Update : 22 Feb 2023, 11:09

Muslims in Bangladesh will observe the holy Shab-e-Barat on the night of March 7 as the Shaban moon was sighted in the country’s sky on Tuesday.

As the moon was sighted, the month of Shaban will begin from February 22. 

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Moon Sighting Committee, held at the conference room of Baitul Mukarram, in the evening.

State Minister for Religious Affairs Md Faridul Haque Khan presided over the meeting.

The announcement was made after analysing data collected from the district administrations, Islamic Foundation, Bangladesh Meteorological Department, and Space Research and Remote Sensing Institute.

Shab-e-Barat is observed on the 15th night of the Arabic month of Shaban. Muslims offer special prayers, recite the holy Quran, and take part in other religious rituals.
