Ramadan in the Heat of Dubai, UAE

A Muslim man reads the Koran, Islam's holy book, as he sits inside a mosque in Dubai on the third day of the fasting month of Ramadan on August 24, 2009.

During the month of Ramadan Muslims abstain from eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset.

The soaring summer temperature force many Muslims to spend long hours in air conditioned mosques.
