Glasgow has welcomed the world with an exuberant and proud opening ceremony of the 20th Commonwealth Games at the city’s Celtic Park. The Queen  attended the event - a proud, energetic and quirky celebration of Scottish culture, including the Loch Ness Monster and Tunnocks Tea Cakes. Actor John Barrowman led the evening’s entertainment, as he paraded around the arena singing the praises of Scotland. He also planted a same-sex kiss on one of the performers at a mock Gretna Green wedding. Rod Stewart was the biggest name performing at the ceremony, which ended with a spectacular fireworks display 

“We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: And what will explain to thee what the night of power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand: Peace!…This until the rise of morning!

 Al Quran,  Surah Al Qadr 97:1-5
