  1. Shab e Bara’t commencing on Saturday is the night of blessing and seeking pardon from God Almighty as the sacred night. As of tradition, alms are given and different special dishes are cooked and distributed at this night and some sit long for upto midnight praying and seeking pardon and gifts from God Almighty. Moreover, children celebrate the night making lights and fireballs and enjoy edibles. The ending of Qaqlasht Gala falls the same night where joy making and dancing shall be made according to program. We should fear God and make some amendment in that otherwise it will be a general apathy from the principles of Islam.
