Book Name:Shaban ul Muazzam main nafil ibadaat

Alas! There are some unfortunate people who have been declared to remain deprived of forgiveness even on Shab-e-Bara`at i.e. the night of deliverance. Sayyiduna Imam Bayhaqi Shaafi’i عَـلَيْهِ رَحْـمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ الۡـقَـوِی has narrated in ‘Fadaail-ul-Awqat’: The Prophet of Rahmah صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, ‘Six types of people will not be forgiven even on this night:


1.         An alcoholic.

Therefore, if Muslims are committing any of the above-mentioned sins, they should repent of these sins (and all others) from the bottom of their hearts, before the arrival of Shab-e-Bara`at, in fact, they should sincerely repent right now without any delay.

It will be excellent if we associate ourselves with the Madani environment of Dawat-e-Islami to remain steadfast on repentance, to perform good deeds for the betterment of this world and the Hereafter, to avoid committing sins and to develop more enthusiasm to perform Nafl worships. We should also take part, with dedication, in the 12 Madani activities of the Zayli Halqah as well.

Madani Qafilah, one of the 12 Madani activities

One of the (monthly) 12 Madani activities of the Zayli Halqah is also ‘Madani Qafilah’. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, by virtue of the blessings of Madani Qafilahs travelling under the supervision of Dawat-e-Islami, Madani transformations have taken place in the lives of countless people. Furthermore, by virtue of these Madani
