Palestinians dressed as clowns dawn awakener or Al Musaharati in Arabic, beat on their drums to wake Muslims for their overnight 'sahur', last meal, before the day's fast, as they walk through streets, in Dair Al Balah in the center of Gaza Strip on May 23, 2018. Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because it is during that month that tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed. The fast is one of the five main religious obligations under Islam. Muslims around the world will mark the month, during which believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset. Photo by Ashraf Amra
