Shab-E-Qadr 2023: What Is The Significance Of This Night?
Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is observed with great religious zeal by Muslims all over the world. For the people who live in the town, the last five odd nights of this month are very important.
They observe Shab-e-Qadr, also known as Laylat Al-Qadr, on one of these nights. Devotees pray all night on what is considered a very lucky occasion. They think that God’s blessings and mercy are bountiful on this night and that their sins have been forgiven.
On Shab-e-Qadr, Muslim followers stay awake all night and recite Quranic verses. When special prayers are performed in mosques, Islamic experts recite the holy Quran and explain the meaning of key verses to those in attendance.
Devotees pray to Allah for long life, peace, and growth for themselves, their families, relatives, and friends.
Why do Muslims observe Shab-e-Qadr?
Muslims think that praying for five nights is superior to praying for a thousand months. So, Muslims pray with great religious zeal on Sab-e-Qadr.
Why is there confusion about date?
Muslims believe that the Holy Quran’s first verses were revealed to Prophet Muhammad on Shab-e-Qadr. ut But no one knows when this occurred. As a result of this uncertainty, many Muslims pay special attention to each odd-numbered day of Ramzan’s last ten days.
This indicates that the holiest night in Islam could occur on the 21st, 23rd, 25th, 27th, or 29th of Ramzan.
