Anantnag, Jun 12(PTK)Shab-e-Qadar was today observed with full religious fervour at south kashmir’s Khiram Dargah which is located 26km away from the district headquarters.
Muslims from nearby villages thronged Khiram dargah to attend the congregational nightlong prayers with reference to holy Lailat-ul-Qadr, a night considered to be equal to praying for 1000 months, with the religious reverence tonight.
Laylatul Qadr is one of the most blessed nights of the Islamic calendar and it is believed that there is no other night that stands equal to it in sacredness and Holiness in Islam. This night usually resides in the last ten days of Ramadan and within those days it is in the odd nights of the Ashra especially the night is observed on every 27 day of the Ramzan-ul-Mubarak.
The nightlong prayer was headed by Head Preacher Moulvi Nizam ud Din which started with a Tarawi ( Prayers performed by Sunni Muslims at night in the Islamic month of Ramadan).
Meanwhile special arrangements of heating, sanitation, lighting etc were made by Auqaf Islamia Khiram for devotees(PTK)
