Chances high of Eid-ul-Fitr moon being sighted on Sunday: Met dept

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the Muslims' holy fasting month of Ramadan.

According to Anny Ting, host of the Eid celebration, the money envelope is called "Amplop putih" in Indonesia, which is available in green, white, and red.

Across the world, Muslims are marking one of the most important holidays on the Islamic calendar to celebrate the breaking of fast. "With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values", Trump said in a statement as quoted by The Hill newspaper.

Trump says he's optimistic about Senate approval of GOP healthcare measure
That's pretty much the options that would be on the table for states, and none of them are very pretty financially. Congressional Republicans have vowed since its introduction in 2010 to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

"May this joyous occasion, bring happiness, peace and prosperity & be opportunity to rededicate ourselves to serve humanity", he said in his message.

The observance made a comeback nearly 200 years later, when then-First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996 threw an Eid al-Fitr reception for about 150 people.

After all, no member of the Trump family bothered attending the official White House Passover seder in April, although at least that one wasn't totally canceled. "The favour of an answer is asked". The Twittersphere was abound with young men and women who posted their selfies coupled with the trending hashtag #EidMubarak.

Local Senators React To Senate GOP Health Care Bill
Trump didn't indicate what types of changes may be in store, but affirmed that he had described a US House-passed bill as "mean". We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare .I don't think they're that far off.

While traditional Ramadan dinners at the White House may seem like a relatively recent addition to the schedule, the first was actually held in 1805 by President Thomas Jefferson.

President George W Bush hosted the dinner every year for his two terms, including just after the 9/11 attacks. Speaking in front of thousands he said, "it's our job to teach people what Islam is all about".

Both Secretary Tillerson and President Trump's decisions come after the president issued a controversial statement at the beginning of the holy month, which drew criticism from many members of the Muslim community.

Daniel Day-Lewis Quits Acting Again

Iftars have become a yearly occurrence at the White House since the Bill Clinton administration.
