Chaand Raat is the moon night celebrated in Muslim countries and within Muslim communities to enjoy the blessings of God bestowed upon the believers of Islamic Monotheism as a reward of fasting in the Month of Ramadan and in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s act of sacrifice for sake of Allah Almighty.
