Muslims will observe the holy night of Shab-e-Qadar, or Lailatul Qadar, Saturday, marking the revelation of the holy Quran.

The Quran was believed to have been revealed on this night to show mankind the path to worldly and eternal emancipation.

It is observed with special prayers at mosques, seeking blessings from Allah. Devotees also visit the graves of their near and dear ones and offer prayers for the salvation of the departed souls.
 
President Iajuddin Ahmed and chief adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed gave separate messages on the occasion and conveyed greetings to Muslims across the world.
 
The day after Shab-e-Qadar is an annual public holiday.
