Filipino Muslim girls pose with their new dresses for worship, locally known as 'abaya' after their mother bought them at a market in Cotabato City, Maguindanao province on Mindanao island on September 18, 2009 days ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday. About five percent of Filipinos are Muslim, making them the largest minority in the mainly Roman Catholic nation. Muslims, during the holy of Ramadan, are required to abstain from food, drink and sex from dawn to dusk. AFP PHOTO/TED ALJIBE (Photo credit should read TED ALJIBE/AFP/Getty Images)
