Ramadan Message from President Obama to Muslims in America and The World: Motivational and Inspirational Message about Respecting Other's Belief

Bismillah

As Salaamu 'alaykum and peace to all,

Ramadan Message from President Obama to Muslims in America and The World : Motivational and Inspirational Message about Respecting Other's Beliefs and Values



Today, Saturday 22nd August 2009, marks the 1st Ramadan 1430H for Muslims worldwide, alhamdulillah.

And subhanAllah, when I woke up for sahur, I heard the most beautiful and soothing sound in the world (for me, that is!)- the sound of the rain! :)

Yup, I absolutely and totally love the sound of the rain. Somehow, I feel it speaks to my heart...

John Ruskin once said,

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.

And I totally agree with him.

As I listened to the sound of the rain, suddenly a thought came to me.

Could the rain, that had started on the eve of Ramadan and lasted the whole night till early this morning, symbolically mean that 'it' was sent to do some kind of 'cleaning up' in preparation of the arrival of our special guest- The Holy Month of Ramadan?

Could it?

SubhanAllah, that thought really delighted my heart!

It truly does! What do you think, my friends?

Well, talking about preparing the arrival of Ramadan, as I was searching on YouTube, looking for some video of recitation of Surahs by prominent recitors, I accidentally found this heartwarming video.



It was a Ramadan Address made by President Obama, acknowledging the arrival of Month of Ramadan, the meaning it brings for Muslims and non-Muslims, the benefits of Ramadan and White House's view on Muslims, specifically and humanity, at large. alhamdulillah.

I love it when someone takes the effort to extend their hands to another person.

It simply reminded me of the words of Allah in His Book,

"O humankind We [God] have created you male and female, and made you into communities and tribes, so that you may know one another. Surely the noblest amongst you in the sight of God is the most godfearing of you. God is All-knowing and All-Aware" (Quran 49:13).

So, do you want to know what President Obama said?

Here is the YouTube Video. I hope you enjoy his message, inshaAllah

The floor is yours, Mr. President...



I have to say this: Thank you for reaching out President Obama. Your efforts are highly appreciated and we look forward to more and better understanding between and among the citizens of the world, inshaAllah (God Willing)!

Salaams and Peace to all.
