A Senegalese man prays alone during the first day of Ramadan at the Masjid Al-Ikhlas mosque in Newburgh, NY on Friday, July 20, 2012. Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims in the United States. The first verses of the Koran (Qu'ran) were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the last third of Ramadan, making this an especially holy period. CHET GORDON/Times Herald-Record
