Special programs have been scheduled for Laylat al-Raghaib, also known as Night of Wishes, in the holy city of Karbala, reported.


Special programs have been scheduled for Laylat al-Raghaib, also known as Night of Wishes, in Iraq’s Karbala.


Accordingly, a ceremony will be held in the holy city on the first Thursday night of the lunar month of Rajab which falls on February 3 this month.


Muslims traditionally recite a special set of prayers and read from the Holy Quran on this night.


It is believed that every wish, request, and hope will be fulfilled if asked for on Laylat al-Raghaib.


Raghaib comes from the root "raghba" in Arabic, which means to desire, seek or tend toward.


It is said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to fast on the first Thursday of Rajab and recite twelve rak'ats of prayers in six sets of 2 rak'ats between Maghrib prayer and Isha prayer.
