United States president wishes Muslims 'warm greetings' for Eid

United States president wishes Muslims 'warm greetings' for Eid”

The White House tradition started with earnest in 1996, when First Lady Hillary Clinton hosted 150 people after learning more about the ritual from her daughter Chelsea, who had reportedly studied Islamic history in school, as reported by Muslim Voices.

This year, Meethi Eid or Eid Ul Fitr is expected to be celebrated on Monday, 26th June.

Israeli forces detained at least six Palestinians in predawn raids across the occupied West Bank before dawn on Sunday, which coincided with the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, Ma'an News reports.

"On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr", Trump said in a statement.

In the Philippines, fighting between government forces and Islamist rebels in the southern town of Marawi eased on Sunday as the military sought to enforce a temporary truce to mark the Eid holiday.

Food is an important part of Eid al-Fitr, as feasting takes the place of fasting.

The fighting has displaced some 246,000 people, and killed more than 350 people, majority rebels, and about 69 members of the security forces. Eid implies breaking of the fast that Muslims observe during Ramadan as they wish each other happiness and good health, indulging in merriment and celebrations.

"For the first time in almost two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations", the report said.

In his message, the Chief Minister said the festival, which marks the culmination of the holy month of Ramzan, underlines the plurality of the Indian cultural ethos.

Meanwhile, a day before Eid-ul-Fitr, markets in the summer capital and elsewhere were abuzz with shoppers. The crowd size was about the same as in previous years, Islamic Center of Charlotte spokesman Jibril Hough said.
