Islamabad: Muslims around the world observed ‘Shab-e-Barat’ with a traditional religious zeal at homes instead of mosques as a one of the preventive measure to stop the possible threat of coronavirus spread.

Traditionally, large numbers of the faithful spent the blessed nigh at the mosques to seek forgiveness and offered prayers to gain Allah’s blessing, but fear of coronavirus spread compelled the authorities across the country to take drastic measures of closing down the mosques asking people to pray at their homes.

Ulema and prayer-leaders had appealed to the masses to make diligent and whole-hearted supplications before Allah on the blessed night for warding off the deadly pandemic of coronavirus.

Earlier, Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC) had also urged the nation to observe ‘Shab-e-Tauba’ (night of forgiveness) instead of ‘Shab-e-Barat’ as coronavirus cases surge across the country.

The council said that the people should pray at home and that congregations in the mosques would not take place.

‘Say all your prayers indoors,’ the council urged as Pakistan’s coronavirus tally shot past 4,000. The said night, which was deemed as the night of blessings and accountability by Allah, was observed from homes.
