27th Night Of Ramzan Believed To Be Layat al-Qadr Will Be Observed Today

Muslims around Pakistan are observing Thursday, 27the night of Ramzan which is also believed by many as Laylat al-Qadr, or the Night of Power, which represents the first revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad, as the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is heading toward the celebrations of Eid Al-Fitr.

The exact day of the night is not officially known but Muslims are told to search for Laylat Al Qadr during the last 10 days of Ramadan, particularly on the odd nights.

The night is referred as Laylat al-Qadr in the Quran and in Islamic belief. The last 10 days of Ramadan are considered to be some of the greatest days and nights of the year as Allah says in the Muslim holy book that “the Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.”

Muslims usually worship, perform prayer, and recite the Quran on this night.

Also, it is said that Prophet Muhammad said, “Whoever stays up (in prayer and remembrance of Allah) on the Night of Qadr, fully believing (in Allah’s promise of reward) and hoping to seek reward, he shall be forgiven for his past sins.”

Although the exact date remains unknown, Laylat al-Qadr is widely believed to be the 27th night of Ramadan.

This year, the night will be observed in the mosques across Pakistan on Thursday night after two years of COVID-19 restrictions.

Hundreds or even thousands of Muslims are expected to gather and pray together on this night at some of the country’s most popular mosques, especially Memon Masjid Karachi, Tuba mosque in Karachi, Data Darbar mosque in Lahore, Badshahi mosque in Lahore, Faisal mosque in Islamabad.
