The moon of Hijri month of Rajab (1442 Hijri) was not sighted anywhere across the country on Friday. The holy Shab-e-Meraj will be observed on the night of March 11 (Thursday) with due respect and religious fervor as the month of Rajab will begin on Sunday.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee at the Islamic Foundation at Baitul Mukarram in the capital this evening with Additional Secretary of the Ministry of Religious Affairs Altaf Hossain Chowdhury in the chair.
On the night of 26th Rajab every year, Muslims observe Shab-e-Meraj when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) embarked on a special journey to meet Allah.
