Holy Shab-e-Barat on March 29

Holy Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, will be observed in the country on April 29 as the Shaban moon was not sighted in Bangladesh sky on Saturday.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at the Islamic Foundation's Baitul Mukarram office in the evening with state minister for religious affairs Md Faridul Haque Khan in the chair.

Shab-e-Barat is observed on the fifteenth night of Shaban month.

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

Muslim devotees will offer special prayers, recite from the Holy Quran, hold milad, zikr and other religious rituals seeking divine blessings for the wellbeing of mankind.
