The holy Shab-E-Qadr, the Night of Decree, was observed in the capital and across the country on Thursday night with due religious fervour and solemnity. The holy Jumatul Wida, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, was also observed yesterday across the country with due religious fervor, reports BSS. Thousands of Muslims thronged different mosques especially Baitul Mokarram National Mosque to offer Jumma prayers as the day was very significant for devotees. Prayers were also offered at different mosques seeking peace and prosperity of the nation as well as the Muslim Ummah. The first verses of the holy Quran were revealed to Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) on the night of Qadr. According to the holy Quran, Lailatul Qadr, the Night of Decree, is superior to thousands 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 nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month. Hundreds of thousands of Muslim devotees offered ‘nafal’ prayers at mosques and homes and recited from the holy Quran in observance of the most meaningful night of forgiveness. Besides, they sought blessings of Almighty Allah for long life, peace, progress, good health and happiness for them, their families, relatives and friends and offered special prayers with hopes of forgiveness from the Almighty Allah. Mosques across the country including Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the capital, and different other religious organizations and institutions arranged milad mahfils, ‘zikr-ajkars’ and distributed tobaraks in the holy night. Special discussions were held at the mosques since Asr prayer, where the Imams delivered speeches narrating spiritual significance one of the most sacred night. Large number of the Muslims stayed for the whole night at the mosques and offered special prayers. Besides, Muslims offered ‘ziarats’ at the graveyards and prayed for the departed soul and sought forgiveness and eternal peace for all. Special prayers were also offered seeking divine blessings for the overall welfare, successes and good luck of the humanity, country and its people and the Muslim Ummah across the world.
