Dear Mr. President Joe Biden, 

Hope you are doing well.

Eid is a term denoting Holiday or Festival, and Muslims worldwide celebrate two major Holidays, Eid-Al-Fitr and Eid-Al-Adha.

Eid-Al-Fitr it marks the end of the month-long (dawn-to-sunset) fasting of Ramadan. And Eid-Al-Adha it honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ismail (Ishmael) as an act of obedience to Allah's command. Before Ibrahim could sacrifice his son, however, God provided him with a lamb which he was supposed to kill in his son's place.

The Muslim population here in America is about 3.4 million. It's really important for all Muslims to celebrate those Two days with their families and friends, without missing on school/work day because there is so much work to make up.

We kindly request you to take the necessary steps to Declare these two Festivals as a  Federal Statutory Holidays.

 

Sincerely,

Muslims in America.
