Islamic scholars ask Muslims to say prayers of Shab-e-Barat at home

Islamic scholars have urged Muslim devotees to say prayers at the Holy night of Shab-e-Barat staying at home instead of going to mosques due to the outbreak of pandemic coronavirus.

They also urged Muslims to offer prayers along with recitation from the Holy Quran, zikr and other religious rituals for the well-being of the whole mankind.

The holy Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, is being observed in the country with due religious fervour and prayers.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Foundation has urged people to offer prayers at home instead of crowding into mosques for the sake of social distancing amid spread of coronavirus.

Earlier issuing a press release, it also banned gathering at the graveyards and mazar.

Citing the instructions of World Health Organisation (WHO) and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Islamic Foundation said, “All are urged to follow the Islamic Foundation’s directive.”

Shab-e-Barat is the night when Allah arranges the affairs of the following year. On this night, Allah writes the destinies of all the creations for the coming year by taking into account their past deeds.

Seeking divine blessings for the well-being of mankind, Muslim devotees offer special prayers, recite verses from the Holy Quran, hold milad, zikr and other religious rituals. The Muslim devotees also pass the whole night offering prayers.
