Ramadan 2012: A HuffPost Community Observation Of The Islamic Month Of Fasting (LIVEBLOG)

Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims, and is considered to be one of the holiest times of the year. It was established as a Holy Month for Muslims after the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in 610 CE on the occasion known as Laylat al-Qadr, frequently translated as "the Night of Power. The sacred time of year is upon us, and starting today HuffPost Religion will update this page daily with prayers, reflections, verses from the Qur'an, poetry, songs and blogs, to help you growth spiritually during this time, and highlight the diversity of the Muslim community.

HuffPost Religion invites you to share your reflections and experience during Ramadan with us. Did you have a spiritual revelation during Ramadan? Are you a Muslim who is fasting for the first time? Are you a non-Muslim who is fasting Ramadan? Were you tempted to steal a bite or drink some water during your fast? These, and more, we would love to highlight on this blog.

If you are interested in contributing, please send an email to religion@huffingtonpost.com, or tweet us @huffpostrelig. We look forward to hearing from you, and Ramadan Mubarak to all!
