Shab-e-Barat :: Authentic or not ??

Shab-e-Barat’ is observed with due solemnity and religious fervor in different parts of the world. Specially in this subcontinent, the night is observed as an age old celebration. Although the references as to observance of ‘Shab-e-Barat’ in the Holy Hadith are regarded as weak injunctions, but the night draws a large number of devotees to salat, fasting, ziarat, poor feeding, sweet distribution and more!

Devoted Muslims of only Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan celebrate the ‘Shab-e-Barat’ on the 15th day of Shaban (the eighth month of the Islamic lunar calendar). Although this night is not celebrated in any other Muslim land. ‘Shab-e-Barat’, also known as ‘Laylatul Barat’ or ‘Laylatul Nusfmin Shaban’, is a traditional Islamic day of festival and worship in the South Asia. According to the ascetic Muslims, this is the day of divine benediction. Offering prayers and fasting in this particular day is said to have greater acceptance from God.

But if one traces back the root of this prestigious night, one might come up with the fact that “No” verse of the Holy Quran has any indication pointing to the existence of any such an occasion called ‘Shab-e-Barat’. The result is same if one goes through the authentic ‘Ahadeeth’ (plural of Hadeeth), which is the sayings or doings of our great Prophet Muhammad. Nothing firm and reliable has been established on the authority of the Prophet that he held nigh vigil prayer and fasted during the day of the 15th of ‘Shaban’. So, the night of the 15th of ‘Shaban’ is like any other night, and if someone regularly observes acts of worship during other nights, then he may hold night vigil prayer on this night without assuming anything special.

It should be noted that an Islamic celebration must have its evidences in the two penultimate sources of Islam, the Quran and the Hadeeth. According to the Islamic creed, none has the right to innovate a way of worship. Only the God and his messenger, our great Prophet, hold the right to set such an occasion.

In Islam, if there is no authentic proof in an act then the act is regarded as an innovation and all innovations are misguidance. So, what we can finally tell is that, though this celebration will be observed with utmost respect by the contemporary Muslim society here in the subcontinent, but one should really think seriously about what it is all about.

Innovating a way of worship like shab-e-barat has a arabic term. But I can't remember right now :( Can you help? Ofcourse khaled could but where could I find him so late (for him) at night!

Anyway Have you prayed?? I don't think so :P
But shab-e-barat is kinda social celebration to me. People makinng foods, distributing among neighbours and poors. Celebrate!

Shaon said...

'Shab-e-Barat' is also known as 'Laylatul Barat' or 'Laylatul Nusfmin Shaban'. >> I am not sure which arabic term you r looking for!

And about celebration and prayer: there is no harm in social celebration... there is no harm if you pray whole night for God. Rather it's very much encouragable! but you can't expect anything special...and you cant say that you are doing those for any special islamic reason... And I think, if you do...then your 'act will be regarded as an innovation and all innovations are misguidance.'

Interesting. I personally dont do anything extra but don't chide those who do - after all there was no Taraweeh prayers in jamaat during the prophet's time as well.

Mehrin said...

Excess of anything is bad...but excess of ibadaat shouldn't be termed as 'misguided' just because 'the roots' is obscure or to be more precise, is unknown to the ones who argue about it. At the end of it all...cmon no harm done...people praying that night wasn't killing, cheating or decieving anyone. Something harmless shouldn't be clawed at this much. After all you are hurting a lot of people's inner most feeling. Why don't you write about the political and social drama of the country instead? Honestly, you'll find more misguided principles lying low there. Keep up the good writing:)

There is a post regarding Celebrating the 15th Night of Sha`ban

There are some hadiths that speak about the Middle of Sha`ban and its night. However, the scholars of hadith say that most of the hadiths concerning this night are not authentic. They are weak (da`if) according to the criteria of the narrators and scholars of Hadith. Imam Al-Mundhiri (died in 656 A.H.) in his famous book At-Targhib wat-Tarhib (vol. 2, pp. 116-120) reported fourteen hadiths on the subject of this night. The following points can be summarized from those hadiths:

1. The month of Sha`ban is a great month.

2. In this month Allah takes the account of His creation.

3. Because this month occurs between two other important months, viz. Rajab and Ramadan, many people do not pay enough attention to it.

4. The Prophet (peace be upon him) loved to fast during this month. He used to fast most of the month of Sha`ban.

5. After sunset on the night of Middle of Sha`ban, Allah in His great mercy and kindness turns towards His creation and asks, "Is there anyone who would seek My forgiveness and I forgive him (or her)? Is there anyone who is in need to ask Me and I provide for his (or her) needs. Is there anyone who is in pain and seeks My help and I help him (or her)? Is there…? Is there…?” until the time of Dawn."

6. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is said to have recommended prayers during this night and fasting during the following day.

7. It reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to visit the Muslim cemetery on this evening and he used to pray for the deceased Muslims.

We must try to follow the Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah of the blessed Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). It is our duty as Muslims to take advantage of all good occasions to revive our faith, to purify our souls, and to increase our love and devotion to Allah (glory be to Him), but we must follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). We must not do anything in our celebrations that is against his teachings.

Mehrinz said...

ok...apart from all of that, excessive ibadaat to our creator cannot be bad, so why all the debates? What was all the justification about? I am still wondering why people are so concerned about the authencity...good...bad whatever.. of our religion when hundreds of wrongs...real bad wrongs stuffs are crowding around us. Now putting them right is hard but not impossible.Gandhiji said "Be the change if you want the world to change". So what do you guys say? can we change some lives?

Mehrinz said...

oh! By the way...plz update!!

Tanvir said...

According to a Hadith, Shab-e-Barat is ovserved in some countries.But the Hadith which indicates this night is called "JAEEF" Hadith. A "JAEEF" Hadith is one which is not false but can be reliable in someway.Still there is no guarantee dat it is 100% reliable.Muslim scholars says(agreed unanimously) about this type of JAEEF Hadith that the work/ritual that the Hadith says about should be observed/performed.Bcoz there is no loss praying to Allah even if the Hadith is false.

The Arabic term you are looking for is 'bidaah', which means innovation.

The Shab-e-Barat's significance for South Asian Muslims is based on a shared cultural norm with all other South Asians. While I will not delve into the authenticity of the night in terms of religious texts, I do believe that the manner in ways that it is practised in South Asia (ie. through means of sweets, community togetherness, fireworks and candles/lights as we do it in Bangladesh) is rooted to similar traditions that occur during Diwali. I for one especially like this celebration because it is unique due to a sense of solidarity and unity amongst all South Asians, despite our separate religions.

Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.

Saying something about Allah (swt) and His ways without knowledge is a great sin. And innovation in religion leads to "Jahilliya" / ignorance,,,,and now see how many people are ignorant about our religion.

I am not saying praying or anything is wrong - that would be blasphemy all the way if i said that. My point is - you ARE SUPPOSE TO PRAY, GIVE ZAKAT AND BE GOOD TO OTHERS, everyday.....why do you have to pick up a day thats been innovated.

Islamic Scholars say that if you pick up one night to pray then its good for you. But if you make it a habit to pray at the same date every year, and people start copying it from you, this will start a new tradition, and will lead people to say about Allah things they dont even know......and now look what has happened to our society.

honestly - where do you even get the idea of making "Halwa" on this day. this is clear innovation.

you people want blessing from Allah. - then stop these innovations and start praying regularly. give to the poor regularly and for goodness sake research the religion yourself and find out what is real and what is not.....that is also an act of worship/ibada....because our prophet said....to seek knowledge is ibadat.

I do not wish to offend anyone, but as a muslim i get offended when people make up things in the name of our beautiful and practical religion....as you all should be.

anyways i leave you all in peace - Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.

Great article!!! Its good to see someone else understand that this so called tradition is nothing more than a farce created by priests and people who deviate from the true Islamic ways!!!

Good article zajakalaah! well thats the problem with ppl... they dont understands about biddat and they keep on following the innovations that has been put on them by their elders or ancestors ...

Hey Bloggers It is all absurd...Why do all of us pretend about being religious when we even dont have a knowledge of 1 % about the religion. Praying 5 times daily is the feast which GOD gives us for praying him: It is quite personal. No body knows if his/hers Prayers are accepted or not it is only our belief taht they will be accepted: DO any one of us have guarantee for that...... If You give guarantee then does anybody pray to god like "IBlees" i think no one. So his Ibadat was waste due to his deds. So Be down to earth pray cAlmly donot pretend do not criticize, rest May Allah give peace to all of Us and show us the Right way...Aamen

ayesha said...

salam
i feel that prayer is a private matter but if it assumes the shape f wat i'll call mass praying night then it should be searched coz many people are affected
halwa n such things r definitely wrong but wat i got from my personal research is dat no hadith clearly signifies this nights prayer although we get many about fast n those hadith which do point to night prayers do not clearly state 15 shabaan night prayers they can mean tahajjud or yom e ashura or simply friday night prayers !!
but daif or weak hadith do exist n people can follow they r not wrong rather a narrator or ravi is missing in the chain so clasified as weak

Adnan said...

If by celebration you means PARTYING and other FANCY stuff then yes it's Bidat.

If you seek excuse NOT to offer prayers on 15th Shabaan just because you think it's not authentic then you are going to do a mistake because it's mentioned in Hadith that Prophet(Saw) used to fast that day and other days of Shabaan and used to offer prayers.

So don't miss chance to earn lots of sawab by obeying silly excuses.

Sura Dukhan mentions about Laila Mubaraka, which, according to the opinion of some among the persons who developed expertise in interpreting the Quran and the Hadith, is Shab-e-barat. [Muhammad Asadullah Al-Ghalib]

Regards.

Anonymous said...

Lailatul mubarakah (In which Quran was revealed) mentioned in Surah Dukhan can never be the one in the month of shaban. Because Allah says in Baqara 2:185 that Quran was revealed in ramadan. So how come one expect it to find in shaban.

Anonymous said...

Some believe that in surah Dukhan there is a reference to this night as Allah says, (We sent it (the Qur’an) down during a blessed night. We are truly Warners. In that night is made distinct every affair of wisdom.) But the night referred to here cannot be a Sha`ban night because it is said here clearly that the Qur’an was revealed in this night. We know from the Surat Al-Qadr (97) that the Qur’an was revealed in the Night of Qadr and we also know from the Qur’an (Al-Baqarah 2:185) that the Qur’an was revealed in the month of Ramadan. So it is obvious that the night of the revelation of the Qur’an was in Ramadan, not Sha`ban, and that it was laylat ul-qadr (The Night of Power) not shab-e-barat. (Dr. Muzzamil Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America)

There are no particular days within the month of Sha`bân that are particularly recommended for fasting. There is no special virtue for fasting on the 15th day of Sha`bân.

There is a weak hadîth that reads: “When the middle night of Sha`bân arrives, observe prayer throughout that night and fast the following day, for indeed Allah descends to the lower heavens on that night at sunset and declares: ‘Is there anyone seeking forgiveness whom I can forgive? Is anyone seeking My providence whom I can provide for? Is there anyone facing difficulties whose burdens I can ease?...’ and He keeps asking more and more until the break of dawn.” [Sunan Ibn Mâjah (1388)]

The author of al-Manâr has determined this hadîth to me not only weak, but fabricated. He says:
The truth is that this hadîth is a forgery. Its chain of transmissions contains the narrator Abû Bakr b. `Abd Allah b. Muhammad, who is better known as Ibn Abî Sabrah.

Ahmad b. Hanbal and Yahyâ b. Ma`în have both exposed him as a fabricator of hadîth.
[Also refer to: Majmû` al-Fatâwâ (5/266)]

Due to the fact that the practice of singling out the 15th of Sha`bân for fasting is not established by any sound hadîth, it is an unfounded practice. All scholars agree that weak and fabricated hadîth are not valid to establish specific acts of worship.

The only exception to this would be cases where a weak hadîth has support from numerous supporting narrations to the point where it is strengthened to the grade of being a good hadîth. In that case, it can be used for establishing an act of worship as long as its meaning is not at variance with what is stronger.

Consequently, it is an innovation in worship to single out this particular day for fasting, since any act of worship that is not established by the Sunnah is an innovation in religion. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Every innovation is a means of going astray.” [Sahîh Muslim (867)]

Weight loss has become a well furnished business for many scrupulous people. Nowadays people have become very much beauty and skin conscious and as a result they are going for weight loss in huge numbers. Weight loss has become the main ingredient of beauty, smartness, and health. Thus looking into this growing demand for weight loss, there are many who take advantage and make it a business. There are fake organizations either provide fake medicines or fake trainers, and charge exorbitant amounts from the clients. So while going for weight loss it is very important to check the authenticity of the organization or the drugs.

Walaykum as Saalam

The ahadith in the virtue of the night of mid shaban, and the sunnah of staying up (in it) is established from other chains of transmission which have been collated by our Sheikh, Allamah, the Muhaddith ..My Master, Moulana Muhammad Ali Qadri.

As for the hadith of Abdullah bin Amr, from Abdullah bin Lahiah – Huyy bin Abdullah – Abi Abd al-Rahman al-Jubuli- Abdullah bin Amr from the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) who said: Allah looks upon His creatures on the night of mid-Sha`ban and He forgives all His servants except two: one intent on hatred, and homicide. [Ahmad in al-Musnad Volume 2, Page No. 176]

Hafidh al-Mundhiri said: reported by Ahmad with a weak (layyin) chain of narration. [al-Targhib wal-Tarhib Volume 3, Page No. 284]

Al-Haithami said: reported by Ahmad and it contains Ibn Lahiah who is weak (layyin) in hadith [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

And the rest of its "narrators are trustworthy" As for Sheikh Ahmad Shakir, he declared it "Sahih" in his editing of the [Musnad Volume 10, Page No. 327]

On the basis of his declaring Sahih the hadith of Ibn Lahiah. And that which al-Mundhiri and al-Haithami said is correct because Ibn Lahiah is a mudallis, and may (?) have mixed up, amd may have clarified hearing so the isnad contains weakness (layyin), and layyin is the slightest form of weakness, and its like is Hasan (well authenticated) by the addition of another chain of transmission similar to it, and how is it when the hadith has multiple chains of transmission.

As for the hadith of Muadh bin Jabal, it is reported by Ibn Hibban in his "Sahih" [Volume 12, Page No. 481]

And others all of them from Makhul from Malik bin Yukhamir from Muadh in a "(marfu) multiple chains of transmission" form. [Abu Nuaym in al-Hilyah Volume 5, Page No. 195]

Aug 4 (20 hours ago)
'W'aseem
Hafidh al-Haithami said : reported by al-Tabarani in al-Kabir and al-Awsat and "its narrators are trustworthy" And Malik bin Yukhamir is trustworthy (thiqah) mukhdaram and he met Makhul, and there is no missing link (inqata) in its chain.

To conclude Ibn Hibban was correct to declare it "Sahih (rigorously authenticated)".

And from the previous two chains of transmission alone you will know the short sightedness of the one who adjudges this hadith to be weak. [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Hurairah it is reported by al-Bazzar in his al-Musnad [Kashf al- Astar Volume 2, Page No. 435-436]

Al-Haithami said: reported by al-Bazzar and it contains Hisham bin Abd al-Rahman, and I do not know him, "and the rest of its narrators are trustworthy". [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Thulabah al-Khushani it is reported by al-Tabarani [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65, and Ibn Abi Asim in al-Sunnah Volume 1, Page No. 223]

Al-Haithami said: It contains al-Ahwas bin Hakim and he is weak, and the correct opinion with regards to al-Ahwas is that of al-Darqutni that he is relied upon if he narrates from a "trustworthy (thiqah) narrator". [al-Tahdhib Volume 1, Page No. 168]

And his like are relied upon in the chapter of follow up and supporting narrations. [Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]


As for the hadith of Awf bin Malik, it is reported by al-Bazzar in his Musnad [Kashf al-Astar Volume 2, Page No. 436]

From the hadith of Abdullah bin Lahiah- Abd al-Rahman bin Ziyad Ibn Naeem – Ubadah bin Nasi – Kathir bin Murrah – Awf bin Malik said: The Messenger of Allah 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).

Al-Haithami said: reported by al-Bazzar and it contains Abd al-Rahman bin Ziyad bin Anam, he was declared "Thiqah (Sound)" by Ahmad bin Saleh and he was declared weak by the majority of the Imams, and Ibn Lahiah is layyin (weak) and the rest of its "narrators are trustworthy". [Majma al-Zawaid Volume 6, Page No. 56]

I say: The Sanad which even one Muhadith says is "Correct" is considered "Authentic".

The weakness is limited to Ibn Lahiah only (?) and al-Ifriqi a discussion of him has preceded in the chapter of al-Adhan.

As for the hadith of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq it is reported by [Ibn Khuzaimah in al-Tawhid Hadith No 90, and al-Baihaqi al-Targhib Volume 3, Page No. 283, and Ibn Abi Asim Hadith No 509]

Al-Bazzar said: The people of knowledge report this hadith and rely upon it.

Al-Haithami said: It contains Abd al-Malik bin Abd al-Malik, he was mentioned by Ibn Abi Hatim in al-Jarh wal-Tadil and he was "not" declared weak and the "rest of its narrators are trustworthy". [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Musa it is reported by [Ibn Majah Volume 1, Page No. 446, and al-Lalikai No. 763]

From the hadith of Ibn Lahiah – Zubair bin Muslim – Dahhak – Abd al-Rahman bin Musa in a marfu form. Ibn Lahiah, the discussion regarding him has preceded, and his sheikh is unknown (majhul) [al-Taqrib Page No. 214]

And his Sheikh is "Trustworthy (thiqah)" [al-Taqrib Page No. 279]

As for the hadith of Aishah it contains the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) staying up on that night, it is reported by [Ahmad - Tirmidhi - Ibn Majah - al-Lalikai - Ibn al-Jawzi in al-Illal - and al-Baghawi - and others from the chain of transmission from: Hajjaj bin Artah – Yahya bin Abi Kathir – Urwah – Aishah said: I missed the Prophet one night so I went out to al-Baqi` (and found him). He said: "Were you afraid that Allah would wrong you and that His Prophet would wrong you?" I said: "O Messenger of Allah, I thought that you might have gone to visit one of your wives." He said: "Allah Glorious and Exalted descends to the nearest heaven on the night of mid-Sha`ban and He forgives to more people than the number of hairs on the hides of the sheep of the tribes of Kalb.

He (al-Albani) mentioned it in Daeef al-Tirmidhi (86/199) and in Daeef Ibn Majah (103,104/295) and He said: Daeef.

I say: The chain of narration contains a weak narrator, but the hadith is strong and established even according to al-Albani. And al-Hajjaj there is a discussion surrounding him, and he is a mudallis who did not clarify hearing. And Yahya bin Abi Kathir is a Hafidh thiqah (Sound), and there is a difference in his hearing from Urwah bin al-Zubair, and his hearing was affirmed by Yahya Ibn Maeen, and this is the strongest opinion because the affirmation is given precedence to the negation, and then he is a mudallis, and did not clarify having heard, and al-Hakim Abu Abdullah held the opinion that it is from the marasil of Yahya bin Abi Kathuir as in Shuab al-Iman.

And it has another chain of transmission from Aishah with a weak chain reported by [Baihaqi in al-Shuab Hadith Number 3835]

And it clearly contains (mention) of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) staying up on that night. And Allah the Exalted knows best.

Aug 4 (20 hours ago)
'W'aseem
To Conclude that which has preceded from the narrations affirming the virtue of the "Night of mid sha'ban" due to their collective number, not withstanding that one of them, and that is the narration of Muadh bin Jabal has been declared "Sahih" by Ibn Hibban in of itself and the words of al-Bazzar have preceded that: The people of knowledge report this hadith and rely upon it.

And the hadith is established (thabit) even according to al-Albani as he declared it "Sahih" in his [Silsila al-Sahihah Hadith No. 1144]

As for one who adjudges the hadith to be weak then he either has no knowledge of hadith, and it is incumbent for him to make taqlid of the one who is knowledgeable of it, or he is hasty or arrogant and we have no discussion with him.

And Allah Knows Best

Hafidh al-Haithami said : reported by al-Tabarani in al-Kabir and al-Awsat and "its narrators are trustworthy" And Malik bin Yukhamir is trustworthy (thiqah) mukhdaram and he met Makhul, and there is no missing link (inqata) in its chain.

To conclude Ibn Hibban was correct to declare it "Sahih (rigorously authenticated)".

And from the previous two chains of transmission alone you will know the short sightedness of the one who adjudges this hadith to be weak. [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Hurairah it is reported by al-Bazzar in his al-Musnad [Kashf al- Astar Volume 2, Page No. 435-436]

Al-Haithami said: reported by al-Bazzar and it contains Hisham bin Abd al-Rahman, and I do not know him, "and the rest of its narrators are trustworthy". [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Thulabah al-Khushani it is reported by al-Tabarani [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65, and Ibn Abi Asim in al-Sunnah Volume 1, Page No. 223]

Al-Haithami said: It contains al-Ahwas bin Hakim and he is weak, and the correct opinion with regards to al-Ahwas is that of al-Darqutni that he is relied upon if he narrates from a "trustworthy (thiqah) narrator". [al-Tahdhib Volume 1, Page No. 168]

And his like are relied upon in the chapter of follow up and supporting narrations. [Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]


As for the hadith of Awf bin Malik, it is reported by al-Bazzar in his Musnad [Kashf al-Astar Volume 2, Page No. 436]

From the hadith of Abdullah bin Lahiah- Abd al-Rahman bin Ziyad Ibn Naeem – Ubadah bin Nasi – Kathir bin Murrah – Awf bin Malik said: The Messenger of Allah 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).

Al-Haithami said: reported by al-Bazzar and it contains Abd al-Rahman bin Ziyad bin Anam, he was declared "Thiqah (Sound)" by Ahmad bin Saleh and he was declared weak by the majority of the Imams, and Ibn Lahiah is layyin (weak) and the rest of its "narrators are trustworthy". [Majma al-Zawaid Volume 6, Page No. 56]

I say: The Sanad which even one Muhadith says is "Correct" is considered "Authentic".

The weakness is limited to Ibn Lahiah only (?) and al-Ifriqi a discussion of him has preceded in the chapter of al-Adhan.

As for the hadith of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq it is reported by [Ibn Khuzaimah in al-Tawhid Hadith No 90, and al-Baihaqi al-Targhib Volume 3, Page No. 283, and Ibn Abi Asim Hadith No 509]

Al-Bazzar said: The people of knowledge report this hadith and rely upon it.

Al-Haithami said: It contains Abd al-Malik bin Abd al-Malik, he was mentioned by Ibn Abi Hatim in al-Jarh wal-Tadil and he was "not" declared weak and the "rest of its narrators are trustworthy". [al-Majma Volume 8, Page No. 65]

As for the hadith of Abu Musa it is reported by [Ibn Majah Volume 1, Page No. 446, and al-Lalikai No. 763]

From the hadith of Ibn Lahiah – Zubair bin Muslim – Dahhak – Abd al-Rahman bin Musa in a marfu form. Ibn Lahiah, the discussion regarding him has preceded, and his sheikh is unknown (majhul) [al-Taqrib Page No. 214]

As for the hadith of Aishah it contains the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) staying up on that night, it is reported by [Ahmad - Tirmidhi - Ibn Majah - al-Lalikai - Ibn al-Jawzi in al-Illal - and al-Baghawi - and others from the chain of transmission from: Hajjaj bin Artah – Yahya bin Abi Kathir – Urwah – Aishah said: I missed the Prophet one night so I went out to al-Baqi` (and found him). He said: "Were you afraid that Allah would wrong you and that His Prophet would wrong you?" I said: "O Messenger of Allah, I thought that you might have gone to visit one of your wives." He said: "Allah Glorious and Exalted descends to the nearest heaven on the night of mid-Sha`ban and He forgives to more people than the number of hairs on the hides of the sheep of the tribes of Kalb.

He (al-Albani) mentioned it in Daeef al-Tirmidhi (86/199) and in Daeef Ibn Majah (103,104/295) and He said: Daeef.

I say: The chain of narration contains a weak narrator, but the hadith is strong and established even according to al-Albani. And al-Hajjaj there is a discussion surrounding him, and he is a mudallis who did not clarify hearing. And Yahya bin Abi Kathir is a Hafidh thiqah (Sound), and there is a difference in his hearing from Urwah bin al-Zubair, and his hearing was affirmed by Yahya Ibn Maeen, and this is the strongest opinion because the affirmation is given precedence to the negation, and then he is a mudallis, and did not clarify having heard, and al-Hakim Abu Abdullah held the opinion that it is from the marasil of Yahya bin Abi Kathuir as in Shuab al-Iman.

And it has another chain of transmission from Aishah with a weak chain reported by [Baihaqi in al-Shuab Hadith Number 3835]

And it clearly contains (mention) of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) staying up on that night. And Allah the Exalted knows best.

Aug 4 (20 hours ago)
'W'aseem
To Conclude that which has preceded from the narrations affirming the virtue of the "Night of mid sha'ban" due to their collective number, not withstanding that one of them, and that is the narration of Muadh bin Jabal has been declared "Sahih" by Ibn Hibban in of itself and the words of al-Bazzar have preceded that: The people of knowledge report this hadith and rely upon it.

And the hadith is established (thabit) even according to al-Albani as he declared it "Sahih" in his [Silsila al-Sahihah Hadith No. 1144]

As for one who adjudges the hadith to be weak then he either has no knowledge of hadith, and it is incumbent for him to make taqlid of the one who is knowledgeable of it, or he is hasty or arrogant and we have no discussion with him.

And Allah Knows Best

ASA,

I intend to keep a fast during shab-e-baraath which will InshaAllah remind me throughout the day to do zikr and ask for forgiveness for myself and others.

As muslims, we should be engaging ourselves in worship to our Creatore as much as we can, and for myself days like shab-e-baraath and ramadan allow me to do that more often than most other days.

I disagree with making halwas as its a waste of time and most asians would be better off not stuffing down all that sugar(!)

ASA,

I am an Indian Hindu married to a Shia Muslim from Uttar Pradesh. It is encouraging to see that so many young Bangladeshi's take their religion seriously and follow it sincerely.
We celebrate both Hindu and Muslim festivals in our house. On shab-e-baraat we make halwa, not with the intention of hogging it ourselves, but as an offering to our departed elders. The halwa is offered as 'nazr' and the fateha is recited for all our departed relavtives with 'duas'asking for peace to their souls. My husband spends the nigth offering namaaz of 100 rakaat.

May God bless you all !!

Salaam,
When someone mentions that the supporting hadeeth is weak, it doesnt mean that the hadith is irrelevant or might be wrong. The word "weak" in weak hadith is for the reference reporting the hadith. If there no contradicting hadith then it is assumed that the hadith will be acted up with equal importance. Please refer to askimam.org or shariahboard.org detailed explaination.

For hadith on shab e baraat, please consider references at: http://www.askimam.org/fatwa/fatwa.php?askid=364e44a0299d009b501d22018dd451e6

I think people are interested to learn about what is right and wrong in Islam, but the problem is that we are stuck to our past. Most of us think about preservingour culture and forget that islam is in itself a lifestyle and/or culture. It is fine that we do ibadaat on this night..or any night for that matter..but for us to celebrate it as a holiday and make it a feast, as i know my family once did is wrong. I am not a religious scholar, but we should think about praying on specific days only.

Ahsanul Majid said...

I read an article about 'Shab e Barat' in the newspaper couple of years back where the author referred to Sura Qadr about Shab e Barat. I was little inquisitive and read the referred Ayaat and Tafsir. I found that said Ayaat of Sura Qadr said about Lailatul Qadr but nothing said about Shab e Barat. A question arose in my mind, why Shab e Barat is not observed in the whole Muslim World? People say that, it’s a night of fortune and budget of the ensuing year is done on this night. Non-regular Salat performers take it as a chance and offers this Nafal Salat for the whole night as a short cut. Allah the most merciful knows what we are doing and in no way we can bluff Allah, the great.

"Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) reported the Prophet (pbuh) as saying:
-Gabriel (peace be upon him) came to me on the night of mid-Shaban and said to me:
- "O Muhammad, raise your head heavenwards!" I asked him:
- "What night is this?" and he replied:
- "This is the night when Allah (Glorified is He) opens three hundred of the gates of mercy, forgiving all who do not make anything His partner. The only exceptions are those who practice sorcery or divination, are addicted to wine, or persist in usury and illicit sex; these He does not forgive until they repent."
At a quarter of the night, Gabriel (peace be upon him) came down and said: "O Muhammad, raise your head!" So I looked up, to behold the gates of Paradise wide open.
At the first gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who bow in worship this night!" At the second gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who prostrate themselves in worship this night!"
At the third gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who offer supplication this night!" At the fourth gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who make remembrance this night!"
At the fifth gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who weep this night from fear of Allah!" At the sixth gate, an angel was calling: "Good news for those who submit this night!" At the seventh gate, an angel was calling: "Will anyone ask, that his request may be granted?" At the eighth gate, an angel was calling: "Will anyone seek forgiveness, that he may be forgiven?"
I said: "O Gabriel, how long will these gates remain open?" He replied: "From the beginning of the night until the break of dawn." Then he said: "O Muhammad, tonight Allah has as many slaves emancipated from the Fire as the number of woolly hairs on the flocks and herds of Kalb."

The single biggest logical proof to prove that ‘Shabe-Baraat’ is not a part of the deen is that the term or word ‘Shabb’ is not even an Arabic word!!!

Anonymous said...

The Arabic
term for ‘night’ is ‘layl’, and ‘shabb’ is actually a Persian (Farsi) term
meaning ‘night’! It is neither logical
nor possible nor conceivable that the Messenger of Allah (saws) who was an Arab
and only spoke the Arabic language, would ever term or name a night in the
Persian language!!!

SHAON,
YOUR KNOWLEDGE IS POORLY EQUIPPED. HALF KNOWLEDGE IS HARMFUL. MY ADVICE IS KINDLY FIND A RIGHT TUTOR SO YOU WILL VENTURE IN A RIGHT DIRECTION REGARDING ISLAM AND SHABE BARAAT

Hasheem Abdullah said...

[[[ PART 1 ]]]

As'Salamu Alaykum

There is nothing written in Quran about Shab-e-Barat. Only the Hadith says about it.

Now before starting about Shab-e-Barat, lets check something about Hadith.

--------------------------------
HADITH: The number of hadiths collected and attributed to the prophet Muhammed is in

the hundreds of thousands, as much as 700,000.

All the Hadits were written after the death of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). These Hadits

are not written by Prophet Muhammad, and there is no single word in Quran that says

about Hadith.

Now check something about the Hadiths:

(1) Malik Ibn Anas collected about 500 hadiths in his famous book, "Al-Muwattaa"

(2) Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, collected about 40,000 hadiths, in his famous "Musnad".He chose

these 40,000 hadiths from among 700,000 hadiths. In other words he thought 660,000

hadith were un-proven, lies and/or fabrications and the others may be authentic. That

is 94% lies and fabrications

(3) Bukhary collected about 600,000 hadiths and accepted 7275 hadiths and considered

592,725 hadiths to be un-proven hadiths, lies and/or fabrications, that is almost 99%

of what he collected .

(4)Moslem collected 300,000 hadiths and only accepted 4000 of them, and refused about

296,000 . that is almost 99% of these collected hadiths .

Hasheem Abdullah said...

[[[ PART 2 ]]]

Now let's check some verses from Al Quran:

1. "Let them then produce a recital like unto it (Quran), If (it be) they speak the

truth."
Quran 52:34

[Note: It is not possible for any person to produce anything like Quran]

2. "...verily We have propounded for men, in this Qur'an every kind of Parable..."
Quran 30:58

[Note: Allah has given all type of Parable to explain His word to you, then is there

any necessity of any other book to learn about Islam where Quran, the revelation of

Allah, is beside you?]

3. "This (Quran) is guidance;..."
Quran 45:11

[Note: Guidance is Quran, not anything else.]

4. "...a Messenger from among themselves who recites unto them HIS Signs (Allah's

Signs), and purifies them, and teaches them the Book (Quran) and wise words..."
Quran 62:2

[Note: Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) also preached to mankind from the teaching of Quran.]

5. "We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember..."
Quran 54:17

[Note: Where Quran is revealed in the easiest and understandable form for Mankind,

then is there any necessity of other Books to understand Quran?]

6. "...this Qur'an is an exhortation enough."

[Note: Where Quran is the 'Exhortation Enough' then why the necessity of something

else?]

7. "In what Message, then, after it (Quran), will they believe?"
Quran 77:50

[Note: Where the Quran is completely revealed, then what more is necessary after

Quran?]

8. "...judge among them by what Allah has revealed..."

[Note: Quran is a revelation of Allah, Do you think that Hadith is a revelation of

Allah? Is there any verse in Quran that can prove that Hadith is the revelation of

Allah?]

Now Ask yourself some questions:
1. Do you think Hadith is written or revealed by Allah or Prophet Muhammad?
ANSWER: NO.

2. While Hadith is not the revelation of Allah, then should we follow Hadith?
ANSWER: NO.

3. What Quran says about it itself: Is Quran Hard to understand? Is Quran need any

other Book to understand? Is Quran Incomplete Word of Allah, and was Allah revealed

something more than Quran?
ANSWER: NO.

4. Hadith is written after the Death of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and Prophet Muhammad

(pbuh) never said to write such books. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) taught mankind from

Quran, and never said about Hadith. So, do you believe that on Hadith 100%?
ANSWER: NO.

5. Do you think that, when Allah revealed Quran easily, and explaining everything,

then is there any necessity of other books like Hadith to understand the Way of

Allah?
ANSWER: NO.

If your anser is NO, then why HADITH? Why not QURAN, the revelation of Allah?

Actually, HADITHs are some books that contains the Story and Saying of Prophet

Muhammad (pbuh), but NOT ANY REVELATION OF ALLAH. And there is no 100% Guaranty that

these books are Must Necessary, or 100% True.

But,
QURAN is the Final revelation of Allah.
QURAN is Complete, Easy to understand and acceptable.
QURAN is the Way to Allah.
Nothing can be like QURAN, or there is no need of any other book to support QURAN.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Read Quran, try to understand it, and try to

follow the Words of Quran. Not Anything else.

Hasheem Abdullah said...

[[[ PART 3 ]]]
--------------------------------

Now i am starting about Shab-e-Barat.

First ask some questions yourself:
1. Your will do all the wrongs whole year long, and you will pray whole night of

Barat. Will Allah will forgive you?

Then will it not give the Sinners chance to do wrong whole year long, as they have a

chance to get free from the Suffering of their Sins at the night of Barat. Isn't it?

2. [The person who will accept Fasting at the 15th Sab'an, the Fire of Hell will not

touch Him/Her - Abu Daud]

Do you think that, just one day Fasting of all the Sinners (terrorists, murderers

etc) will save them from the fire of Dojokh?

3. [Today the fate of people will be written. Which person will be rich, or which

person will be poor. And which person will die or which will born.]

Do you think that, a Day which is related to the Fate of Mankind, got no importance

to be written in Quran? If it would be true, then we must get it written in Quran.

Isn't it?

Learn QURAN, the revelation of Allah. Not anything else, what your parents, your

society, your culture teaches you. Because anyone can tell wrong, but QURAN will

never tell you wrong.

Asif said...

For those who says its innovation or bid'ah, etc. here is my point of clearance that nobody praying this night is irragular in FARAD namaz dont even think that concept is only to pray this night while FARAD to be set aside. cooking halwa and eating , distributing doesnt bother anyone tht he will left the FARAD namaz and will be buzy in eatin halwa. well dear all what if some one or a group of People went to mosque and raise the name of ALLAH do raku o sajood.conclusively saying if someone do not like it dont go and if saying its wrong then surely he saying IBADAT of ALLAH is haram (nauzbillah astaghfirullah)>>

Asif said...

hasheem abdullah raised a question and made self originated answer>>

i thought in deep of ur question tht will Allah forgive for a one night ibaadat of all sins. if i do say YES it means sure y not ALLAH is QADIR A MUTLAQ HE Can
and u r saying tht it isnt then u r doin KUFAR means limiting the powers of ALLAH.
for ur knowledge evrey muslim knows what is farad namaz surly ppl goin mosque for specl ibadat do better know Farad.
A sinner if return is always accepted and forgived by ALLAH. here u r no authority to say tht a sinner cannot be forgiven while Allah with His authority says whenever a sinner will return will be forgiven.

Hasheem Abdullah said...

People prays to Allah in the Special Days, in the Special hours, but they doesn't know that, not only the Special Days but also all other days are of Allah and for Allah. So, we should pray and worship Allah daily, not only in the Special days.

We can do anything for Allah, if it glorifies Allah. We can do anything for Allah if it is about Allah.

There is nothing bad to do for Allah, whatever it is.

But the main problem is that, if we believe something which Allah never said to believe, then it will be the worst matter. If we do something that Allah never said to do, then it will be the worst.

If you structure your religion according to your personal thought, and if you create any rule or law according to your traditional belief, but which are not from Allah. Then you are creating your own religion. You are not following what exactly your Allah is teaching you. You are adding something with Allah teaching. In a sense you are editing the Law of Allah.

May Allah help you all to understand the truth of Islam according to Quran...

Asif said...

this is ur personal thought "ppl do not know tht they have to worship ALLAH all days".A muslim must have knowledge of what are FARAD.
so wat u think tht Allah said not to worship in shabbe barat let me have this proof.
y do u beleive in preaching Islam on internet is correct, isnt this u doin BIDDAH where is the proof in quran or ahadis.u made addition in deen Allah never said to do.
in a sense u r limiting the scope of Deen.u better c evolution of FIQH.

Hasheem Abdullah said...

Is anything written about Shab-e-Barat in Quran? I hope not. Just think, what are the beliefs that people hold about Shab-e-Barat. Where the people have got such type of beliefs? Surely Allah never said anything about it in Quran. While people accept something which is not verified by Allah then should we do that?

I never said that, 'at the night of Barat we should not pray'. I am just saying about the false beliefs about the Shab-e-Barat.

If a Muslim worships Allah at the day of Good Friday (Claimed date of death of Isa by Christianity), then it will not be bad because he is not worshiping Isa or not worshiping for Good Friday, but worshiping his Allah as usually he does everyday. But, if Muslim worships specially at the Good Friday believing what the Christian people believe, then it will mean that, that Muslim person is believing what the Christian are believing. Isn't it? Because he is watching that day Specially.

You said about the Duties of a Muslim. Do you think: if you just Pray 5 times a day, go for Hajj, give Zakat, Read Quran, and do Fasting, then you will get Eternal Peace!!! Who can say it, unless he/she can submit his entire (feelings, willing, beliefs, activities, life) to Allah. We should try to know about the Duties from Quran surely.

We go to Hajj, because it is our duty. But we doesn't know why should go to Hajj.
We do Fasting, but we can't control our Anger, Greediness for worldly matters. Then what is the result of our Fasting (Duty)?
We pray to Allah, we ask for help to Him, we give him thanks. But we can't trust on Him while we are in problem. We forget to give thanks when we get something good. Then what is the necessity of such type Formal Duties?

At first our Duty is to change our Inside, our mind, our behavior, our thought, our talking, our beliefs. Then we should do our external duties, and just then those external duties will be successful.

Finally, it is a duty of every Muslim to spread the Word of Allah among all; whatever the way of preaching is.

Hope Allah will help you to learn what actually he wants.

If you know bengali then read this site: islamic.6te.net

Hope you will understand.

yap Brother...i have read your aegument...its vey nice and lovely...but i think the main thing lies on the believe....if any one think that yap i will pray NAFAL prays i will do that on this ocearion thenit is well and fine..but what many people do?...they pray on the belief that if I pray whole of this night then I will get good luck cuz ALLAH determines the luck on this night...is this right or wrong?

Hasheem Abdullah said...

[Last]

Praying is surely good. There is nothing bad in it.

But check one thing,

A PERSON THINKS: I will pray to Allah so that I can get wealth, and get worldly good opportunities.

THE SECOND PERSON THINKS: I will pray to Allah because it is my responsibility, as I love (love of respect and obedience) my Allah. And I believe, if I do what Allah wants, then surely Allah will do for me what I need. Surely before asking Allah he knows what we need, and surely Allah keeps good lucks for His true followers.

Which one is the best thought behind the Prayer? Surely the Second one. Isn't it?

Above all one thing is, we all are interested about our luck for the next one year, but we are not interested at all about the luck of our eternal life (after death). A person prays for a long time so that he may get worldly good lucks for the next one year. But who gives such long time for prayer so that he may go to Jannah? Or, who prays to get help (from Allah) so that he can be a perfect Muslim?

We should think about Allah, then Allah will surely think about us. If we do for His will, will He not think about our wills, if we will something good?

We have to believe that, who are the True followers of Allah, Allah surely keeps all the good lucks for them. Isn't it?

Do you think that, Shab-e-Barat is the only day when Allah forgives the Sinners? If a Sinner returns from his Sinful Life and becomes a true Muslim in any month of the year, then will he have to wait for salvation until the Night of Barat comes? I don't think so, because the moment when a Sinner returns from his sinful belief and acts and accepts Allah in his mind and in his activities, Allah will forgive him just that moment, whether it is the Night of Barat or not. Then why people thinks that, only Shab-e-Barat is the Night when Allah is going to forgive us?

Again check one thing,

THE FIRST PERSON THINKS: Oh! I have done a lot of sins. Then I am going to get a lot of punishments. Oh no. I have to pray so that I can get rid of the punishments.

THE SECOND PERSON THINKS: Oh! What a worst person I am. I disobeyed my Allah, and it is surely dishonoring Him. Oh! what worst I have done. I should say Sorry to my Allah because whatever I have done, I am now understanding that, I did very bad.

Here which type of thought behind the Prayer Allah will like? Is not the second persons, who has sorrow for his sins?

We will lie whole year long, we will not control our vain desires although we know what we should do and we shouldn't. And while the Night of Barat comes we will ask forgiveness. Will Allah forgive us who did their Sinful acts consciously?

I don't want to hurt anyone through my talking. If anyone gets hurt, I am really sorry for that.

dear brother,

u posted an example of agood friday. do u know Allah has given us knowledge of days distinctions for example Eid, Ramadan, Hajj etc are on certainly on some special days. these days are chosen one by Allah. my point to say is that if the nights or days are equal then y Allah made the distinct day for eid, ramadan & hajj. Dear there is some importance in these days. all the days do pray Allah Why Jumma (friday) is spclly blessed to b in quran. point is days told to be important by Allah u must b knowing. what if about a day told by prophet s.a.w ?? y u critcising ?? do u know how to perform namaz? does Quran told us the way to perform namaz?? every thing is further disclosed by our Prophet S.a.w which is the transferred to Asahb R.A and to our forefathers. so y not to trust what our forefathers tell us or u to trust limiting islam by your own opnions??

[b]Garmin GVN 53[/b]

Управляйте своей поездкой с помощью Garmin GVN 53. Он представляет собой универсальный внешний GPS-приемник, который подключается к заводским автомобильным аудио/видео системам. И Вы сможете услышать голосовые подсказки о направлении движения с помощью стерео системы Вашего автомобиля и просмотреть Ваше перемещение на дисплее монитора.

Путешествуйте легко с новыми возможностями

Модель GVN 53 превращает аудио/видео систему Вашего транспортного средства в навигатор. Вы сможете проводить поиск конкретных адресов и объектов (ресторанов, гостиниц, заправочных станций и т.д.) и просматривать их расположение на электронной движущейся карте. Также Вы легко можете просматривать Ваше место расположения на карте и следить за перемещением. GVN 53 включает в себя функцию "text to speech". Это означает, что устройство будет объявлять название улицы, на которую Вам нужно поворачивать. Голосовые подсказки воспроизводятся через динамики автомобильной аудиосистемы. Также, графическим символам карты отображается Ваше передвижение на видео дисплее. GVN 53 укомплектован City Navigator® NT v.9 с помощью которого, Вы легко можете ориентироваться на карте, а с дополнительной опцией MapSource® есть возможность просматривать детализированные карты с объектами баз данных.
