On behalf of the people of the United States, I wish all Muslims around the world a happy and blessed Ramadan.

Ramadan is a time for self-reflection, sharing and renewal. American Muslims make valuable contributions to our country every day and millions around the world will commemorate this month with acts of service and volunteerism to their communities.

Along with dozens of our Embassies, I will host an Eid Celebration in Washington for Muslims and non-Muslims to join together and reflect on our common values, faith and the gifts of the past year.

During this month of peace and humility, I wish the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world Ramadan Kareem.

Hillary Rodham Clinton
