Muslims across the country are set to observe the holy Shab-e-Qadr or Lailatul Qadr tonight.
The night marks the revelation of the first verses of the holy Quran to Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).
According to the holy Quran, Lailatul Qadr or the Night of Decree is better than a 1,000 nights as the angels and the spirits descend therein with the permission of Almighty Allah.
Muslims traditionally observe the occasion through nightlong prayers, milad mahfils, Quran Khwani, and religious discussions at homes and mosques.
Devotees also visit graveyards to seek eternal blessings for the departed souls of near and dear ones.
Newspapers publish special articles while the state-run radio and television, and other private TV channels air special programmes to highlight the significance of the night.
Thursday will be a public holiday.
