Question Details


Question: kindly tell me in detail about this night and hadith regarding this for prayers and zikr.
Answer:

There are no prescribed rituals of worship to be performed on the 15th of Sha`ban. If there had been any such rituals to be performed, then it would have been stated clearly in the authentic traditions.

Having said this, we cannot stop people from performing nawafil any time; for nawafil are simply optional prayers; no one can stop anyone from performing them any time except those times when prayers are forbidden.

Extra devotions in the month of Shaban can merit great rewards. Aisha, the beloved wife of the Prophet (peace be upon him) reports the he used used to fast more days in sha’ban than any other month; he did so in preparation for the blessed month of Ramadhan. Likewise a person can also expend a lot more attention to all kinds of good deeds in the month of Shaban in anticipation for the month of Ramadhan.
