The Importance Of Shab E Barat

Postby shawn52 » Jul 04, 2012 Views: 7374

There is nothing in Qur’an about the night of 15th Shaban. There is a narration in Tirmidhi, which is considered as Za’eef (weak) according to Imam Tirmidhi. All the narrations regarding glorification of the night are weak. The authentic Hadiths inform us that Prophet Muhammad r with the exception of Ramadan, never kept so many fasts as in Sha’ban. But we also find that the Prophet (Pbuh) forbade others to keep any fast after the mid Sha’ban. Other than this, no reference of the 15th night is authentic.

Shias believe that 15th Sha’ban is the birth date of their last and 12th Imam who is invisible and will come back as Imam Medhi. This may be the reason behind Halwas, crackers and other celebration-like things prevalent among those who lack knowledge.

About Milads etc., every moment of the day or night when Prophet Muhammad r is remembered, is pious but again, there is nothing in Qur’an and Sunnah which links the Prophet to the said night in particular.

The weak narrations, stating that fate is written in this night are to be ignored because they contradict the Qur’an. The Qur’an in clear words ascribe this pre-eminence of Shab-e-Qad’r or Lailat-al-Qad’r. It says; “Verily we have sent it (The Qur’an) down in the night of Al-Qad’r (The Decree)... The night of Decree is better than a thousand months. Therein descend the angels and Ruh (the spirit) by Allah’s permission with all decrees.â€￾ (97:1-4)
