Devoted Muslims are visiting graveyards to seek divine blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones
Holy Shab-e-Qadr, the holiest and most blessed night for Muslims in the month of Ramadan, is being observed across Bangladesh on Saturday night with due solemnity and religious fervour.
Muslim devotees are spending the night seeking divine blessings for peace and prosperity in the country and for the Muslim community, reports UNB.
According to the holy Quran, this night is of great importance as it was when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) to show mankind the path of worldly and eternal emancipation.
Devout Muslims usually pass the night offering special prayers, recitations from the holy Quran, holding milad-mahfil, zikr and other religious rituals at mosques and in their houses.
They are also visiting graveyards to seek divine blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
Bangladesh Television (BTV), Bangladesh Betar, and private TV channels and radio stations are airing special programs, while newspapers published articles highlighting the significance of the night.
