Watch Video: President Obama Recognizes Muslim Youth at White House Ramadan Dinner

“….It [Ramadan] is a time of spiritual renewal and a reminder of one’s duty to our fellow man — to serve one another and lift up the less fortunate. The Qur’an teaches that God’s children should tread gently upon the earth and, when confronted by ignorance, reply ‘peace.’ In honoring these familiar values together — of peace and charity and forgiveness — we affirm that, whatever our faith, we’re all one family — President Barack Obama, White House, June 22, 2015.

“…..So, Ziad, Munira, Batoul — they all talk about how much they value the opportunities they’ve had to succeed here in the United States. And they also remind us that our obligations to care for one another extend beyond our immediate communities, beyond our borders.” — President Barack Obama, White House, June 22, 21015.

  1. No doubt Obama is great President, beside Chief Commander, he is a great preacher for all religions. I believe he is a special blessing on the earth. I always love him when he speaks. Great work Malik!,I love your web site, I find it very interesting and very authentic; you are serving all the generations!!

  2. This is the most uplifting post, not just for Muslims but for the world at large who have underestimated President Obama’s core of his heart that is not entirely devoid of faith and awareness of many cultures and communities, particularly of Muslims who under the present climate are looked at with apprehension. My praise goes to the Editor for finding out this event for us to share.
