Celebrated by Muslims world-wide during the last ten days of Ramadan, Islamic tradition points to the Night of Power (Eid al-Fitr) as being the night that the Qur'an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. Adherents to the faith are instructed to observe the Night of Powe by spending this time in deeds of devotion.
Rituals carried out during this time include retreating to the mosque to read Qur'an and repeating special supplications while reflecting on the meaning of Allah's message to all who observe the Islamic faith.
