Shab-e-Qadr observed with religious fervor


Muslims across Pakistan and elsewhere in the world observed Shab-e-Qadr or Lailat-ul-Qadr with the religious reverence on night between Sunday and Monday.

The night is considered to be equal to praying for 1000 months. This is one of the holiest and most blessed nights, which is likely to occur on one of the odd nights in the last 10 days of Ramazan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month.

The night has special significance for the Muslims as angels come down on the earth as per order of Allah Almighty and stay there till dawn of the day. Muslims traditionally observe the occasion through nightlong special prayers, Quran Khwani, religious discussions at mosques and in their houses on this holy night.

Due to corona pandemic, most of the faithful, especially elderly and children offered prayers at their homes to seek Allah’s Forgiveness throughout the night till Sehri. People distributed sweats among the neighbours and poor.

The faithful arranged Milad, Zikr, Quran Khwani and religious discussions in mosques and their houses in line with the traditional practices – mostly by following the Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) agreed between Ulema and government last month.

Devotees offered night long prayers and recited holy Quran in mosques and homes across Pakistan. The believers sought forgiveness of Allah and His mercy and offered collective prayers to seek Allah’s Forgiveness throughout the night till ‘Sehri’.
