The holy Shab-e-Meraj will be celebrated tonight across the nation with due respect and religious fervour.
The women devotees offer prayers in special gatherings inside their homes during all the night, whereas males used to offer prayers in specially decorated Mosques for seeking the blessings of Allah.
The Muslims every year on the 27th night of the Arabic month of Rajab celebrate the moment. On this night, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had embarked on a unique journey to meet Allah.
In the journey, the Prophet (PBUH) travelled on the “Buraq” to Heaven where Allah gave him instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayers.
Marking the holy night, Islamic Foundation (IF) will arrange a ‘Waaz’ and ‘Milad’ mehfil on the importance and significance of Shab-e-Meraj at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in the capital after Asar prayers, an IF press release said.
Imam of the mosque Hafez Moulana Mohammad Mohiuddin Qasim will pass a lecture at the waaz mehfil with IF secretary Kazi Nurul Islam in the chair.
