New Delhi:

Shab-e-Qadar, the night of power and blessings, was observed across Kashmir valley with religious fervour as the historic Jamia Masjid in the summer capital witnessed the largest congregation of devotees. Chief priest Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a tweet wrote: “Laylat-al-Qadr(Night of Power) observed across Kashmir. Tens of thousands of faithful including a large number of women participated in all night prayers and Zikr at the historic #JamaMasjid in Srinagar seeking forgiveness of Almighty Allah and acceptance of their supplications (sic).”

As part of the festivities, Muslims thronged mosques and shrines across the valley Saturday night for prayers and recitation of the Quran as the Muslim fasting month of Ramadhaan is about to end.

Along with the Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta area of the city, scores of devout Muslims gathered at Hazratbal, Dast-e-Geer Sahib and Sayed Yaqoob Shah shrines.
