The night everyone was there
WANA (Apr 12) – The second night of the Laylatul Qadr ceremony was held all across Iran.
On this night, mosques and holy places were full of Iranians who showed up with all types and appearances and prayed to their God.
In recent years, many media opposing the Islamic Republic of Iran are constantly promoting the fact that young Iranians are no longer interested in religious beliefs as before and becoming irreligious.
Field realities show something else. The presence of millions of young people in religious ceremonies refutes the claim of the foes.
We see the same crowd at political rallies. The last one was the march on the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution (22 Bahman).
The high participation in that march was while some people thought they could turn more Iranians into disagreeing with the regime through street riots.
Few politicians, analysts, and opponents of Iran imagined that such a crowd would come to the streets to defend the authorities.
The high presence of the participants in the revolution anniversary march did not mean approving all actions of the current administration.
They affirm the system as a whole. The participation of millions of young people in religious ceremonies did not confirm the activities of the government but represented the beliefs of Iranians in Islam and Shia religion.
Shia Muslims similarly believe that Laylat al-Qadr is to be found in the last ten odd-numbered nights of Ramadan but mostly on the 19th, 21st or 23rd of Ramadan with 23rd being the most important night.
Imam Ali was martyred on 21st Ramadan 40 A.H. by an assassin who mortally wounded the Holy Imam with a poisoned sword in the Mosque at Kufa during morning prayers on 19th Ramazan.
Imam Ali (as), the First Muslim, an intimate associate of the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh) in the life and holy Islamic mission, the Immediate Successor to the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh) and the First Holy Immaculate Imam of the Shi’ites in the World was born inside the Holy Kaaba at Makkah on Friday, the 13th day of Rajab,
