The holy Shab-e-Meraj will be observed in the country on the night of March 22.
The National Moon Sighting Committee made the decision at a meeting held at the Baitul Mukarram office of Islamic Foundation yesterday evening.
On the night of 26th Rajab every year, Muslims observe Shab-e-Meraj when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) embarked on a special journey to meet Allah.
In the journey, the Prophet travelled on the "Buraq" to Heaven where Allah gave him some instructions to take back to the faithful regarding the details of prayers.
Different Islamic organisations will arrange special prayers and milad mahfils in mosques and other places to seek blessings of the Almighty Allah.
Devotees offer special prayers all the night in mosques and at home to seek blessings of Allah for the welfare of the entire nation and the Muslim Ummah.
