15th Shabaan From Authentic Ahadees
Sadly sad in this era of Fitnaah, when we [Muslim] are bombarded with conspiracies hatred,mistrust,deviation,not from outside source but among st ourselves this post is definitely a reminder not only to WAKE UP ourselves but to remind and teach our children the true Beliefs of Islaam.

In the name of Allaah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise be to God, the Compassionate, and the Merciful. You alone we worship: and to You alone we turn for help. Guide us to the straight path: the path of those whom You have favored: not of those who have incurred Your wrath, nor of those who have gone astray.
Blessings and Peace be upon Allaahs Most Beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafaa (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
As Saalam o Alaiekum
Sadly sad in this era of Fitnaah, when we [Muslim] are bombarded with conspiracies hatred,mistrust,deviation,not from outside source but amongst ourselves this post is definitely a reminder not only to WAKE UP ourselves but to remind and teach our children the true Beliefs of Islaam.
Shockingly shocked.
No one stops us from going to cinemas, watch TV all day…sports and other baseless activities in which are kids are involved day and night.
[Not mentioning the haraam ones].
But out there people are spreading posts and rumors about gatherings of worship.
WHAT IS DONE ON SHAB E BARAA’AT NIGHT?
Firstly lets understand that..
1-PRAY NAFIL--[WHICH IS HALAAL]
2-READ QURAAN--- [WHICH IS HALAAL]
3-DO ASTAGHFAAR--[WHICH IS HALAAL]
4-READ DUROOD SHAREEF-[WHICH IS HALAAL]
5-VIST THE GRAVEYARD OF THEIR RELATIVES-[WHICH IS HALAAL]
6-LISTEN TO LECTURES--[WHICH IS HALAAL]
7-CONTEMPLATION--[WHICH IS HALAAL]
8-FAMILY GET TOGETHER –AWARENESS-RAMADAAN TALK--[WHICH IS HALAAL]
SO WHAT IS THE CONFUSION????
Even Ibn Taymiyyah, [THE WAHAABI SCHOOL OF THOUGHT –LEADER] a scholar notorious for refuting such things also accepts the virtue of the night of Shab e Bara'aat.
Ibn-Taimiyyah was asked about of the 15th night of Sha'baan. He replied:
اما ليلة النصف روئ فئ فضلهااحاديث واثار ونقل عن طانفتهمن السلف انهم كانوايصلون فيها فصلاة الرجل فيها وحده وقد تقدمه فيه سلف فيه حجته فلا ينكرمثل هزا
Translation: As for the 15th night of Sha’baan, there are many narrations and Athar (quotes from the Sahabaah’s) regarding its virtue. It has been reported of the salaf that they prayed in this night. Therefore, praying alone on this night, having precedence in the salaf, is sufficient evidence and something of this kind surely cannot be denied.
At another occasion, Ibn-Taimiyyah was asked the same question and he replied:
وسنل عن صلاة نصف شعبان فاجاب ازا صلئ الانسان ليلة النصف وحده اوفئ جماعته خاصته كما كان يفل جماعته خاصته كما كان يفعل طوانف من السلف فهواحسن
Translation: If one prays on this night alone or in a select company of people as many groups amongst the salaf did, "then it is good".
[Fatawa Ibn Taimiyyah Volume 23, Page 131-132]
He says: 'So many Ahaadees and reports exist regarding the excellence of the fifteenth night of Shabaan that one is compelled to accept that this night does possess some virtue'.
[9 Faydhul Qadeer page. 317, volume. 2]
At another occasion, Ibn-Taimiyyah was asked the same question and he replied:
وسنل عن صلاة نصف شعبان فاجاب ازا صلئ الانسان ليلة النصف وحده اوفئ جماعته خاصته كما كان يفل جماعته خاصته كما كان يفعل طوانف من السلف فهواحسن
There is another identical Hadees related from the Companion Abdul laah bin.'Amr (May Allaah be pleased with him) which says that the Prophet
[Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]
said:
"Allaah Ta’aalaa looks at His creation during the night of the 15th of Sha'baan and He forgives His servants except two- one intent on hatred and a murderer. , Ref : Musnad Ahmad 2/176 #6642.
Ibn Taymiyyah said:
ما يعمل للميت من أعمال البر، كالصدقة ونحوها، فإن هذا ينتفع به بنصوص السنة الصحيحة الصريحة، واتفاق الأئمة وكذلك العتق، والحج،بل قد ثبت عنه في الصحيحين أنه قال‏:‏‏(‏من مات وعليه صيام صام عنه وليه
. Translation: The deceased indeed gets benefit from the good deeds which are performed for him, such as giving Sadaqah, this is proven from explicit proofs of Sunnah and so are Imaams "UNANIMOUS UPON IT"
Similarly to free a slave on his behalf, to perform Hajj, rather it is proven from the righteous that Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] said:
If someone dies and he has some missed fasts then the Walee should fast on his behalf.
[Ibn Taymiyyah in Majmuaa al Fatawaa, Volume 7, Page No. 498]
Translation: If one prays on this night alone or in a select company of people as many groups amongst the salaf did, "then it is good".
[Fatawa Ibn Taimiyyah Volume 23, Page 131-132]
*Misconception # 1:* Allaah Kareem descends to the first heavens on this night to forgive us. Answer: The Prophet [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] said: "Every night when it is the last third of the night, our Creator Lord, the Superior, the Blessed, descends to the nearest heaven and says:
Is there anyone to invoke Me that I may respond to his invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone asking My forgiveness so that I may forgive him?
(Bukhaari Shareef 1145,Muslim 1261)
Reply from Ahle sunnat Wa Jamaa’at
This hadees refers to Praying TAHAJJUD at 3rd part of night [only] which is Tahajjud Time, This night has same blessing from start of night to End of it
Also
ALLAAH KAREEM IS FREE FROM SHAPE OR DESCENDNESS … ON 15TH OF SHABAAN IT MEANS HIS MERCIES DESCENDS
🌸 🍡🌸 🍡🌸 🍡 🌸 🍡 🌸
*Misconception # 2:* This is the night when our fate, lifespan, and provisions are decreed. Answer: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
“When the drop remains in the womb(of mother) for forty (days) or forty nights, the angel comes and says: “My Lord, will he be good or evil?”
And both these things would be written. Then the angel says:
“My Lord, would he be male or female?” And both these things are written. And his deeds and actions, *his death*, his livelihood; these are also recorded.
[Saheeh Muslim Hadees 6392]
Reply from Ahle sunnat Wa Jamaa’at
NO ONE IS DENYING THE ABOVE HADEES…ON THE 15TH OF SHABAAN, THE WHOLE YEARLY INSTRUCTIONS, IS GIVEN TO THE ANGELS …OF WHAT TO DO….WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN,WHO WILL BE BORN,DIE THAT YEAR ETC.
THE ABOVE HADEES TALK ABOUT THE CHARACTER [RECORDED HISTORY] OF THE PERSON TO BE BORN…HERE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT YEARLY REPORT INSTRUCTION.
RECORDED LIFE HAPPENING IS DIFFERENT AND GIVING THE YEARLY MANUAL INSTRUCTION TO THE ANGELS WHAT TO DO ALL YEAR AROUND IS DIFFERENT.
🌸 🍡🌸 🍡🌸 🍡 🌸 🍡 🌸
*Misconception # 3:* Deeds are shown (to Allaah Almighty) on 15th shaban Answer: Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said
“Deeds are shown (to Allaah Kareem) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.”
[Tirmidhi, 747; classed as Saheeh by al- Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1041.]
From Saheeh Muslim , Fasting on 15th is encouraged ,
‏عن ‏ ‏عمران بن حصين ‏ ‏رضي الله عنهما ‏‏أن رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال له ‏ ‏أو لآخر ‏ ‏أصمت من ‏ ‏سرر ‏ ‏شعبان قال لا قال فإذا أفطرت فصم يومين , Translation: Imraan bin Husaien [Rahamatul Laah Alaieh] reported that Holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) having said to him..
Did you fast in the "Middle of Sha'baan?" He said: No.
Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] said: If you did not observe fast, then you should observe fast for two days. [Saheeh Muslim Book 006, Number 2607]
🌸 🍡🌸 🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸
*Misconception # 4:* The night of the 15th of Shabaan should be singled out for special kinds of worship, prayer, etc. and they have a great reward Answer: There is no Saheeh Hadees concerning the night of the fifteenth of Shabaan.So this night is ordinary like other nights and the reward for praying/worshiping in this night will be the same as other nights.
SHOW US ONE HADEES, WHERE DOING A METRIOUS ACT OF WORSHIP IS FORBIDDEN.
It is admitted fact that every moment, second, minute, hour, day or night that is spent in the submission of Allaah Almighty and His Beloved Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is exceedingly meaningful and precious. But there are some days, nights and months which have their own weight and Allaah Kareem, the compassionate, lays immense stress upon them to unveil their importance to his rationale creatures.
Among those months, those hold much importance is Muharram, Rajab, Sha’baan.
The Holy Month of Sha’baan is one of the blessed months that holds much too for us from the mercy, compassion and kindness of Allaah Almighty.It is preparatory month that welcomes the holy month of Ramadaan.
If we study the life of our Beloved Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), He used to avail himself the moments of this month to the utmost and spend more time in adoration, submission of Allaah Almighty and seek salvation and earn the infinite mercy of Allaah [Ta’aalaa]
*FASTING AND EXTRA WORSHIP IN SHA`BAAN*
Once the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Sha’ baan is my month
As our Beloved Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) called it my month, so its significance and importance touches to the sky because everything that has got any link directly or indirectly with the holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) becomes an exalted thing for his true followers and mumineen.
*Hadees Number 1*
‏عن ‏ ‏عائشة أم المؤمنين ‏ ‏رضي الله عنها ‏ ‏أنها قالت ‏‏كان رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏يصوم حتى نقول لا يفطر ويفطر حتى نقول لا يصوم وما رأيت رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏استكمل صيام شهر قط إلا رمضان وما رأيته في شهر أكثر منه صياما في شعبان
Translation: Rasoolul Laah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to observe fasts (so continuously) that we said that he would not break, and did not observe (them) till we said that he would not fast: and I did not see the Rasoolul Laah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) completing the fast of a month, but that of Ramadaan, and I did not see him fasting more in any other month than that of Sha'baan.
[Saheeh Muslim Book 006, Hadees Number 2580]
🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸
*Misconception # 5:* Fasting on the day of 15th Shabaan has a special and great reward Answer: Fasting on 13th 14th 15th of every month is recommended not only on 15th Shabaan Prophet (peace be upon him) said
“If you fast any part of the month, then fast the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth.”
[Tirmidhi, 761; al- Nasaa’i, 2424; classed as Saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1038. ]
🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸
*Misconception # 6:* This is the night when the souls of departed ones return to their families. Answer: This thing has no basis in Quraan or Ahadees The souls can never return to this world. This is a fabrication and lie invented by people.
Reply from Ahle Sunnat Wa Jamaa’at
Visiting graves is a Sunnah, proofs are many
Though historical documentation, we know that on the night of forgiveness, the Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] visited Jannat ul Baqee, a graveyard in Madeenah. He offered supplications for the departed souls of his family and companions. Following in his footsteps, Muslims visit graveyards and Dargaahs, seeking forgiveness for themselves and for the souls of loved ones.
Frequenting graveyards remind of the transitory nature of the world. Death is the only reality of which there is universally no doubt. Reflecting on death reveals the urgency of living a sincere, honest and fruitful life.
, Visiting on Specific day is proved too ,
Let me quote the Arabic Hadees again From Tafseer ibn e khaseer , فيدخل فيسلم ثم ينصرف، رواه ابن جرير. ورواه ابن أبي حاتم من حديث إسماعيل بن عياش، عن أرطاة بن المنذر عن أبي الحجاج يوسف الألهاني قال: سمعت أبا أمامة، فذكر نحوه. وقد جاء في الحديث أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يزور قبور الشهداء في رأس كل حول، فيقول لهم: { سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَيْكُم بِمَا صَبَرْتُمْ فَنِعْمَ عُقْبَىٰ ٱلدَّارِ } وكذلك أبو بكر وعمر وعثمان , Translation :
The Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to go to the graves of the martyrs of Uhad once a year and also recite the verse of the Holy Qur’aan on excellence of patience. The Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray for them. When the beloved Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) passed away himself, the Khalifaa’s, HazratAbu-Bakr (رضي الله عنه), Hazrat Umar (رضي الله عنه), Hazrat Usman (رضي الله عنه) used to do the same thing. , Reference : , ►Tafseer Tabaari, , ►Tafseer Ibn-Kaseer for Quraan 13:20 , ►and Tafseer Qurtabi by Imaam Tabaari, Imaam Qurtabi commentary of Soorah Ra’d Verse 20.] , ► Shaami states and quotes same hadees in Vol. 1, Baabu Ziyaaratil-Quboor
🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸🍡🌸
*Misconception # 7:* Look at all those people doing it. How can they all be wrong? Answer: Allaah says, “And if you obey most of those in the earth, they will lead you astray from Allaah's way; they follow but conjecture and they only lie.”
[Al Qur’aan 6:116] So this is a weak argument that majority of people do it and believe in it so it is true.
AHLE SUNNAT WA JAMAA’AT REPLY
THE OBOVE VERSE IN THE QURAAN IS ABOUT UNBELIVERS ALLAAH KAREEM IS NOT SAYING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE WORSHIPPING HIM ON THE SHABAAN DOING TASBEEH AND QURAAN.
Conclusion:
These reports indicate that fasting in the month of Sha`baan, though not obligatory, is so meritious that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) did not like to miss it. But it should be understood that the fasts of Sha`baan are for those persons only who are capable of keeping them without causing deficiency in the obligatory fasts of Ramadaan.
It is the habit of the Muslims to celebrate some auspicious events during the month of Sha'baan by praying, reciting Quraan, praising Allaah, and making a great deal of supplication to Allaah Kareem during that night.
Sha’baan is like an introduction to Ramadaan and it has some things in common with Ramadaan, such as fasting, reciting Holy Quraan and giving in charity. It has been narrated that upon the arrival of Rajab the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to pray "O' Allaah! Bless us abundantly in Rajab and Sha'baan and deliver us safely unto Ramadaan."
Hazrat Imaam Zayn ud-deen Ibn Nujaim al-Misri [Rahmatul Laah Alaieh] said:
والأصل فيه أن الإنسان له أن يجعل ثواب عمله لغيره صلاة أو صوماً أو صدقة أو قراءة قرآن أو ذكراً أو طوافاً أو حجاً أو عمرة أو غير ذلك عند أصحابنا للكتاب والسنة
Translation: According to us the Sawwaab of deeds performed by one person reaches the other, this includes Praying, Fasting, Charity, “RECITATION OF QURAAN”, Zikr, Tawwaaf, Hajj, Umra or any other (good) deeds. This is proven from Quraan and Sunnah
[Al-Bahr ar-Ra’iq Sharaah Kanz al Daq’aiq (3/62)]
A HUMBLE APPEAL TO SEEK PARDON AND ASK ALLAH'S FORGIVENESS:
Dear Muslim brothers, the Bountiful Allaah Kareem in His Infinite Mercy has provided us with such an auspicious night so that we may take advantage of it and repent for our sins, and thus obtain His Grace and Favor. It is for us to take full advantage of it. During this night, offer special prayers and repent sincerely for our past sins and ask for His Forgiveness.
May Allaah Ta'aalaa guide them and show them the right path so that they be in touch with their glorious past, May Almighty Allaah guide us on the path of the Ambiyaa and the Auliyaa Allaah.
Aameen.
CONCLUSION:
To conclude the virtue of this blessed night are established by Ahadees and a group of the salaf it is recommended to stay up on it, and the opinion that it is Bida'h (innovation) is a "Reprehensible" (munkar) opinion.
This night should be spent in worshipping Almighty Allaah from the depth of heart. It is the time to focus one’s attention to Him alone. It is the time to enjoy the direct contact with Allaah Kareem, Most Compassionate, Ever-Merciful. Most of all, it is the time for reforming one’s life to come
