Laylatul Bara`ah

Laylatul Bara`ah

On 24th & 25th February 2024, Lailat ul Bara’h, or the Night of Forgiveness, is a time of deep introspection for Muslims. Observed on the 15th night of Shabaan, it falls two weeks before Ramadan, with shifting dates in the Gregorian calendar. Rich in spiritual meaning, it’s dedicated to seeking forgiveness and contemplating one’s destiny for the coming year. It encapsulates the essence of ‘layltun’ (night) and ‘baraat’ (forgiveness) in Arabic, also known as ‘Shab E Barat’ in Persian and Urdu.


During this time, people pour their hearts into prayer for Allah’s mercy, both at the mosque and at home. Along with these deep moments, it’s pretty common to give to charity. In some places, they even light up the sky with fireworks, turning the night into a celebration of hope and starting anew on this night of forgiveness and getting back on track spiritually.
