President George W. Bush of the United States of America has sent greetings to Muslims observing Ramadan in America and around the globe.

According to a news release from the U.S. Embassy in Banjul, President Bush thanked men and women of the Muslim community for their contribution to America.

He said the holy month of Ramadan is a special time of prayer, fasting, and service. President Bush asserted that for Muslims, these days commemorate the revelation of God's word to the prophet Muhammad in the form of the holy Qu'ran.

"Your love of family and gratitude to God have strengthened the moral fabric of our country. Our nation is stronger and more hopeful because of the generosity, talents, and compassion of our Muslim citizens. Laura and I send our best wishes. Ramadan Mubarak," President Bush said.
