Shab-e-BaratHoly Shab-e-Barat, the night of fortune and forgiveness, will be observed in the country on Apr 9 (Thursday) as the Shaban moon was not sighted in Bangladesh sky on Wednesday (Mar 25).
The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee held at the Islamic Foundation's Baitul Mukarram office in the evening with Islamic Foundation's Director General Anis Mahmud in the chair.

Muslim devotees will offer special prayers, recite from the Holy Quran, hold milad, zikr and other religious rituals seeking divine blessings for the wellbeing of mankind.
