Ramadan Day 26 – The 27th Night

“Whereas many of us are used to the Gregorian calendar, Muslims also follow the Hijri (Lunar) calendar to set dates. Interestingly, whereas many of us are used to night following day, in the Hijri calendar, night comes first. In other words, the next day begins after sunset (not 1 second after midnight), thus the title above. The photographs below relate to the worship that occurred during the 27th night. The last ten days of Ramadan result in a concerted focus on worship. The Qur’an was revealed within the last 10 days of Ramadan and it is a time for greater reflection and to seek (through prayer) what is within ones heart and mind.”
