PHOTO OF THE DAY
5 AUGUST


Ramadan begins

An Afghan man makes sweets in a shop in Kabul on the eve of the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on July 31. Throughout the month devout Muslims must fast from dawn until sunset when they break for the Iftar meal. The fast is one of the five pillars of Islam, along with the annual pilgrimage to Mecca which able Muslims should do once in a lifetime.
