Mirwaiz spoke about the significance of Shab-e-Baraat and said it was a divine night when Almighty Allah arranges affairs of the next one year. On Shab-e-Barat, Allah writes the destinies of all his creation for the coming year by taking into account their past deeds.
While reciting Quran, Mirwaiz said the occasion provides opportunity to spend the night in praying and seeking forgiveness and blessings from Allah. He asked people to implement the teachings of Quran and Islam and specially stressed upon the youth to follow the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) so as to eradicate social evils and bring reforms in the society.
Mirwaiz said the Quran was the complete way of life for mankind and till judgment day Muslims would continue to be guided by the holy book. He said it was distressing to see that Muslims do not follow the teachings of Quran as they should have which has become the main cause of suffering and anguish for them.
Mirwaiz along with thousands of people prayed to Allah for forgiveness from sins, for well being of the Umaah in general and for the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir in particular.
