The Lailatul Qadr or Shab-e-Qadr, the holiest and most blessed night for Muslims, will be observed across the country tonight with due solemnity and religious fervour.
Muslim devotees will spend the night seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of the country as well as the Muslim Ummah.
According to the holy Quran, this is superior to a thousand nights as the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in this night.
The devout Muslims usually pass the night offering special prayers, recitation from the holy Quran, holding milad mahfil, zikr, and other religious rituals at mosques and their houses.
President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today greeted the countrymen and the Muslim Ummah across the world on the occasion of the Shab-e-Qadr.
