The Muslims all over the world are preparing themselves to meet the Predetermination Night, which falls on September 5-6 this year.

The Predetermination Night is traditionally marked on the 27th day of the Holy Month of Ramadan and considered one of the most important dates of the year. According to the legend the first surah of Koran “The Clot”, beginning with the words: “Read! In the name of your God, who created a human being from the clot”, was sent to the Prophet Muhammad on this very night.

It is considered the destinies of people for the next year ahead are written on this night so the Muslims are recommended to meet the Predetermination Night with wakefulness and prayers.
