USA, OnlyTheBestChoice – President Joe Biden quoted the Quran while delivering Ramadan greetings to United States Muslims.
Biden said, just like last year, Ramadan 2021 is still celebrated with limited conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, Biden requested that Ramadan this time be used to commemorate the citizens who died from coronavirus.
“As we remember those who have left since Ramadan, we expect a brighter tomorrow,” Biden said as quoted from the press statement of the United States Embassy in Jakarta.
“The Holy Quran reminds us that ‘God is the light of heaven and earth, which leads us out of darkness into light’,” he continued.
Biden added that although Ramadan activities are held online, Eid al-Fitr celebrations at the White House are still held in person. In fact, Biden admitted he couldn’t wait for the moment.
“Although Ramadan activities in the White House will be held virtually, jill and I are excited to again hold Eid celebrations at the White House directly, god willing,” Biden said.
“Hopefully you and your family can live a month full of inspiration and kindness,” Biden said. [*]
