    Muslims in Iran mark last night of honor


    by PressTV

    Prayers and invocations at the last Latlat ul-Qadr or the night of honor; a night sacred to all Muslims. In the Islamic culture the word Qadr is equal to honor and dignity. Every year during the 19th, 21st, and 23rd of the holy month of Ramadan in the Islamic Lunar calendar Muslims stay awake and pray through out the entire night. The ceremony known as Ehya is a chance for them to pray and ask for God’s blessing. Iranians mark these nights by gathering in mosques; they pray for the sick and those in need as well as their loved ones.
