London (IINA) � British Prime Minister Theresa May, in a statement, sends her best wishes to everyone in Britain and around the world celebrating Ramadan.

This Ramadan, let us celebrate the way in which this festival of peace, reflection, and religious devotion brings people closer together.

Ramadan is a unique and special time for Muslims in Britain and around the world, she said according to the Prime Minister’s Office, 10 Downing Street.

It is a time for them to renew their faith in God and increase their devotion and spirituality. A time when, despite the long summer days, Muslims across Britain will find strength through devotion to fulfill one of the five pillars of their religion.

Ramadan fosters a strong sense of community spirit, reflected in the way mosques open their doors and welcome people of all faiths and none to share in the Iftar meal something I have experienced in my own constituency of Maidenhead. It is an important chance for people from all walks of life to meet together, discuss and share experiences with their neighbors, and to increase familiarity and foster friendships.

And let us say to Muslims here in Britain and across the world, Ramadan Kareem.
