Yesterday was Eid al-Fitr. On Saturday the White House posted a Presidential Message (full text) sending greetings to Muslims in the United States and around the world as they celebrated the feast. the message reads in part:
Over the past weeks and months, as we have fought the coronavirus, we have relied on our faith, family, and friends to help guide us through these unprecedented times.  As Muslims observe the day of Eid al-Fitr, we hope they find both comfort and strength in the healing powers of prayer and devotion.
