Muslim worshipers reach to touch and kiss a vessel wrapped in cloth containing hairs believed to belong to Islam's Prophet Mohammed at the Hanbali mosque in the northern Palestinian city of Nablus on August 5, 2013. The mosque was founded by the al-Hanbali family of Nablus in the early 16th-century, and according to local Muslim tradition, a wooden box in the mosque preserves several hairs of the prophet. The flask containing the hairs is brought out annually on the 27th day of the holy fasting month of Ramadan for worshipers to view and seek blessings from.
