Humans worship Allah Almighty and He
rewards the efforts of the worshippers. But
there are some special occasions when one’s
heart gets softened and one naturally feels
more inclined to His obedience. The softness
of hearts deepens as well. On such occasions,
the very environment seems emitting spiritual
enjoyment. Shab-e-Barat is one such occasion.
Literally, Shab-e-Barat means the night of
salvation or the night of freedom from the Fire
of Hell. It occurs in Mid-Shaban – between
the 14th and 15th day of Shaban. This night,

matters of wisdom (separately) by Our
Command.” (Sura ad-Dukhan, 44:3-5)
Imam Qurtubi and Imam Jalal-ud-Din Suyuti
hold that the verses refer to Laylatun Nisf min
Shaban or Shab-e-Barat.
The whole of the month of Shaban is
meritorious. Its excellent merit is evident from
a tradition narrated by Aisha, the mother of
the faithful: “The Prophet did not fast in any
month more than Shaban.” (Sahih Bukhari)
Though fasts were not obligatory on him, the
Prophet, yet he observed them most of the
The special merit is attached to Shab-e-Barat.
Aisha, the mother of the faithful, also reported:
“The Prophet said: ‘On the middle night of
