This time, Muslim devotees are seeking blessings of the Almighty Allah, staying at home

Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, is being observed across the country on Thursday with religious fervor and solemnity.

The night falls on fifteenth day of Sha’ban and around two weeks before the beginning of the holy month of Ramazan. 

This time, Muslim devotees are observing the night with religious fervour throughout the night to seek blessings of the Almighty Allah, staying at home amid coronavirus restrictions.

Shab-e-Barat gives a chance to the people to seek forgiveness from the Almighty. 

Devotees are offering special prayers, reciting from the Holy Quran, holding milad, zikr and other religious rituals seeking divine blessings for the wellbeing of mankind.

Amid coronavirus outbreak, the Islamic Foundation has urged the people to offer prayers from home during Shab-e-Barat.

“Pray at home on Shab-e-Barat night for the people’s safety during the crisis time of pandemic,” said a press release from Islamic Foundation on Wednesday.

“We are humbly requesting the countrymen, including ulema, peer-mashayekhs, and imams, muajjins of the mosques across the country, to offer special prayers to the Almighty Allah to keep our motherland, the Muslim ummah, as well as the whole world safe from Covid-19,” said Islamic Foundation.

It also urged not to visit graveyards and shrines on the occasion to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in their messages to greet Muslims in the country and around the world on the occasion, also urged the devotees to offer their prayers at home, reported BSS.
