Muslims across Bangladesh are set to observe the holy Shab-e-Qadr or Lailatul Qadr on Wednesday night.

This night is said to be the night when the first verses of the Holy Quran were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). 

Muslim devotees across Bangladesh and the rest of the world will offer special prayers on this night, seeking mercy and blessings of the Almighty. 

Usually, special prayers and sermons are held in mosques, including the Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in Dhaka, on this night. 

But this year, it’s different because of the Covid-19 situation. 

On this occasion, Thursday will be a public holiday in Bangladesh. 

According to the Holy Quran, Lailatul Qadr, 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.

Devotees visit graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of their near and dear ones on this occasion.

Newspapers publish special articles while state-run Bangladesh Betar, Bangladesh Television, and private television channels telecast special programs highlighting the significance of Lailatul Qadr.
