Fethullah Gulen’s Thanksgiving Message


Date posted: November 22, 2018

As Americans gather around Thanksgiving tables today, it is a moment to celebrate and reflect on the bounties of God, express our gratitude to Him and to celebrate our common humanity. People from all faiths and political persuasions are able to put aside their differences and engage in dialogue, reminding them that the world is large, humanity is diverse and that every human being has inherent value and something special to offer.

I pray that God, the Most Merciful provide food, shelter, and clothing to those who are hungry, homeless or otherwise in poverty, through the generosity in the hearts of their neighbors and fellow citizens. For those who are suffering from disease or strife, May God end their suffering and provide them comfort.

– Fethullah Gülen
