An Afghan Muslim devotee, who lives and  prays in isolation in a mosque during  Itikaf, the last ten days of the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan, reads from the Quran in the city of Jalalabad east of Kabul, Afghanistan, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012. The last ten days of Ramadan, known as Itikaf, are very important according to many Muslims due to the belief that Prophet Muhammad used to exert himself even more in worship, hoping to draw himself closer to God. Itikaf involves total dedication to worship, reading Quran, and supplication. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul)
