Today President Obama issued Ramadan greetings to Muslim communities around the world. During Ramadan, which begins today, Muslims fast daily from dawn to sunset for 29 or 30 days. It is also a holiday during which Muslims reach out to those less fortunate.
The president’s greetings have been translated into twelve languages and can be read on the White House Web site.
