Iranian people have observed the Laylat al-Qadr (the Night of Destiny), all across the Islamic Republic of Iran. Laylat al-Qadr (the Night of Destiny) represents a great chance for Muslims during the holy fasting month of Ramadan to purify their souls and further focus on the spiritual aspects of life. People mark Laylat al-Qadr, which is believed to be the night when the first verses of the holy Qur’an were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) some 14 centuries ago. The Night of Destiny is also thought to be the night when God decides the fate of everyone for the coming year. Muslims recite the holy Qu’ran, hold vigils until dawn in prayers and supplications and ask God to forgive them for their sins. Muslims also have special wishes and prayers on this special night.
