A man prepares Sahari (morning meal of Ramadan) during the Lailat al-Qadr (Night of Power) ceremonies which celebrate the night in which the holy Koran was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed through the angel Gabriel in a mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan on September 10, 2009. Observant Muslims pray all night long for mercy and salvation in a ritual known locally as 'Ehyaa' or 'Revival', one of the most important ceremonies of the holy month of Ramadan.
