When someone commits a violent crime like we saw the heinous crime here in northern Virginia over Ramadan with a young 17-year-old woman beaten to death by a baseball bat, by an – someone who was here illegally, we need to cooperate with authorities. And that person needs to be deported.feedback

David Lammy

In one flat alone, people say there were up to 40 people gathering, because they gathered in the flat, it was Ramadan. When you have tragedies of this kind that could have been prevented, we know from Hillsborough and other affairs in our national life that governments, local authorities, big corporations, companies, the contractors - they cover their backs. That's why I raised issues around the documentation.feedback

Othman Moqbel

It is a great honour once again for Human Appeal to be part of Celebrate Eid; the biggest gathering of Muslims in Europe. As well as tragedy throughout the holy month of Ramadan, there has been unrivalled generosity.feedback

Ansari Abdul Malik

My message was for everyone to persevere, adapt to their situation and think positive. It's not the end of the world.feedback

Ian Jack

The white van that collided with worshippers this week crashed in a road once known as the ‘worst’ in north London. Whadcoat Street, which hardly merits the latter word, is a strange little appendage to one of the busiest highways in north London. A cul-de-sac that strikes north from Seven Sisters Road roughly opposite the old Astoria cinema, later the Rainbow, where Jimi Hendrix burned his first guitar, it can’t be more than 50 metres long. All this week, flowers and messages of love and solidarity have decorated one short side of it, because it was here that Makram Ali died and 11 other people were injured, two seriously, after a white van mounted the Seven Sisters Road pavement soon after midnight on Monday, ploughing into a group of worshippers who were returning from Ramadan prayers before it made a sharp left turn into the side street.feedback

Ahmed Zulkamal

The market keeps getting more diverse, the offerings are more varied every year. People always want to try the 'in' thing.feedback

Huda Quhshi

The beginning of Ramadan was really quiet. It was so slow. It was to the point that I thought of closing for Ramadan. Then, all of a sudden, we got so many bookings that we have had to turn people away.feedback

Omid Safi

This isn't about finding the right verse in the Koran. If our religion is to have meaning and rigor and beauty and depth and relevance, it's got to have something to say to the suffering of these different communities, including their own.feedback

Azam Akram

Gone are the days when things were civil, due to ignorance, because people don't know what we believe.feedback

Akbar Ahmed

It reminds us of the inevitability of our own mortality, to see that we're here not permanently but here for a short while.feedback

Qasim Rashid

Ramadan is supposed to be a month of peace in every conceivable way.feedback

Omid Safi

There was a cry of heartbreak and of agony. The response was, this could be any of our daughters. It transcends the divisions in the Muslim community around ethnicity and political persuasions.feedback

Faisal Amir

As devout Muslims, we are forbidden to fight during Ramadan so afterwards, there may be new groups coming in.feedback

Harun Khan

Over the past weeks and months, Muslims have endured many incidents of Islamophobia, and this is the most violent manifestation to date. During the night, ordinary British citizens were set upon while they were going about their lives, completing their night worship. My prayers are with the victims and their families. It appears from eyewitness accounts that the perpetrator was motivated by Islamophobia. We urge calm as the investigation establishes the full facts, and in these last days of Ramadan, pray for those affected and for justice.feedback

Sadiq Khan

We don't yet know the full details, but this was clearly a deliberate attack on innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan. While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect. The situation is still unfolding and I urge all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant. Please report anything suspicious to the police, but only call 999 in an emergency.feedback

Amber Rudd

The Finsbury Park attack was terrorism. We all have a part to play in standing in solidarity with the Muslim community. Every community in the UK has been stunned and saddened by the unimaginable horrors we have faced in recent weeks. Tragically, the holiest month in the Muslim calendar has this year been shattered by a series of devastating incidents. British Muslims universally condemned the London Bridge attackers for their cowardly actions during Ramadan.feedback

Nesrine Malik

Sunday night’s attack wasn’t a surprise to those of us who recognise that Islamophobia, in print or over the airwaves, can have real-world consequences. We now live in a world where prejudice and violence against Muslims is firmly established. In a relatively short space of time, we have gone from deliberating whether Islamophobia actually exists to scrambling to deal with its rapidly unfolding consequences. On Sunday night, on the 24th day of Ramadan, an Islamic centre in Finsbury Park was deliberately attacked as worshippers left a nearby mosque.feedback

Neil Basu

Extra policing resources have been deployed across London in order to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan. I would urge everyone to remain calm and vigilant.feedback

Restituto Padilla

We are aiming to clear Marawi by the end of Ramadan. We cannot definitely say when we could end this because we are fighting door to door and there are booby traps which pose danger to our troops.feedback

George W. Bush

All the world continues to benefit from this faith and its achievements. Ramadan and the upcoming holiday season are a good time for people of different faiths to learn more about each other. And the more we learn, the more we find that many commitments are broadly shared.feedback

Rumana Ahmed

If you look at when it started and how it's evolved, in a way it's kind of been in response to conversations happening on a national level and in our society.feedback

John Ragosta

Here is an ambassador, an honored guest. The dinner is specifically scheduled after sundown to accommodate him. Yeah, it sounds to me like an iftar dinner. You're breaking the fast during Ramadan with someone who is a Muslim.feedback

Charlotte Beers

We all agreed that we had to reach out to moderate Muslims and acknowledge that they had as much concern as we did about the circumstances. That dinner was extremely important and heard around the world. … My personal opinion was, this speaks to that whole underpinning of what makes the United States tick – freedom of religion. It was extremely timely, we felt.feedback

Hillary Clinton

A greater understanding of the tenets of Islam in our national consciousness will help us build strength and resilience as a nation. The values that lie at the heart of Ramadan – faith, family, community and responsibility to the less fortunate – resonate with all the peoples of this earth.feedback

Barack Obama

And that's a reminder, along with the generations of patriotic Muslims in America, that Islam – like so many faiths – is part of our national story.feedback

Barack Obama

Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan – making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.feedback

Zaki Barzinji

All iftar is is people breaking their fast. If they broke their fast in the White House, then that was iftar. If I'm with a group of friends who are not Muslim, and we go and eat super late, and I break my fast while I'm with them, technically there was an iftar at that dinner.feedback

Jonathan Chadwick

At 10.31pm on May 22 2017 a man subsequently identified as Salman Ramadan Abedi detonated an improvised explosive device in the Manchester Arena complex in Manchester city centre. The device had been contained in a rucksack he was carrying on his back.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We call on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt to ease the blockade on Qatar. We're seeing shortages of food [in Qatar], families are being forcibly separated, and children pulled out of school - we believe these are unintended consequences, especially during this holy month of Ramadan, but they can be addressed immediately.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We believe these are unintended consequences, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, . Our expectation is that these countries will immediately take steps to de-escalate the situation and put forth a good faith effort to resolve their grievances they have with each other.feedback

Philip D. Murphy

I want to say something about Ramadan. I want to say salaam aleikum.feedback

Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed

They fought hard and bravely for their country, to keep their people safe during this holy month of Ramadan.feedback

Akbar Ahmed

People in the Muslim world have reached a point where they are absolutely fed up with the violence committed by Muslims, and they want peace. Because it is Ramadan, it touches a nerve. If nothing else, they are reminding us of our humanity, and that is something we must never forget.feedback

Erica Gasparri

Mummy I want to become a Muslim. He was trying to radicalise the children, he would go down to the park and talk to them about Islam. He also came to the houses and gave the kids money and sweets during Ramadan.feedback

Kyle Orton

For Islamic State, Ramadan is a particularly holy month and jihad is their holiest occupation, so for them they see it as additional credit if you kill unbelievers in this month. They have been quite expressive about that. In Britain in particular there's been among Isil and their fans and supporters a significant mention of Britain as a target in these recent weeks. I don't know if that has led or followed the attacks here. Because the flow of fighters to the caliphate has actually dropped off, they started re-directing these people backwards and they started this about a year ago.feedback

Ashraf Ghani

Even in this holy month of Ramadan which is a month of worship, virtue and blessings, terrorists have no intention to stop killing the innocent people. We've eliminated a number of key places and we've captured a lot of information. [But] it's not finished by any means.feedback

Sameen Mohsin

Beautiful antiterrorism Ramadan ad by @Zain. A poignant and important message!feedback

Ibrahim Hooper

Given all the Islamophobic rhetoric, appointments and anti-Muslim policy proposals, it sends the message American Muslims are not worthy to engage. In Saudi Arabia, President Trump never mentioned the millions of Muslim Americans and their contributions to society. He and his policy people view Islam and Muslims as a foreign issue, or a security issue.feedback

Imtiaz Khan

We are very sad. Ramadan started just a couple hours ago. We are very sorry for the two men who tried to do the right thing. . . . Of course people from the Muslim community are concerned. And, unfortunately, the easy targets are women because of the headscarf.feedback

Majed Moughni

It's really upsetting. My clients want the public to know. Especially during Ramadan, it would be a travesty if Muslims ... in Dearborn bought pizza from Little Caesars and discovered they were eating pork. There's different schools of Islamic law that allows for the eating of chicken and beef, but there is no such thing as halal pork. The pork itself is forbidden.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

On behalf of the United States Department of State, Renda and I sincerely wish Muslims around the world a peaceful and blessed Ramadan. Ramadan is a month of reverence, generosity, and self-reflection. Most importantly, it is a cherished time for family and friends to gather and give charity to those who are less fortunate. This time reminds us all of the common values of harmony and empathy we hold dear. I wish all those celebrating a very happy Ramadan Kareem.feedback

Abu Ali

What they are doing is not jihad in any sense according to Islamic tradition. I would counter by saying that just as one receives multiplied rewards for good deeds in Ramadan, they receive multiplied bad deeds for sins. So what of the person who spends the sacred month of Ramadan oppressing people and killing innocents?feedback

Abu Muhammad al-Adnani

Get prepared, be ready, to make it a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers.feedback

Carlito Galvez

We are trying to use our maximum force. The main purpose of the offensive is to suppress the lawlessness and to maintain normalcy in Marawi so that our people here, our countrymen, can return, especially by Ramadan.feedback

Bim Adewunmi - BuzzFeed

Straight away, a big tray of dates came out. He didn't ask me about my Muslim-ness; he didn't ask for my credentials. During Ramadan, everyone becomes everyone's sister, everyone's brother.feedback

Amanda Saab

I think it's so generous that they want to fully embrace and engage.feedback

Malika Ameen

By about 3, you start to hit a wall and you wish you didn't have to be around food all day. Everything starts to smell so strong.feedback

Faiyaz Jaffer

It's hard to put into practice, of course. We save up to eat at expensive restaurants, we think about food and what meal is next, but the idea is that there's a time for that, but it's not the end goal of life.feedback

Bim Adewunmi - BuzzFeed

One year, I was obsessed with courgette fritters. Another crazy Ramadan, it was spinach balls.feedback

Faiyaz Jaffer

But the fast is a reminder that food is a means, not an end goal.feedback

Bim Adewunmi - BuzzFeed

The first week is always rough. But it's very rewarding, and I always feel like a champ when I'm done.feedback

Faiyaz Jaffer

It's a test of our willpower, a way to emphasize our spiritual dimension.feedback

Mark Mattson

It's a big change to go from three meals a day and snacks to fasting, and all of a sudden that energy isn't coming in. Just like it takes a while for your cardiovascular and muscular systems to adjust to the stress of exercise, the bioenergetic challenge of intermittent fasting is the same.feedback

Malika Ameen

When everyone's standing around, picking from the same platter, suddenly you get a surge of energy. Everyone is chatty and smiling with the anticipation of dinner.feedback

Amanda Saab

While my tummy is rumbling, it's drawing me closer to my faith.feedback

Malika Ameen

We eat a lot of watermelon. You're so dehydrated, it's a quick way to get liquid into your body.feedback

Amanda Saab

While I'm not consuming food all day, I'm thinking about food. Not about how I'm missing out, but about how to make the best thing to fulfill everyone's cravings after a long day of fasting. I will make a big salad every day, and that is not negotiable.feedback

Bim Adewunmi - BuzzFeed

You're so worried about how hungry you're going to get, you end up eating way too much and it's uncomfortable. You learn it every Ramadan.feedback

Malika Ameen

That smell, to me, is the smell of Ramadan.feedback

Salman Abedi

My son was as religious as any child who opens his eyes in a religious family. As we were discussing news of similar attacks earlier, he was always against those attacks, saying there's no religious justification for them. I don't understand how he'd have become involved in an attack that led to the killing of children. Until now my son is a suspect, and the authorities haven't come up with a final conclusion. Every father knows his son and his thoughts, my son does not have extremist thoughts.feedback

Ian Fenn

We are a Manchester school. We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all its forms. Our deepest condolences go to all who have been affected by this outrage.feedback

Sam Grogan

All at the University of Salford are shocked and saddened by the events of last night. Our thoughts are with all those involved, their families and their friends.feedback

Neville Edwards

There was a lot of police activity and the avenue was cordoned off. There was a controlled hard entry by the police who blew the front door off using controlled explosives.feedback

Tina Ward

They seem to be quiet. I've been in my house 10 years and they've been there longer than me.feedback

Neville Edwards

She felt the ground beneath her shake. She was absolutely terrified.feedback

Othman al-Ghanmi

Our advance on a vast front has stunned the enemy and, God willing, we will achieve victory before Ramadan and announce the liberation of Mosul and people of Mosul from dirtiness of Daesh (Islamic State).feedback

Michael Koncz

We're not able to fight Amir Khan because of Ramadan, so we decided to take this fight in the interim. We signed it [for Horn], so yeah, we're excited about it. But again, my preference was to fight Khan. That didn't work out. We had this on the table so we decided to take it. Manny will train and do the best he can and, hopefully, we get the fight over with very quickly, we get out of there, we say hi to the Australian fans and media and come home.feedback

Michael Koncz

We're not able to fight Amir Khan because of Ramadan, so we decided to take this fight in the interim. We signed it, so yeah, we're excited about it. But again, my preference was to fight Amir Khan. That didn't work out. We had this on the table so we decided to take it. Frankly and honestly, and nothing against Jeff Horn -- I've never met the kid, I don't know him personally -- but the name recognition is I guess why the fans picked Amir Khan.feedback

Paul Dodgson

I only have to think about myself not eating or drinking for 19 hours. This is not to be taken as a precedent for all trials involving devout Muslims. The date was fixed administratively but no consideration had been made for Ramadan. I would not be confident for someone to stand trial if I looked up I thought he's not fit to be here. Your trial is going to take place at the Old Bailey either on June 26 or perhaps July 10.feedback

Adnan Durrani

I went on CNN during Ramadan, the holy month for us, and let everyone know that the Ramadan promotions at Whole Foods were still intact and that mobilized a lot of consumers who were excited about the diversity at Whole Foods.feedback

Fawaz Gerges

In Islamic history, Ramadan is a reminder to Muslims of who they are, separating the faithful from the non-faithful. But what ISIS and Al Qaeda have done to great effect is to focus on the war spirit and offensive spirit rather than on the moral spirit.feedback

Jonathan A. C. Brown

This is a time to improve yourself and not to swear, not to have arguments – and you have a leg up now. That means that people who do these attacks only have themselves to blame. They can't blame the devil.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The attack, which took place during the holy month of Ramadan, shows that terrorism strikes with no regard for faith and values. Nor do terrorists distinguish between their victims? We urge governments, parliaments, media and civil society organizations around the world, especially in Western countries, to take a firm stand against terrorism.feedback

Ibrahim Hooper

We have called for stepped-up police presence not only for that mosque but others in that state. Every mosque all over the country has nightly Ramadan activities, so they're vulnerable.feedback

Abu Muhammad al-Adnani

The smallest action you do in their heartland is better and more enduring to us than what you would if you were with us. If one of you hoped to reach the Islamic State, we wish we were in your place to punish the Crusaders day and night.feedback

David Cameron

Someone can move to here with very basic English and there's no requirement to improve it over time. We will change that. We will now say: if you don't improve your fluency, that could affect your ability to stay in the UK.feedback

Taha Mendu

Some of my friends left just after Ramadan. There were also some young people who wanted to follow them, but then they realised that there was a conspiracy to empty Syria of its population.feedback

Charlie Winter

We're in the run up to Ramadan and I expect it's a bit of a propaganda surge for them, to cause a peak of interest. We cannot know for sure, but it's important to know that it's not a foregone conclusion that ISIL will destroy Palmyra.feedback

Fatima Bai

The month of Ramadan in here, and of course we have to fast, but what are we to eat? Perhaps we should be content if we can afford to buy anything to eat, but so far I have bought nothing. Everything seems to be too expensive.feedback

Agostino Miozzo

They all expressed a desire for 'business continuity'. That means the previous government international obligations will be respected and domestically all civil servants and workers will return to work. When I was in Tripoli I saw a text message that had been sent to all mobile phones in the country. It urged everyone to go back to work at the end of Ramadan.feedback

Valérie Gauriat - Euronews

The bombing is dictating how Ramadan will be marked this year in Gaza. Despite speculation, few doubt their prayers will be enough to silence the shelling for good. Whatever happens, the festival of Eid will be one of bitterness.feedback

Hamid Karzai

Today we, the Muslim world, especially the people of Afghanistan, remember the people of Palestine, in Gaza, who are suffering such brutality. They are being killed night and day.feedback

Yaser Javed

The longer hours of fasting is a challenge for me in many ways. As I am a student and a part-time worker, it gets hard for me to cook for myself, to study and to get my work done while I'm fasting till 9pm.feedback

Abdel Hamid Ramadan

Unemployment is increasing and people are tired; the people who they're calling 'old regime remnants' in the square, all these people are civilised, university students, doctors, and they're all exceptional people. What the government is doing is unacceptable. The police are firing at us without any of us throwing a single stone; I am a witness. I swear to God, right now they fired without any of us throwing a stone.feedback

Ralph Lee

Our hope for the whole thing really is to draw attention to a significant minority in Britain. There are nearly three million Muslims in Britain. This will bring a bit of attention to the experience of Ramadan and what they are going through in this period.feedback

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Egyptians are considering Ramadan as the beginning of a new phase, to put aside their differences and promote the values of tolerance and love on a social level, hoping that a better tomorrow takes them out of the economic and political crises.feedback

Ibrahim Afridi

I feel happy and good to see that I am really achieving the goal of self-restraint. What motivates me is that fasting is the only worship which is for Allah alone.feedback

Imam Zaid Shakir

Who do you wish to please? Your Nafs (desires), your country or Allah?feedback

Imam Zaid Shakir

It is not permissable for a Muslim athlete to break his or her fast for reasons of athletic competition.feedback

Mohamed Elhamy

The Eid festival is not just about prayers and coming together it's also about food. Egyptians share a special sweet kA'AEK with friends and relatives.feedback

Mansour Mansour

Most shops, especially the bigger supermarkets know that the business stakes are high and they play the game too; all month these books are put at the front of the shelves.feedback

Mathias Michenaud

We've gone from a general market of fairly large families who cook at home and look for raw materials to cook with, to a clientele of smaller families, people who work and who share with non-Muslim consumers the need for easy-to-prepare, microwavable goods.feedback
