A resolution to extend best wishes to Muslims in Michigan, the United States, and worldwide, for a joyous and meaningful observance of Ramadan, a holy month of prayer, fasting, charity, and reflection.
Whereas, This occasion is observed in commitment to the Islamic principles and in remembrance of the month in which the holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh); and
Whereas, This month of sacrifice and contemplation begins on or about the evening of Friday, May 26, 2017, based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon. Ramadan continues until on or about the evening of Sunday, June 25, 2017, with Eid al-Fitr, the celebration of the completion of the month; and
Whereas, Muslims in Michigan, our nation, and around the world will observe Ramadan by fasting, emphasizing self-discipline, worship, charity, and reading the Holy Quran to improve patience, humility, and spirituality; and
