Waiting For The Light Of Allah


At a mosque in Baku, Shi'ite Muslims -- Azerbaijan's religious majority -- stay awake through the night, praying and reciting the names of Shi'ite imams while standing with the open Koran on their heads. The faithful believe that the light of Allah will come to them through this practice, performed on three nights during Ramadan.
