The month of Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. During this one any good Muslim must fast all day until sunset. Towards the end of this blessed month, a special night called the Night of Destiny among Muslims is celebrated by the whole community. Baraka was no exception to the rule.
On the 02/07/2016 the population of Baraka celebrated the night of DESTINY « Night of merit ». It´s the most important night of Ramadan for Muslims because God answers the prayers of the pious and devoted believers. It corresponds to the night the 26 to 27th day of Ramadan. The Night of Destiny is celebrated around among Muslims because it was during the latter that the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by the angel Gabriel.
At Baraka, the population mobilized to celebrate this night by first conducting a contribution, youth (1000 CFA) and adults (3000CFA). The organization of the celebrations of that night was supported by the Committee of the Mosque of Baraka. Youth, children and adults gathered to give thanks to God through prayers. A Baraka it´s the football field, where we organize Events. So chairs and tarps were set up and the square was decorated.
The celebration began with a recital of the Qur’an, with the arrival of our guests coming from all over to make a prayer for world peace, the union of hearts, and the fulfillment of all our projects. Prayers were also made at the place of all those who were involved in the realization of the « new Baraka ». After prayers, instead a free distribution of meals and snacks by young people to make even more beautiful evening. And so it was until dawn.
