Shab-e-Baraat is celebrated on the night of the 14th day of the month of Shabaan in the Muslim calendar. According to belief, the destinies of men for the coming year are recorded on this night. All over India, Muslims stay awake all night, reciting the holy Quran. People also visit the graves of their dead ones to pay their obeisance. However, these customs are not practised anywhere outside the Indian sub-continent.
