Addressing the guests at the reception, Biden conveyed his greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid across the US and around the world.

He also thanked Muslim frontline works and first responders for contributing to the progress in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that these efforts made it possible to hold the reception this year.

“Muslims make our nation stronger every single day, even as they still face real challenges and threats in our society, including targeted violence and Islamophobia that exists,” Biden said.

He added that during the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims, through fasting, “demonstrate empathy for suffering of others, strengthening and renewing their resolve to give generously and to make the world a better place — better for all who suffer.”
