Holy Shab-e-Qadr observed in Sylhet
The holy Shab-e-Qadr was observed in the city and its adjacent areas last night with due religious fervor and solemnity. The first verses of the holy Quran were revealed to Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) on the night.
According to the holy Quran, Lailatul Qadr, the Night of Decree, is superior to thousands 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 nights in the last 10 days of Ramadan and most likely to be the 27th of the holy month. Thousands of Muslim devotees offered 'nafal' prayers at mosques and homes and recited from the holy Quran in observance of the most meaningful night of forgiveness.
Besides, they sought blessings of Almighty Allah for long life, peace, progress, good health and happiness for them, their families, relatives and friends and offered special prayers with hopes of forgiveness from Almighty Allah.
Many mosques especially Hazrat Shah Jalal Dargah Mosque, Hazrat Shah Poran Dargah Mosque, Bandorbazar Centrel Mosque, Kudrot Ullah Jame Mosque and Abuturab Jame Mosque and different other religious organisations arranged milad mahfils, 'zikr-ajkars' and distributed tobaraks in urban and suburban areas in the city. Special discussions were held at the mosques.
