falls on the 15th day of the Islamic month of Shaban. Muslims pray in preparation for Ramzan and seek forgiveness of their sins on the day. Special prayers and sermons marked the ocassion which were held at Bara Masjid and Banseria mosques of the Tangla town besides at number of mosques at Panery,Garuajhar,Dimakuchi,Ghagra,Kalaigaon and its interior areas. Houses, mosques and graveyards were also illuminated by candles and strands of electric bulbs to provide a joyful ambiance to the festival.

Many also visited graveyards and remembered their dear ones.
