“While the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan is not static, each year Muslims in New York’s 13th congressional district and across the world enter into a compact with their communities and recommit themselves to spiritual renewal and introspection,” said Rep. Espaillat.
“The Holy Month of Ramadan brings a familiar tiding to Muslims domestic and abroad, and is a time of joyous celebration, peace, and unity in our efforts to end hate and bigotry. In observance of Ramadan, and every day, we must renew our commitment to understanding and compassion for all brethren within our community – regardless of faith or belief system – and demand decency and humanity in our treatment of everyone.
“May this Holy Month of Ramadan bring peace and wisdom. Ramadan Kareem.”
