Shab-e-Barat observed with religious reverence


Shab-e-Barat was observed with religious reverence across the country on Tuesday night. On this particular night, the majority of faithful seek forgiveness from Allah Almighty and the people whose rights were usurped consciously or unconsciously.

They prefer to keep fast on the very next day to express submissiveness in the court of Allah Almighty and beg His countless blessings for both the worlds. The faithful have organized several gatherings and Mahafil-e-Naat to achieve Allah Almighty’s blessing in the world and the life hereafter.

They bowed before the Allah and pray for getting rid of the menace of terrorism besides showing right path to disgruntled people, playing in the hands of anti-state elements.
