Lailat al-Qadr (The Night of Power)

Lailat al-Qadr (The Night of Power)

More than two million worshipers of all ages gathered on Sunday evening at the Haram Al-Masjid (Grand Mosque) in Makkah to perform the evening prayers and Taraweeh on the blessed Lailat al-Qadr ("Night of Power"). Muslims believe Lailat al-Qadr, one of the last ten days of Ramadan, is the night when the first verses of the Qur'an were revealed to Prophet Muhammad. (AN photos by Bashir Saleh)
