WASHINGTON - US President George W. Bush on Friday offered his greetings to Muslims around the world as they observe the holy month of Ramadan. "I send greetings to Muslims observing Ramadan in America and around the globe," he said in a statement released by the White House. "Laura and I send our best wishes. Ramadan Mubarak." "I thank the men and women of the Muslim community for their contributions to America. Your love of family, and gratitude to God have strengthened the moral fabric of our country. Our nation is stronger and more hopeful because of the generosity, talents, and compassion of our Muslim citizens," he said. Bush said the holy month of Ramadan is a special time of prayer, fasting, and service. For Muslims, these days commemorate the revelation of God's word to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the form of the (Holy) Qur'an, he added.
