Iranian Muslims pilgrims hold copies of the Koran on their heads as they mourn and pray for the martyrdom of the Shiites' first Imam (Imam Ali), cousin of the Prophet Mohammed, at Shiites' 8th Imam (Imam Reza's) holy shrine in Mashad, 574 miles northeast of Tehran, on October 2, 2007. Imam Ali was killed by Ebne Moljam Moradi 1386 years ago in present day Iraq during 20st day of Ramadan. During the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking and smoking from sunrise to sunset. (UPI Photo/Mohammad Kheirkhah)
