    Nisfu Shaban aka Shab e Baraat

    Yeah its tonight Oct 31 2001
    As far as I know its the middle of shaban and nothing more.
    Why do people make it a holy night?
    Is there any significance to it?

      To Saadia and others inquiring about this topic,

      I found another source stating otherwise. Kindly refer to IMAGE GALLERY and read what I have taken a picture of from a book.

        AoA, yea i did read a or two frm Trimidhee, but i thikn it said, its a weak (da'eef) hadith. So not so sure about it . Last night, I did look for ahadith related to 15th Shaban in Bukhari, Muslim but i couldn't find anything on the 15th except for the reward one gets for fasting in Shaban.

          From the aayahs, ahaadeeth and scholarly opinions quoted above, it is clear to the seeker of truth that celebrating the middle of Sha’baan by praying on that night or in any other way, or by singling out that day for fasting, is a bid’ah which is denounced by most of the scholars. It has no basis in the pure sharee’ah; rather it is one of the things that was innovated in Islam after the time of the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them). It is sufficient for the seeker of truth, in this case and in others, to know the words of Allaah (interpretation of the meaning):

          “This day, I have perfected your religion for you…”[al-Maa’idah 5:3]

          Posting this not for argument sake, but this is one take on it. This is what I follow as well.
