Lailat al Bara'a

Lailat al Bara'a is always remembered in the Muslim community, but for different and distinct reasons.

In the Sunni context, this is a night where Muslims worship Allah and seek refuge with Him. It is at this night that Allah decides the fate of all people living on Earth for the coming year. It is also called the Night of Emancipation.

Apart from that, al-Mahdi is considered a key figure in Islam as Muslims believe that upon his arrival he will spread absolute justice in a world full of pure evil and that he will establish Islam as the world religion.
