Supplication on Shab-e-Baraat

Supplication on Shab-e-Baraat

Allah, the Most Gracious says;-

And O dear Prophet (PBUH), when My bondmen question you concerning Me, then surely I am close; I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he calls on Me, so they must obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may attain guidance. (Surah Baqarah 2:186)

And your Lord proclaimed, “Pray to Me, I will accept; indeed those who stay conceited towards worshipping Me, will enter hell in disgrace." (Surah Momin 40:60)

Numan bin Bashir reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Du'a (supplication) is worship." (Abu Dawud) Narrated Abu Hurairah that Allah’s Apostle said ‘Whoever does not supplicate to Allah, then Allah is angry with him.’ (Bukhari in ‘Adab al-Mufrad’, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, al-Hakim, Ahmad, Ibn Abi Shaybah, al-Bayhaqi, Tabaraani.)

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah reported: The Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) said, "A slave becomes nearest to his Lord when he is in prostration. So increase supplications while prostrating." (Muslim).

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah reported: The Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) made many supplications which we did not memorize. We said to him: "O Allah’s Apostle! You have made many supplications of which we do not remember anything." He said, "Shall I tell you a comprehensive prayer? Say: (translated) “O Allah, I beg to You the good which Your Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) begged of You; and I seek refuge in You from the evil where from Your Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) sought refuge. You are the One from Whom help is sought and Your is the responsibility to communicate (the truth). There is no power or strength except with Allah the Most High, the Great.'" (At-Tirmidhi)

Sayyiduna Abu Darda' reported: The Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) said, "The supplication of a Muslim for his (Muslim) brother in his absence will certainly be answered. Whenever he makes a supplication for good for his brother, the angel appointed for this particular task says: "Ameen! May it be for you, too'." (Muslim).

Sayyiduna Ubadah bin As-Samit said: The Allah’s Apostle (PBUH) said, "Whenever a Muslim supplicates Allah, He accepts his supplication or averts any similar kind of trouble from him until he prays for something sinful

What must we do on Shab-e-Baraat- Do's and Dont's of Shab-e-Baraat

What must we do on Shab-e-Baraat- Do's and Dont's of Shab-e-Baraat

We will stress here on the fact that since increased worship and remembrance of Allah during this Night of Deliverance is a non-obligatory, there are no strict rules of what sort of worship must be done. These are only recommendations by our illustrious scholars, so that we reap the maximum out of our sincere worship, and the maximum out of our sincere supplications. If any slave wishes to concentrate on any sort of worship, he can definitely do that; who are we to prevent from virtue?

So one may do as much of the following one likes, for all these are loved by Allah, the Supreme:-

1. Repent from sins and seek Allah’s forgiveness.
2. Engage in Remembrance of Allah (Zikr)
3. Recite the Holy Qur’an
4. Send Salutations upon the Holy Prophet
5. Increase your knowledge by reading books of Tafseer etc.
6. Supplicate to Allah, seeking all the needs of this world and hereafter.
7. Offer the Maghrib, Isha and Fajr Obligatory Prayers with the congregation. This carries a very high reward, including spending the whole night in worship.
8. Attend the assembly of pious scholars, listen to their discourse, and try to gain some sacred beneficial knowledge. This too carries a very high reward, including spending the whole night in worship.
9. Offer the missed obligatory “Qada” Prayers, and resolve not to let them lapse again.
10. Offer Nawafil Prayers.
11. Offer additional charity to the needy, orphans and destitute.
12. Serve the parents.
13. Visit the Graveyard, especially graves of deceased parents.
14. Do Tawaaf of the Kaabah or any other virtuous etc.
15. Stay away from play and frivolous pastimes.

We have already listed some narrations regarding how Allah brings His slaves closer to Him, when they have completed their obligations and then persevere in the Nawafil (non obligatory).

Before we list out the recommendations of our illustrious scholars regarding the mode of worships, we list here-below the virtues of such worship, so that we understand them and incline towards them.
Perform Ghusl after Magrib Namaz for Safeguarding from Magic for the Whole Year till next Shab E Baraat  On the 15th night, After Magrib Namaz, Take Ghusl with Berry Leaves. Take 7 leaves, boil them in water and perform Ghusl with that water. Each person must have 7 leaves. After Ghusl, Perform 2 Rakats of nafl for tahiyatul wudu. In every Rakaat, after the Suratul Fatiha, you should read Ayatul Kursi once and Surah Ikhlas 3 times.

Repentance & Seeking Forgiveness during Shab-e-Baraat

Repentance & Seeking Forgiveness during Shab-e-Baraat

Allah, the Supreme, says:

And those (the pious) who, when they commit an immoral act or wrong themselves, remember Allah and seek forgiveness of their sins – and who forgives sins except Allah? And those who do not purposely become stubborn regarding what they did.(Surah Aale Imran 3:135)

“And ask forgiveness from your Lord and incline towards Him in repentance (Surah Hud 11:3)
And O Muslims, all of you turn in repentance together towards Allah, in the hope of attaining success (Surah Noor 24:31)

O People who Believe! Incline towards Allah in a repentance that becomes a guidance for the future".(Surah Tahreem 66:8)

“The one who repents from sin is like one who did not sin.” (Ibn Majah, Tabarani & others)
Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah reported: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying: "By Allah, I seek Allah's forgiveness and repent to Him more than seventy times a day." (Bukhari).

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah narrated: Allah’s Apostle said, "He who repents before the sun rises from the west, Allah will forgive him". (Muslim).
