Ramadan Begins In Kashmir

SRINAGAR, KASHMIR, INDIA - JULY 11: A Kashmiri Muslim woman chooses an abaya, a long tunic and veil, the standard ladies' fashion to wear, even in the presence of close male family members, in a store on the first day of Ramadan on July 11, 2013 in Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian administered Kashmir, India. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, during which Muslims believe the Quran was given to Prophet Muhammad. Muslims across the globe abstain from eating, smoking, and sex from dawn to dusk during the month. Besides spending more time praying, donating alms is mandatory. Every Muslim has to give 2.5 percent of their wealth and assets to the poor, and often give more. (Photo by Yawar Nazir/Getty Images)
