Lailatul Qadr is being observed across the country, including Lahore, with reverence and fervor, amid elaborate security arrangements.

As per Islamic scholars, worship on Lailatul Qadr is equal to praying for 1,000 months. Allah Almighty has not revealed the exact timings of the night and directed Muslims to find it on all odd nights in last Ashra of Ramazan which are: 21, 23, 25, 27 and 29. Scholars, however, believe the night mostly falls on Ramazan 27.

Major mosques make special arrangements for the faithful to spend all night while praying for blessings and forgiveness of Allah Almighty.
