On behalf of the United States Department of State, I would like to wish all Muslims a blessed Eid al-Fitr.

This holiday marks the end of Ramadan and is a time for celebration across Muslim communities worldwide. It is a culmination of a month of fasting, sharing meals with family and friends, donating to charitable causes, and focusing on self-improvement.

As you attend Eid prayers, share gifts, and visit each other’s homes on this joyous occasion, we extend our best wishes to you. Eid Mubarak.
