The holy Shab-e-Barat, known as the night of fortune, has been observed across the country on Sunday (April 21) night with due religious fervor and devotion.

The Muslim devotees have spent the night at mosques and homes offering prayers, reciting from the holy Quran and seeking blessings to Allah for long life, peace, progress and happiness for themselves, their families, relatives, and friends as well as the nation and the Muslim Ummah.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have greeted all Muslims of Bangladesh and elsewhere across the world on the occasion of the holy Shab-e-Barat.

The president wished mercy, progress, and welfare for the whole mankind.

The premier wished that the holy Shab-e-Barat would bring the message of happiness, peace and development for all.

Muslims consider Shab-e-Barat as one of the three most sacred nights and believe that on this night Almighty Allah decides the fate of all human beings fixing their ‘rizq’ (livelihood) for the next year.

On the night, the devotees across the country visited graves and pray for their beloved ones seeking their eternal peace. Many also visited mazars, shrines of saints all over the country.

On the occasion, the Islamic Foundation (IF) has chalked out a nightlong programme at the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque.

The programmes include recitation from the holy Quran, hamd-nath, waz mahfil (religious sermons), milad, qiyam, zikr and special munajat.

The day (Monday) is a public holiday on the occasion of the holy Shab-e-Barat.
