22 The Night Of Divine Determination

The Night Of Divine Determination

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.

Don’t forget to remove your shoes before entering the mosque.

The Night of Divine Determination is better than a Thousand months. It is often said that praying throughout this night is rewarded equally with praying for a thousand months (just over 83 years i.e. a lifetime). Allah has made it compulsory upon believers to fast by day, and voluntary to pray by night.

It is believed that Koran was sent down in the night of Al-Qadr.

Reading  Taraweeh Prayer.

Those who will spend the night in praying will get forgiveness of their sins.


The fitness instructor believes that a human must be physically strong and have a pure heart.

It’s high time to analyze mistakes made in the previous days and think over future plans.

Chief Imam is getting ready to speak in a live television broadcast.

Women are not allowed to enter the men’s section of the mosque and must pray separately.

Those who couldn’t attend the mosque could watch the prayer on TV.


However, everybody pray together in the street, both men and women.

This mother of two children is happy to celebrate the holiday and is not going to sleep the whole night.

During praying women need to be more concentrated than men. They must wear free and non-transparent clothes that will cover the entire body except hands and face.

    Seems like a lot of trouble to get sins forgiven. Perhaps better not to sin in the first place?

    Wow… I think the Koran is sent down on the 17th of Ramadhan, not on the night of Layt Al-Qadr.
