Shab e Barat

What is Shab e Barat?

It is a night in middle of the Sha’ban (the islamic month), in which crucial decisions are made about death of every mankind by Allah (the Lord).

List of Dead People

Hazrat Aisha (RA) narrated that ‘‘The Beloved and Blessed Prophet would keep fasts throughout Sha’ban.’ She (RA) once asked, ‘Ya Rasulallah, Do you like fasting in Sha’ban the most?’ He (PBUH) replied, ‘Allah     records the name of every person who will die this year and I like to be in the state of fasting at the time of my demise.’

(Musnad Abi Ya’la, pp. 277, vol. 4, Hadis 4890

Month of Holy Prophet (PBUH)

The Prophet (PBUH)  has said: ‘Sha’ban is the month of mine and Ramadan is the month of Allah  

(Al-Jami’-us-Saghir, pp. 301, Hadis 4889 – Dar-ul-Kutub ‘Ilmiyyah, Beirut)

  3. Disobedient of Parent
  4. The one who prefer not to meat with family or cut off family ties

Fast on the 15th of Sha’ban

Hazrat Ali (RA) has narrated that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘When the 15th Night of Sha’ban comes, do Qiyam (for worship) in the night and observe fast in the day. No doubt Allah reveals special Divine Manifestation on sky above the earth from the time of sunset and announces, ‘Is there anyone seeking forgiveness so that I may forgive him? Is there anyone seeking sustenance so that I may grant him sustenance? Is there anyone afflicted so that I may relieve his affliction? Is there so and so…’ He (PBUH) keeps announcing it until the time of the Fajr.’

(Sunan Ibn Majah, pp. 160, vol. 2, Hadis 1388 – Dar-ul-Ma’rifah, Beirut)
