Sindh Declares Holiday for Shab-e-Barat

In a recent announcement, the Sindh government declared a public holiday for schools and colleges on February 26 in honor of Shab-e-Barat. This decision, made at a Steering Committee meeting, affects both public and private educational institutions administered by the College Education Department. Shab e Barat, often called The Night of Fortune and Forgiveness, holds immense significance for Muslims, occurring on the 15th night of the Islamic month, Shaban, just before the start of Ramadan. Believers observe this night with special prayers for unity, prosperity, and peace, considering it a time when Allah makes judgments for the coming year.

As a result, schools and other educational institutions in Sindh will remain closed on February 26 (Monday). This public holiday aligns with the decisions made by Sindh’s sub-committee of the steering committee on education, acknowledging the importance of Shab-e-Barat. Muslims globally participate in religious gatherings and visit graveyards on this night, symbolizing a collective devotion to seeking forgiveness and offering prayers for their loved ones.
