blessed Eid al-Adha to Muslims celebrating here and across the world. For the millions of Muslims who performed the Hajj pilgrimage, we also wish the returning pilgrims a Hajj Mabroor.

We know Eid arrives this year at a time when many Muslims are experiencing deep pain. Our thoughts are with those facing repression or the effects of conflict, as well as those experiencing the global surge in hate-fueled violence and other forms of Islamophobia.

For many who celebrate, Eid al-Adha is a commemoration of faith, sacrifice, and hope restored for a better future. Today, we recognize the leadership of Muslim Americans and the contributions of so many Muslim communities across the globe to building a better world, and we recommit to work for a more peaceful future in which all can enjoy freedom and prosperity.
