Notably, the news of first positive Coronavirus cases in Malegaon came a day before Shab-e-Barat 2020 which is also known as mid-Shaban. On the occasion of Shab-e-Barat, Muslims seek forgiveness from the almighty for their past sins and visit graveyards to pray for their deceased relatives.
According to Muslims, on this auspicious night, fortunes of all humans for the next year are decided or God (Allah) forgives sinners. It is to be noted that not all Muslims observe this mid-Shaban night as holy, Salafis do oppose the recognition of this night.
