President Bush: Please be seated. Thank you. Welcome to the White House. This is the fifth year in a row that it’s been my honor to host an Iftaar in the State Dining Room.

Our distinguished guests represent the millions of Muslims that we’re proud to call Americans, and many Islamic nations are represented here that America is proud to call friend. We welcome the representatives from many countries with large Muslim populations. I want to thank you all for coming to celebrate an honored tradition of the Muslim faith, and wish you a “Ramadan Mubarak.”

I want to thank those in my administration who have joined us. I want to thank the Imam for joining us today, and thank you for leading us in prayer after these short remarks. I want to thank all the ambassadors from the Organization of the Islamic Conference. I welcome other members of the Diplomatic Corps. And I want to thank the Muslim — American Muslim leaders who are with us today. Thanks for taking time out to celebrate this important dinner.

The ominous words of Salah ad-Din about our Ummah

“After I die, you will see these Muslims fall apart in disunity, and you will see the Europeans grow strong. The best thing to do for now is to continue the fight until we drive them from the Coast (of Palestine) or die.”

This is a statement of Salâh ad-Dîn Abul-Afdal Yûsuf ibn al-Ayyûb, popularly known as “Saladin” in the West, as recorded by his personal companion and scribe, Ibn Shaddâd (page 203 of his chronicles). Saladin stated this after King Richard of England proposed that Saladin’s brother, Sayf ad-Dîn (popularly known as “Safadin” in the West), should marry his sister Joanna. So admirable was Saladin’s character that his worst enemy who had traveled over 2000 miles to eliminate him, ended up offering his own sister to his family. This is the result of perfect Islâmic “Ikhlâq” and “’Adab”.

Also, Saladin stated in regards to the troubles he endured uniting the entire Muslim world under one banner:

“I do not know what will happen to me, if Allâh wills that the enemy should grow strong. They have established a base from which they can retrieve other lands. you will see these Muslim leaders sitting at the tops of their grandiose towers saying, ‘I shall not come down,’ until the Muslim world will be destroyed.”

How did Saladin destroy his enemies, drive the Franks from Jerusalem and most of Palestine, and be written of so well by the European historians whose people he defeated? This is how:

“On July 3 Salâh ad-Dîn performed the Friday prayer in the Masjid of al-Aqsa, I saw him prostrating and repeating his prayers over and over again as his tears soaked the prayer mat.”
