National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations

National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations is an American non-profit, non-governmental, educational organization dedicated to improving American knowledge and understanding of the Arab region.

Founded in 1983, the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations is an American non-profit, non-governmental, educational organization dedicated to improving American knowledge and understanding of the Arab world. The Council has been granted public charity status in accordance with Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. From its offices in Washington, D.C., and through the alumni of its educational programs spread all across the United States, the National Council works with sister organizations to share resources and maximize effectiveness. To this end, the Council has played a leading role in convening regular meetings of the heads of a dozen Arab-U.S. relations organizations devoted to sharing information, discussing strategies, avoiding duplication of effort, and identifying and pursuing opportunities for greater inter-organizational cooperation. The National Council is not a membership organization. Its supporters are primarily philanthropists, individuals, and institutions in the United States and the Arab world that have hosted or participated in one or more of the Council's programs. Their involvement with the National Council often begins with a single event or activity and then, based on that experience, grows into a broader and lasting relationship based on a shared commitment to the Council's vision and mission. By following up with programmatic alumni, facilitators, hosts, sponsors, friends, and supporters, and continuously reaching out to others, the Council has steadily increased the number of people who are better informed and more actively involved in and supportive of the national dialogue on U.S.-Arab relations.

Please accept the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations best wishes on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.

The National Council recognizes Ramadan as being an extraordinary opportunity for self-sacrifice and fasting. It provides a fertile period for extended inward reflection and growth.

Ramadan is renowned for being a time for piety and for the abhorrence of the ills that afflict those who have been wronged. It is an opportunity to revive and concentrate on the elemental ideals of justice, peace, family, and equity – all for the betterment of humanity.

This year, as ever before, Ramadan is honored for being a time of restoration. It promotes the faithful's renewed commitment to deeply-rooted Islamic and universalistic values that stir and strengthen souls everywhere.

Ramadan brings a time for deepened compassion and understanding. It is an opportunity to lessen the suffering of humankind's less fortunate.

With renewed warm wishes that the holy month of Ramadan will be one of blessings for you and your family,

Ramadan Mubarak.
