Williams' Statement In Observance Of Eid Al-fitr

May 2nd, 2022

Press Release

“Eid Mubarak to all New Yorkers celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Across our city, members of the Muslim community break the fast this evening. I was honored to be able to share in several observances over the last month, including by hosting our inaugural Iftar as an office, and I have been invigorated by the spirit of compassion and community that I know will extend beyond today’s celebrations.

“As New York’s recovery continues – and as we continue to confront new variants and waves of the virus – Eid al-Fitr is a reminder of our obligation to serve and support one another in this shared struggle, through shared strength. The messages of Ramadan extend beyond the month itself, regardless of personal creed, and the principles of cooperation, charity, self-reformation, and community service guide our lives and our leaders.

"I hope that Ramadan has been a powerful time for all who practice Islam, and I pray that peace, blessings, and light are granted to all on this holy day and beyond."
