Default Happy blessed 15th of Sha'ban!

Would like to greet everyone on this blessed night (nisf-us-sha'ban/shab-e-barat/eid-ul-malayika) which is considered the second most sacred night in the Islamic calander. Laylat-ul-Qadr, of course, being the most sacred night in Islam.

Let us make dua for everyone of us; parents, grandparents, siblings, extended fam, our spiritual teachers, scholars, leaders and, especially, the entire muslim ummah.

Please keep me in your supplications. Salam/Peace!

Thanks for posting it BanCricFan. Tonight is Shab-e-Barat in UK. It's probably night after tomorrow in Bangladesh.

In USA( or in Michigan at least), most mosques do not recognize Shab-e-barat. I was surprised to find that out, but its true.

Can someone put some light on this about why?

Dear Dhrubo, lets not dispute tonight. I have studied Islamic Fiqh (jurisprudence) in different countries and have come across many "adilla" or proofs of validity of 15th of Sha'ban... Saudi Arabia is run by the Wahabi sect and they don't follow any traditional "school of thoughts" or madhabs. Therefore, you have not seen them observing this blessed night. Rest assure, this is not a "bid'a" or innovation in Deen.

I wish you all the blessing this night might have in store for you:-)

Could they be run by the Wahabis/salafis??

Read "Ihya-uloom-ud-deen" by Imam Al-Ghazzali and the chapter of "nisf-us-sha'ban" or 15th of Sha'ban.

Well i dont follow the religion but i do know about rules of islam. I have talked with alot of knowledgable islamic people in london. So far they all said not to celebrate days like shab-e-barat. Its made up. Infact some of them actually said its a sin to do so. But countries like bd(and only in bd??!) celebrates it quite big. Then again they also worship things like mazar and self claimed peers. (To me they are just a bunch of con and scam who's robbing poeple by immotionally blackmailing them). So m not surprized.

Just to make sure- I do acknowledge there are some dubious stuffs goes on in the name of "Shab-e-barat" in some countries, i.e- lighting candles in graveyards etc which are frowned upon by the scholars, whom, otherwise, encourage the observance of 15th of Sha'ban.

But seriously BanCricFan, i do know what i m talking about and there isnt any space for shab-e-barat in Islam. If you think i am talking rubbish, go soudi, find the biggest scholer and ask that. He probaby wouldnt even hav a clue what exactly u were talking about.

sunny, a scholar from Saudi is not necessarily the most knowledgeable scholar of Islam.

I'm kind of double minded here. One, since I'm grown up that way, I'm leaned toward following it, then on the other hand when they say this I kind of find it logical: Allah gave humans free will. Then, what is there about writing luck? If everything is written on this night, what is the point of trying for things. What meant to happen will happen, right?

I'm confused, need some insight.

AF, what you think?
