Ramadan Photos Show Muslims Around The World Celebrating The Holy Month

For many Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a time to look inward, to weigh the heart’s desires and separate out the things that really matter.

Muslims are encouraged to fast from dawn to dusk during this holy month. They joyously break the fast in the evening, snacking on a sweet date before sharing the iftar meal with family and friends.

HuffPost Religion will be updating this photo slideshow throughout the month to showcase how worldwide community of Muslims celebrates the holiday in diverse and beautiful ways.
