Laylat al Qadr is the most important night of the Muslim holy month and marks the revelation of the first verses of the Holy Quran to the Prophet Muhammad through the angel Gabriel.
Muslims around the world observed Laylat al Qadr or the “Night of Power”.
It is on this night, which falls during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, that Muslims believe that Allah sent the angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad and revealed the first verses of the Holy Quran.
The exact day of the night is not officially known, but Muslims are advised to look for Laylat al Qadr during the last odd nights of Ramadan.
Muslims generally worship, perform prayers and recite the Quran during all these nights
Although the exact date remains unknown, Laylat al Qadr is widely considered to be the 27th night of Ramadan.
The Quran says that Laylat al Qadr is better than 1,000 months, which equals more than 83 years.
The end of Ramadan is greeted with a three-day holiday called Eid al Fitr. Children often receive new clothes, gifts and money.
Muslims attend Eid prayers early in the morning the day after Ramadan. Families usually spend the day together in ancestral homes or in parks, eating in daylight for the first time in a month.
