Shab-e-Barat, the holy night of fortune and forgiveness, will be observed on the night of April 9 as the Sha'ban moon was not sighted in Bangladesh sky on Wednesday.


The decision came from a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at Islamic Foundation office at Baitul Mukarram in Dhaka, said a press release of the Islamic Foundation.

According to Muslim belief, Shab-e-Barat is the night when Allah arranges the affairs of His creations for the following year by taking into account their past deeds.

Shab-e-Barat also means the night of forgiveness. On this exalted night, Muslims pray to Allah both in preparation for the holy month of Ramadan and seeking forgiveness of their sins.
