Hundreds of Indonesians wait to receive "zakat," or alms, given to poor people during Ramadan at a Gudang Garam tobacco factory in Kediri, East Java province, Indonesia, on Tuesday. Each person received between 10,000 to 20,000 rupiah ($1-2 U.S. dollars) from Indonesia's biggest clove cigarette manufacturer as part of a tradition of giving during Islam's holy month.
