Virtues of Sha’ban & 15th Night of Shaban -Shab e Baarat from Quran,Sahih hadiths in islam


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise be to God, Lord of the Universe: the Compassionate, the Merciful. Sovereign of the Day of Judgement! 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 favoured: not of those who have incurred Your wrath, nor of those who have gone astray. Endless Blessings and Peace upon Allahs Most Beloved Messenger & Prophet Hadrat Muhammad Mustafa (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

As Saalam o Alaykum Warehmatullahi Wabarakatuh

It is admitted fact that every moment, second, minute, hour, day or night that is spent in the submission of Allah 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 Allah, the compassionate, lays immense stress upon them to unveil their importance to his rationale creatures.

Among those months, those hold much importance is Moharram, Rajab, Sha’ban and the holy month of Ramadhan but Sha’ban holds the top position among these holy months as the Holy Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) holds the top position among all the Prophets like Hazrat Ibrahim, Hazrat Musa and Hazrat Isa (aalhimissalam)

The Holy Month of Sha’ban is one of the blessed months that holds much too for us from the mercy, compassion and kindness of Allah Almighty. This is the month that is the best of all months in the estimation of Allah. Its days are the best among the days; its nights are the best among the nights. Its hours are the best among the hours. It is the month that gave time its spirituality, and thus made its days the best days and its hours the best hours.It is preparatory month that welcomes the holy month of Ramadhan.


If we study the life of our beloved 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 Allah almighty and seek salvation and earn the infinite mercy of Allah Subhana hu watala.

*FASTING AND EXTRA WORSHIP IN SHA`BAN*

Once the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Sha’ ban is my month

As Aaqa (صلى الله عليه وسلم) called it my month, so its significance and importance touches to the sky because every thing 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 momineen.

Imam Ali bin Hussein Al-Zaynul Aabideen (ra) told his companions: “The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to observe fast during the whole month of Sha’ban. Therefore whoso, in love of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), wishes to seek nearness to Allah and receive bounties, favors and rewards in this world and in the Hereafter, must connect Sha’ban with Ramadan (in the matter of fasting and special prayers).

*Hadith 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: Aisha (raa) reported that the Messenger of Allah (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 Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) completing the fast of a month, but that of Ramadan, and I did not see him fasting more in any other month than that of Sha’ban. [Sahih Muslim Book 006, Hadith Number 2580]


*Hadith Number 2*

‏عن ‏ ‏عائشة أم المؤمنين ‏ ‏رضي الله عنها ‏ كان رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏يتحفظ ‏ ‏من شعبان ما لا ‏ ‏يتحفظ ‏ ‏من غيره ثم يصوم لرؤية رمضان فإن ‏ ‏غم عليه ‏ ‏عد ثلاثين يوما ثم صام

Translation: Narated By Aisha (raa) : The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to count the days in Sha’ban in a manner he did not count any other month; then he fasted when he sighted the new moon of Ramadan; but if the weather was cloudy he counted thirty days and then fasted. [Abu Dawud Book 007, Hadith Number 2318]

*Hadith Number 3*

‏عن عائشة قالت: لم يكن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في شهر أكثر صياماً منه في شعبان لأنه ينسخ فيه أرواح الأحياء في الأموات، حتى أن الرجل يتزوج وقد رفع اسمه فيمن يموت، وإن الرجل ليحج وقد رفع اسمه فيمن يموت

Translation: Narrated by Aishah (raa) says, “Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to fast the whole of Sha’ban. I said to him, ‘Messenger of Allah, is Sha’ban your most favorite month for fasting?’ He said, ‘In this month Allah prescribes the list of the persons dying this year. Therefore, I like that my death comes when I am in a state of fasting.” [Ibn Asakir, Tafsir ad-Dar al-Manthur Under the Verse 44:3]

*Hadith Number 4*

‏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: Imran bin Husain (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) having said to him or to someone else: Did you fast in the middle of Sha’ban? He said: No. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: If you did not observe fast, then you should observe fast for two days. [Muslim Book 006, Number 2607]


* 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 get in mind 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 Ramadhan.

It is the habit of the Muslims to celebrate some auspicious events during the month of Sha’ban by praying, reciting Quran, praising Allah, and making a great deal of supplication to Allah during that night. Sha’ban is like an introduction to Ramadan and it has some things in common with Ramadan, such as fasting, reciting Holy Quran 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’ Allah! Bless us abundantly in Rajab and Sha’ban and deliver us safely unto Ramadan.”

*The Night of Mid-Sha`ban (Laylat al-barrah)*

Qur’an State: (إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ إِنَّا كُنَّا مُنذِرِينَ) – Lo! We revealed it on a blessed night — Lo! We are ever warning – (فِيهَا يُفْرَقُ كُلُّ أَمْرٍ حَكِيمٍ) – Whereupon every wise command is made clear – (أَمْرًا مِّنْ عِندِنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا مُرْسِلِينَ) – As a command from Our presence — Lo! We are ever sending – (رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ) – A mercy from thy Lord. Lo! He is the Hearer, the Knower. (44:3-6)

Although the majority of the commentators consider the “blessed night” in the above verses to refer to the Night of Decree which is considered to be in the month of Ramadan, yet the commentaries also mention that this “blessed night” may be that of mid-Sha`ban This view is based on the profusion of hadiths on the great merits of the latter. Consequently the Shari`a has commended observance of that night. Concerning supererogatory worship on the night of mid-Sha`ban.


Imam Suyuti says: As for the night of mid-Sha`ban, it has great merit and it is desirable (mustahabb) to spend part of it in supererogatory worship. [Haqiqat al-sunna wa al-bid`a aw al-amr bi al-ittiba` wa al-nahi `an al-ibtida Page No. 58]

Translation: Narrated by Aisha (raa) I missed Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) during the night and found him in al-Baqi’. He said: Were you afraid that Allah and His Messenger would deal unjustly with you? I said: Allah’s Messenger, I thought that you had gone to some of your other wives. He (the Prophet) said: Verily Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, comes down to the heaven of the world in “the middle night of Sha’ban” and forgives sins even more abundant than the hair of the goats of Kalb. [Sunan Tirmidhi Volume 001, Hadith Number 670, Ibn Maja Volume 002, Hadith Number1379]

[Ibn Hibban, Sahih, ed. Shu`ayb Arna’ut Volume 012: Hadith Number 5665]


*Hadith Number 6*

عن عائشة قالت: قام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من الليل يصلي، فأطال السجود حتى ظننت أنه قد قبض، فلما رأيت ذلك، قمت حتى حركت إبهامه، فتحرك، فرجعت، فلما رفع رأسه من السجود وفرغ من صلاته، فقال: ” يا عائشة، أو يا حميراء ظننت أن النبي قد خاس بك ” قلت: لا والله يا نبي الله ولكني ظننت أنك قبضت لطول سجودك فقال: ” أتدرين أي ليلة هذه؟ ” قلت: الله ورسوله أعلم، قال: ” هذه ليلة النصف من شعبان، فيغفر للمستغفرين ويرحم المسترحمين ويؤخر أهل الحقد كما هم

Translation: From A’isha: She said: The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) stood up in prayer during part of the night and made his prostration so lengthy that I thought his soul had been taken back. When I saw this I got up and went to move his big toe, whereupon he moved, so I drew back. When he raised his head from prostration and finished praying, he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “O A’isha, O fair little one (humayra’)! Did you think that the Prophet had broken his agreement with you?” She replied: “No, by Allah, O Messenger of Allah, but I thought that your soul had been taken back because your stayed in prostration for so long.” He said: “Do you know what night this is?” She said: “Allah and His Prophet know best.” He said: “This is the night of mid-Sha`ban! Verily Allah the Glorious and Majestic look at His servants on “the night of mid-Sha`ban, and He forgives those who ask forgiveness, and He bestows mercy on those who ask mercy, and He gives a delay to the people of envy and spite in their state.”

Azhari said:

يقال للرجل إذا غدر بصاحبه فلم يؤته حقه قد خاس به

Concerning his words: “broken his agreement with you”: this is said to a person who betrays his companion and therefore has not given him his due right.

Translation: Imran bin Husain (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) having said to him or to someone else: Did you fast in the “Middle of Sha’ban?” He said: No. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: If you did not observe fast, then you should observe fast for two days. [Muslim Book 006, Number 2607]

*Scholarly Opinion’s*

The virtue of the night of mid shaban has been established from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and has come from multiple channels of transmission from Abdullah bin Amr, Muadh, Abu Hurairah, Abu Thulabah, Awf bin Malik, Abu Bakr, Abu Musa, Aishah May Allah be pleased with all of them, each of the narrations strengthening each other.

Imam Shafi’i write:

و بلغنا أنه كان يقال إن الرعاء يستجاب في خمس في ليال في ليلة جمعة و ليلة الأضحى و ليلة الفطر و اول ليلة من رجب و ليلة النصف من شعبان

Translation: Of the narrations that have reached us, verily, dua is accepted on five nights: the night of Juma’, the night of E’id Al-Adha, the night of E’id Al-Fitr, the first night of Rajab, and the 15th night of Shabaan”. [al-Umm, Volume 001, Page No. 231]

Imam Shurunbulali Hanafi writes:

وندب احياء ليالي العشر الاخبر من رمضان واحياء ليلتي العيدين وليالي عشر زي الحجة وليلة النصف من شعبان

Translation: It is desirable to revive the last ten nights of Ramadan, two nights of Eidain (Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha), ten nights of Zil Hijjah, and the 15th night of Sha`ban. [Noorul Eidhah Page No. 63]


Shaikh Abu-Ishaq Ibrahim Al-Hanbali writes:

ويستحب احيا مابين العشانين الخبر قال جماعة و ليلة عاشورا وليلة اول رجب وليلة نصف شعبان

Translation: It is desirable to revive the time (with salat and ibadah) between the two E’sha’s (Maghrib and E’sha) because of the ahaadith. Many scholars say: Similarly with the night of Ashura, the first night of Rajab, and the 15th night of Sha`ban. [Al-Mubdi Volume 002, Page No. 27]

Sheikh Mansoor Bahoti Hanbali writes:

واما ليلة النصف من شعبان ففيها فضل وكان في السلف من يصلي فيها الاجتماح فيها لا حيانهافي المساجد بدعة اه وفئ استحباب قيامها اي ليلة النصف من شعبان مافئ احياء ليلة العيد

Translation: As for the 15th night of Sha`ban, it is a night of virtue. Some of the salaf prayed the whole night, although establishing congregational prayers (on this night) is good innovation. And the reward of ibadah on “the 15th night of Sha`ban” is the same as the reward of ibadah on the night of E’id. [Kash-shaful Qina, Volume 001: Page No. 444]

Mubarakpuri (Salafi scholer) writes:

‏اعلم أنه قد ورد في فضيلة ليلة النصف من شعبان عدة أحاديث مجموعها يدل على أن لها أصلا

Translation: You should know that a sufficient number of hadith has been narrated confirming “the virtues of the 15th night of Sha`ban“. All these ahaadith prove that it has a basis.

After relating many Ahadith about the importance of this night he says:

فهذه الأحاديث بمجموعها حجة على من زعم أنه لم يثبت في فضيلة ليلة النصف من شعبان شيء والله تعالى أعلم

Translation: The sum of all these ahadith is strong evidence against the one “who thinks there is no proof” of the virtue of the 15th night of Sha`ban” and Allah knows best. [Tuhfatul Ahwadhi Volume 003: Page. 365-367]


Ibn-Taimiyyah was asked about of the 15th night of Sha’ban. 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 Shabaan, there are many narrations and Athar (quotes from the Sahabah) 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]

* CONCLUSION:

To conclude the virtue of this blessed night are established by ahadith 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.

* A HUMBLE APPEAL TO SEEK PARDON AND ASK ALLAH’S FORGIVENESS:

Dear Muslim brothers, the Bountiful Allah 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 Favour. 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 Allah Ta’ala guide them and show them the right path so that they be in touch with their glorious past, May Almighty Allah guide us on the path of the Ambiya and the Awliya. Aameen.

Please remember me in your prayers.

Objection by wahabi [salafi,]group that all hadiths are Daeef

usually the wahabi/salafi/ahle hadith sect is seen claiming that all hadiths mentioned above are daeef. First of all the hadith of ibn Habban is termed “SAHIH” by classical scholars so are many other hadiths.Even now if someone following such groups don’t believe in classical scholars than here is a proof from Salafi [wahabi ] so called Mujadad of last century and a controversial scholar Nasir ud Din Albani who declaired Hadiths of 15th Shabaan as Authentic [Sahih]

some hadith are daeef [weak] but usllly we see Bin Baaz and group using them to wrongly prove Sahih hadiths as daeef too lolz which is funny,

Authenticity of Hadith # 1 on Ibn Habban

The usual trick of making people fool is by showing chains of only Daeef hadith and trying to claim that all hadiths are daeef According to Usool of hadith if a hadith comes from several chains [as in this case] and even if one hadith is “SAHIH” than other daeef hadith also become “DAeef SAhih” and are accepted as point is proved from a sahih chain, , so go and get some knowledge first yourself
,
There are atleast 3-4 hadiths quoted above which are SAhih [and few are daeef (weak) ] but even they are accepted
,
For example IBn Habban hadith is Sahih
,

Ibn Hibban narrated from Mu`adh ibn Jabal in his Sahih the following narration which the hadith scholar and editor of the Sahih Shu`ayb Arna’ut confirmed as sound:
The Prophet said :
Allah looks at His creation in the night of mid-Sha`ban and He forgives all His creation except for a mushrik (idolater) or a mushahin (one bent on hatred).
,

( Reference: Al-Tabarani: Al-Mu’jam Al-Kabir 20/108-9, Ibn Hibban:
Sahih Ibn Hibban 7/470, Al-Bayhaqi: Shu’bal Iman 2/288, Abulhasan
Al-Qazwini: Al-Amali 4/2, Ibn ‘Asakir: Al-Tarikh 15/302 & Ibn Abi ‘Asim:Al-Sunna1/224)

,
Note on authenticity
:

1)Ibn Hibban
(May Allaah have mercy on him) considered this Hadith to be Sahih.
,
(Ibn Rajab: Lataif Al-Ma’arif 1/224)

Further Classification of hadith

Imam Ibn Hajr al Haythami (Rahimuhullah) narrates in his magnificent Majma az Zawaid


وعن معاذ بن جبل عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏

‏”‏يطلع الله إلى جميع خلقه ليلة النصف من شعبان، فيغفر لجميع خلقه، إلا لمشرك، أو مشاحن‏”‏‏.‏

رواه الطبراني في الكبير والأوسط ورجالهما ثقات‏.‏

Translation: Narrated by Muadh bin Jabal (RA) from Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) who said: Allah turns towards his creation in the Night of “MID-SHABAN” and He forgives all of them except for a Mushrik and one who hates other people

Imam Ibn Hajr Haythami (rah) says after this hadith: It is narrated by Tabarani in his Al-Kabir and Al-Awsat and “ALL ITS NARRATORS ARE RELIABLE” [Majma az Zawaid, Volume No. 8, Page No. 65, Hadith # 12860]
.
Source:Brother Aamir Ibrahim

Famous Salafi scholar Nasir ud din Albani said about chain [/size]
,
in : Silsilah Al-Ahadith Al-Sahihah 3/135 #1144 )

,
Allah turns towards his creation in the Night of “MID-SHABAN” and He forgives all of them except for a Mushrik and one who hates other people (Albani calls it); “A SAHIH HADITH” narrated by group of Sahaba with different routes (Turuq) such as from Muadh bin Jabal (ra), Abu Thalbah (ra) Abdullah bin Umar (ra), Abu Musa al Ashari (ra), Abu Hurraira (ra), Abu Bakr as Saddiq (ra), Awf bin Malik (ra) and Aisha (ra).The Hadith of Muadh bin Jabal (ra) comes through Makhul from Malik bin Yakhamir and It is “MARFU” narrated by Ibn Abi Asim in his As-Sunnah Hadith #512 [Nasir ud din Albani in Silsilat ul-Ahadith-as Sahiha, Volume No. 3, Page No. 135 #1144]
,

Albani further declares
2 more ahadith as “HASSAN” and 1 to be “Mursil Jayyid”

,

Authenticity of Hadith other two sahih hadiths on 15th of Shabaan [shab e baraat]


authenticity of 2nd & 3rd hadith


There is another identical Hadith related from the Companion Abdullah b.’Amr (May Allaah be pleased with him) which says that the Prophet(Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) said: “Allah looks at His creation during the night of the 15th of Sha’ban and He forgives His servants except two- one intent on hatred (mushanin) and a murderer (qatilu nafs).
,
( Ref : Musnad Ahmad 2/176 #6642.
,
Al-Bazzar also related this Hadith and he classified it as ‘hasan
,
Note :
In his edition of Musnad Ahmed, Shaykh Ahmed Shakir has classified this Hadith as’Sahih

and Nasiruddin Al-Albany classified it is ‘Hasan’

( Al-Albani: Silsilah Al-Ahadith Al-Sahihah 3/136)

chain of Another Hasan hadith narrated by Abu Bakr Siddiq Rd

It has beenclassified as sound by Haafiz al-Munzhiri (RA) in his al-Targheeb (vol.3 pg.459).

This narration is of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (Radhiallaahu Anhu) and is recorded by Imaam Bazzaar (RA) in his Musnad.

Hafiz ibn Hajar (RA) has also classified one of its chains as Hasan (sound).
(al-Amaal mutlaqah pgs.119-120)
,
Sahabas who transmitted hadith of Shabaan

,
Abu Hurayra (Musnad al-Bazzaar), Abu Tha’labah (Shu’ubul Imaan), Awf ibn Maalik (Musnad al-Bazzaar), Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-Aas (Musnad Ahmad Hadith6642), Abu Moosa al-Ash’ari (ibn Majah Hadith1390; Shu’ubul Imaan Hadith3833) and others. The collective strength of these narrations cannot be refuted.

So few hadiths are Daeef [no doubt] but many are sahih as well and Sahih hadiths strenght those Daeef ones and they become daeef Sahih according to science of hadiths
