The Khoja Shia Ithnaashri Mosque hosted the event on the night of the 23rd of Ramadan.

A number of Al-Mustafa International University’s graduates as well as Shia Muslims from India and Pakistan also took part in the rituals.

The programs marking the Night of Qadr included recitation of the Jawshan Kabir and Abu Hamza Thumali supplications, religious speeches and recitation of the Quran.

The mosque is also hosting an Itikaf (religious retreat) ceremony on the last ten days of the holy month of Ramadan.

The Qadr Night, also known as the Night of Destiny, is a significant event in Islamic culture. It’s the night when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and its importance is said to surpass that of a thousand months.  

The exact night of Ramadan that is considered the Night of Destiny is unclear. Sunnis typically believe it’s one of the last ten nights of Ramadan, most commonly the 27th night. Shias, on the other hand, believe it’s either the 19th, 21st, or 23rd night of Ramadan, with the 23rd night being the most likely.

The Night of Qadr is considered the most important night of the year in Islamic culture. As per a narration from the Prophet (PBUH), it’s one of God’s gifts to Muslims, a gift not bestowed upon any previous nations.
