Choubret is a festival among the Mohammedans of India in commemoration. of the examination of departed souls by angels, the good angels recording the good deeds of this life, and the bad, angels the evil deeds. They believe that God examines this record; hence, at, the beginning of the feast they are moved with fear of the impending judgment, utter prayers, give alms, and examine themselves; but the occasion ends with illuminations, bonfires, and general rejoicing at the prospect of a favorable record for themselves. SEE DEAD, EXAMINATION OF.
