Book Name:Shaban ul Muazzam main nafil ibadaat
§ order to awaken us to the fact that this month is between Rajab and Ramadan in which people are heedless, though in it the deeds of people are presented to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ.
§ The people who worship during the sacred night of the 15th Sha’ban are given glad tidings: Congratulations to the one who worships during this night, congratulations to the one who performs Sajdah during this night, congratulations to the one who performs Ruku’ during this night, congratulations to the one who makes Du’a to his Rab عَزَّوَجَلَّ during this night, congratulations to the one who gets occupied with supplications to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ during this night; sometimes calls are being made like this: Is there anyone who repents so that his repentance is accepted? Is there anyone who seeks forgiveness so that he is forgiven? Is there anyone who makes Du’a so that his Du’a is accepted?
§ The night of the 15th Sha’ban, which is the most important night of this sacred month, is also called Shab-e-Bara`at i.e. the night of deliverance because during this night Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ frees people from Hell equal to the number of the hair growing on the goats of the tribe Bani Qalb.
§ Persuading us to worship especially during the night of the 15th Sha’ban, our Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: Spend this night in worship and fast during the day. Therefore, the blessed companions رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی عَـنْـهُم and the pious saints رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی not only performed Nafl worship abundantly themselves, but also persuaded Muslims to do so, therefore, instead of destroying the sanctity of this sacred night by making lots of noise and committing many other types of sins, harming ourselves and other Muslims’ life and possessions by setting off fireworks and displeasing Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم we should sincerely repent of all sins so that we can please Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. We should perform a lot of Nafl worship by doing Zikr and reciting Salat-‘Alan-Nabi, reciting the Holy Quran and by performing many other good deeds.
صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
