Lailatul Qadr’ (also known as Shab-e-Qadr), the Night of Destiny, Night of Power, Night of Value, the Night of Decree or Night of Measures, is the anniversary of two very important dates in Islam that occurred in the month of Ramadan. Lailatul Qadr’ is the night that the Qur’an was revealed.
Night-long special prayers, milad mahfils and religious discussions are being held at various mosques and other places in the country, including the capital. A large number of devotees are spends the whole night with prayers at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the city. Devotees have also thronged other mosques in the country to offer prayers and special munajat seeking blessings of Almighty Allah for peace, progress and prosperity of the nation and the Muslum Ummah. They pray for peace of the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
According to the holy Quran, this night is better than a thousand nights. He, who spends the Lailatul Qadr through prayers in full faith, shall have forgiven all his previous sins and faults.
