Message on the Observance of Ramadan.

October 02, 1975

AS OUR fellow Americans of the Islamic faith look forward to the celebration of the special feast days at the end of Ramadan, Mrs. Ford and I express our greetings and best wishes to each of you.

For you it is a time of renewal and remembrance. It is an opportunity to rededicate yourselves to your religious heritage and to its timeless principles.

For all your fellow Americans it is a chance to reflect with pride and admiration on the way in which the Islamic heritage enriches all of us.

Mrs. Ford and I hope that this year's holidays will be especially satisfying and happy ones for each of you.
