Muslims across the country today (Saturday) will observe the holy Shab-e-Qadr or Lailatul Qadr, the night when the first verses of the holy Quran were revealed to the Greatest Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), reports BSS.
According to the Holy Quran, the night is better than 1,000 months 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 ten days of Ramadan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month.
The devout Muslims traditionally observe the occasion through nightlong special prayers, milad, Quran Khwani, religious discussions at mosques and in their houses on this holy night.
Thousands of Muslim devotees also visit graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
The day is a public holiday.
