Also known as Bara'at Night, the The Night of Records, Shab e-Barat is a holiday observed on the 14th night of Sha'aban, the eighth month in the Islamic calendar.

Shab e-Barat takes place on the full moon and the date of the public holiday in Bangladesh is dependent on the sighting of the new moon signifying the start of the month of Sha'aban.

The traditions of Shab e-Barat

Muslims believe that on the night of Shab e-Barat, God writes the destinies of all men for the coming year by taking into account the deeds committed by them in the past.

Muslim devotees will offer special prayers, recite from the holy Qur'an and perform other religious rituals throughout the night of Shab e-Barat, hoping to receive divine blessings for the wellbeing of mankind.

For some Muslims, it is also part of Shab e-Barat traditions to visit the graves of their loved ones and pray for the peace of their souls. In Bangladesh, many people will fast on the day following Shab e-Barat night and some people will give out food and sweets to their neighbours and the poor.
