Worshippers hold vigils, pray on Laylat-al-Qadr across Iran

Worshippers held all-nigh vigils at mosques and religious sites across Iran on Laylat-al-Qadr (the Night of Destiny), saying prayers in supplication and asking for divine forgiveness.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims stay up all night, say prayers and read Quranic verses on three nights known as Laylat-al-Qadr, when the Holy Quarn was revealed to the Prophet Mohammad.

Based on Islamic precepts, Muslims’ destiny for the year ahead is determined on Laylat-al-Qadr.

The exact date of the revelation is not clear, but according to Islamic sources, it is believed to be either on 19th, 21st or 23rd of the holy month of Ramadan.
