LAHORE: Shab-e-Qadr, a night that is considered to be equal to praying for 1000 months, would be observed tonight (Saturday) with religious zeal and fervour.
The Islamic scholars said that Shab-e-Qadr falls on night of 27 Ramazan but it is better to search it in odd nights of sacred month’s last Ashra.
The night has special significance for the Muslims as angels come down on the earth as per order of Allah stay there till dawn of the day.
The locals decorate mosques, houses and streets with colorful pennants and buntings whereas the faithful also organize several gatherings and Mahafil-e-Naat to achieve the Almighty s forgiveness and blessings in the world and the life hereafter.
The religious scholars also throw light on importance of the night and highlight the teachings of Islam and life of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) so that the followers could lead their lives according to Holy Quran and Sunnah.
