"As Muslims throughout United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families," Obama said in statement.

"This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate," he said.

"While Eid marks the completion of Ramazan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease," Obama said.

In US, he said, Eid also reminds them of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of the nation and strengthening the core of democracy.

"That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities," Obama said.

"On behalf of the administration, we wish Muslims in United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak," said US President.
