Last Sunday Muslims from all over the globe celebrated one of the most important religious holidays called Night Of Determination or Laylat al-Qadr. Below are the pictures that show how the holiday was celebrated in the Central Mosque of Almaty.
According to the Koran, God determines the course of the world for the following year during the night between the 26th and the 27th days of Ramadan. It’s time when people don’t sleep the whole night, pray and ask God to forgive their sins.
The central hall of the mosque is empty as believers are still busy with breaking their fast.
Nobody is willing to miss the Isha night prayer. During 30 days of fasting Muslims refrain from food, drinking, sexual intimacy, bad thoughts and actions from dawn until sunset.
