Tonight, Shab-e-Barat will be celebrated with great devotion and reverence. On that night, the believers will perform nawafil and ask their Lord for forgiveness of their major and minor sins.
The scholars also call this night the night of the decisions of sustenance, health, life, death and good and evil. So, the believers ask for forgiveness and pardon on that night and also ask Allah for mercy and grace.
Special ceremonies are also arranged on the occasion of Shab-e-Barat, while a large number of people visit the cemeteries and place flowers on the graves of their loved ones as well as pray for their forgiveness.
Special prayers are organized at mosques around the country on Shab-e-Barat but this year, due to the Coronavirus, the Ulema Council of Pakistan has appealed the nation to worship at home in this grand night and apologize for their sins before Allah Almighty.
Scholars say that the worship of Shab-e-Barat is its enjoyment. Today seek the mercy and protection of Allah in the current atmosphere of the coronavirus epidemic and request Allah to save us all.
