US President Barack Obama on Wednesday sent holiday wishes to Muslims around the world celebrating Eid al-Adha on Wednesday.

"As more than 2 million Muslims from around the world and across the United States mark the end of their holy pilgrimage of Hajj in Mecca, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to Muslims around the world celebrating Eid al-Adha," Obama stated.

"This pilgrimage and Eid is about sacrifice, almsgiving, and equality," he said, adding that the Hajj is reminiscent  of the principle upon which the United States was founded: e pluribus unum – out of many, one.

Obama also praised the spirit of giving to the needy on Eid al-Adha, stating that "Muslim American organizations are among those at the forefront of attending to victims in this refugee crisis."
