Holy Shab-E-BARAT, Virtues of the holy night of mid-Shaban.
The night of the 15th of the month of Shaban claims significance. Rizik and wealth were distributed on this night. Life is increased or decreased. Naafl prayers should be done more and more on the night of mid-Shaban. If you perform Naafl Ibadat in your own house, you will get more sawab. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) performed naafl prayers in His house.
It is narrated in the hadith of Ibn Majah and Bayhaqi, ‘Allah first ascended to heaven that night and called the people and said,‘ Is there any sinner among you who will ask forgiveness from Me, I will forgive him. If any of you ask me for sustenance, I will give him sustenance. If any one of you is sick, let him ask me, I will cure him. Thus Allah continued to call the servant till Subeh Sadiq. Then any prayer will be accepted. ‘
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Rajab is the month of Allaah, Shaaban is my month and Ramadaan is the month of my Ummah. The month of Shaban has a special status in Islamic law. Shaban protects from sin, Ramadan purifies people. Shaban is said to be the month announcing the arrival of Ramadan.
Hazrat Usama (ra) narrates, ‘One day I asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) why he fasted more and more in this (Shaaban) month. He replied, “People give more importance to the two months of Rajab and Ramadan and also fast.” But the middle one ignores this month. But in this month the deeds of the servant are presented in the court of Allah. My wish is that I fast while presenting my deeds in the court of Allah. That is why I fast more and more in the month of Sha’ban. ‘Musnad Ahmad, Nasai, Abu Dawood.
Hazrat Abdul Quader Jilani (ra) in his book ‘Guniyatut Talibin’ said that Ayesha Siddiqa (ra) heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say that in four nights including Shabebarat, Allaah opened the doors of His mercy for the people of the world. The door of mercy is open for His servants from sunset on 14 Shaban to Fajr on 15 Shaban.
The importance and virtue of this night’s prayer is immense. Gabriel (peace be upon him) once came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah! You get up, pray and pray to Allah. Because it is the night of 15 Shaban. On this night, Allah opened the door of 100 mercy for His servants. You pray for your ummah. Narrated from Hazrat Ali (RA). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘When the night of the 15th of Shabaan (the night of the 14th day) comes, spend it in prayers and fast the next day.’ See Sunan Ibn Majah.
