Shab-e-Qadr observed

10 May 2021


News Desk :
The holy Shab-e-Qadr, also known as Lailatul Qadr, was observed across the country on Sunday night.
On this night, the first verses of the holy Quran were revealed to Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). Muslim devotees will pass the night offering special prayers, reciting the holy Quran, holding zikr and other religious rituals, seeking blessings of almighty Allah for long life, peace and progress for themselves, their families, relatives, friends as well as the nation and the Muslim Ummah.
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 number nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month.
Devotees, on the nights, usually visit graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
For Muslims, the entire month of Ramadan is a period of spiritual training. Besides fasting, they devote themselves to praying, reciting the holy Quran and offering charity.
President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina greeted the countrymen and the Muslim Ummah on the occasion of holy Shab-e-Qadr.
Today is a public holiday.
Newspapers have published special articles while state-run Bangladesh Betar, Bangladesh Television and private television channels are telecasting special programmes highlighting the significance of Lailatul Qadr.
