Flocks of believers streamed into the holy Shrines of Imam Ali (as) in the holy city of Najaf (Iraq), Imam Hussain (as) and Hazrat Abbas Alamdar (as) in the holy city of Karbala (Iraq), Hazrat Imam Moosa Kazim (as) and Hazrat Imam Muhammad Taqi (as) in Kazmain Sharifain (Iraq), Hazrat Imam Ali Naqi (as) and Hazrat Imam Hasan Askari (as) in Samara (Iraq), Hazrat Imam Ali Reza (as) in the holy city of Mash’had (Iran), Hazrat Fatimah Masouma (as) in the holy city of Qom (Iran), Hazrat Zainab (as) and Hazrat Sakina (as) in Damascus (Syria) as well as mosques, hussainiyaat, imambargahs, aza-khanas, maatam, tombs and Islamic centers to perform A’mal of the Layla-tul-Qadr and attend majalis-e-aza.

A’maal are offering special prayers, reciting particular adiyah and seeking forgiveness from Allah.

Majalis-e-aza were held after A’maal of the Night of Glory attended by large numbers of followers of Ahlul bayt (as). In some places, majalis-e-aza were held after dawn prayer.

Sahour banquets were served.

Speakers in their addresses highlighted the elevated status of Hazrat Ali ibn-e-Abi Talib (as) in light of Quran and traditions of holy Prophet (saww), and described the martyrdom of Maula-e-Kaenaat (as).
