The holy Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, will be observed across Bangladesh on May 1 as the Shaban moon was sighted in the country’s sky on Thursday (April 17).

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at the Islamic Foundation’s Baitul Mukarram office, in the evening.

According to Muslim belief, Shab-e-Barat is the night when Allah writes the destinies of all the creations for the coming year by considering their preceding deeds.

Muslim devotees will offer special prayers, recite from the holy Quran, hold religious rituals including milad seeking divine blessings for welfare of the mankind.
