Shab-e-Barat March 18

The holy Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, will be observed on the night of March 18 as the Shaban moon was not sighted in the country on Thursday.

According to Muslim belief, on this night, Allah writes the destinies of all the creations for the coming year by taking into account their past deeds, reports UNB.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at Islamic Foundation’s Baitul Mukarram office.

State Minister for Religious Affairs Md Faridul Haq Khan presided over the meeting.

Shab-e-Barat is observed on the 15th night of the Arabic month of Shaban. Muslims offer special prayers, recite the Quran, and take part in other religious rituals.
