JAKARTA, INDONESIA: Muslim children in traditional Islamic outfits listen a band singing religious music and chantings from the holy Koran during a ceremony at a mosque in Jakarta, 10 October 2006, as a part to celebrate Muslim holy fasting month of Ramada. Practicing Muslims desist from eating, drinking, smoking and any sexual activities from dawn to dusk during their holy fating month of Ramadan. More than 90 percent of Indonesia's some 220 million people follow Islam, making it the worlds biggest Muslim nation. AFP PHOTO/Jewel SAMAD (Photo credit should read JEWEL SAMAD/AFP/Getty Images)
