Sayeed Muhammad: Muslims across the country will be offering their Shab-e-Qadr or Lailatul Qadr prayers tonight, marking the bestowment of the first verses of Holy Quran on Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), reports BSS.
According to the holy book, the Night of Decree, is better than 1,000 nights as the angels and the spirit descend therein, by the permission of Almighty Allah with all decrees, and it is likely to occur on one of the odd nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan, most likely on its 27th night.
On the occasion, President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday greeted the people and Muslims across the world, issuing messages to wish continued peace, progress and prosperity of them.
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, with many thronging graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones.
Newspapers publish special issues while state-run Bangladesh Betar, Bangladesh Television and private television channels telecast special programmes will highlight the significance of the night.
