Shab-e-Barat on February 25

Dhaka, Feb 11: The Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune, will be observed throughout Bangladesh on the night of February 25 (Sunday) as the new noon of the holy month of Shaban of Hijri 1445 was sighted in the sky of Bangladesh Sunday evening.

‘As the new crescent was sighted in the country’s sky today, the counting of the holy month of Shaban of Hijri 1445 will begin from tomorrow (Monday) and the holy Shab-e-Barat will be observed on the night of February 25,’ an Islamic Foundation (IF) press release said here this evening after a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee.

Additional Secretary of the Religious Affairs Ministry Md Abdul Awal Hawlader chaired the meeting held at the IF conference room of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque here.

The Muslims consider Shab-e-Barat as one of the three most sacred nights and believe that on this night Almighty Allah decides the fate of all human beings fixing their ‘rizq’ (livelihood) for the next year.

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