The holy Shab-e-Qadr, also known as Lailatul Qadr, superior to thousand nights as per the holy Quran, was observed Tuesday night across the country with due religious favour and solemnity.
According to the holy Quran, the night is better than 1,000 nights as the angels and the spirit descend therein, by the permission of Almighty Allah with all decrees.
This is one of the holiest and most blessed nights which is likely to occur on one of the odd numbered nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month.
Muslim devotees passed the night offering special prayers, reciting from the Holy Quran, holding milad mahfils, zikrs, and other religious rituals, seeking blessings of the Almighty Allah for long lives, peace, progress for themselves, their families, relatives, friends as well as the nation and the Muslim Ummah.
Special prayer and sermons were held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque and other mosques across the country on the holy night.
Devotees also visited the graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
To the Muslims, the entire month of Ramadan is a period of spiritual training.
Apart from fasting, they devote themselves to praying, recitation from the holy Quran and engage in greater charity.
