300 GATES OF MERCY OPEN

15 Shabaan — a Night ‘loaded’ with RICHES!

DONT MISS OUT

300 GATES OF MERCY OPEN —- BOOK OF DEEDS PRESENTED TO LORD OF THE UNIVERSE — AFFAIRS OF THE YEAR ARRANGED —

AUSPICIOUSNESS OF THIS NIGHT

Prophet (s.a.w.) said:

“Sha’ban is my month and Ramadhan is the month of Allah.”

The fifteenth night and day of this month have specific significance for the auspiciousness, grandeur and blessing they posses.

The Prophet (s.a.w.) had encouraged the Muslims to keep vigil in that night and to keep fast on that day. In this night, the Prophet (s.a.w.) himself kept vigil, visited the graveyard of Madinah, prayed for the forgiveness of the sins of the dead and kept fast in the day.

ALLAH OPENS 300 GATES oF MERCY ON THIS NIGHT

THREE HUNDRED GATES OF MERCY ARE OPENED IN THE NIGHT OF MID SHA’BAN:

Hadrat Abu Huraira{may Allah be pleased with him}reported that Rasullullah{salallahu alaihi wassallam}said: “Gabriel {peace be upon him}came to me on the night of mid Sha’ban and said to me:”Ya RasulAllah,raise your head heavenwards!” I asked him: “What night is this?”and he replied: “This is night when Allah{Glorified is He}opens three hundred of the gates of mercy,forgiving all who do not make anything His partner. The only exceptions are those who practice sorcery or divination,are addicted to wine,or persist in usuary and illict sex; these He does not forgive untill they repent.” At a quarter of the night, Gabriel {peace be upon him}came down and said: Ya RasulAllah , raise your head!” So i looked up,to behold the gates of Paaradise wide open.At the first gate an angel was calling: “Good news for those who bow in worship this night!” At the second gate an angel was calling: Good news for those who prostrate themselves in worship this night!” At the third gate an angel was calling: “Good news for those who offer supplication this night!” At the fourth gate an angel was calling: “Good news for those who make remembrance this night!”At the fifth gate an angel was calling: “Good news for those who weep this night from the fear of Allah!” At the sixth gate an angel was calling:”Good news for those who submit this night!” At the seventh gate an angel was calling: “Will anyone ask,that his request may be granted ?” At the eight gate an angel was calling :”Will anyone seeks forgiveness,that he may be forgiven?” Rasullullah{salsllahu alaihi wassallam}said: “O Gabriel,how long will these gates remain open?” He replied: From the beginning of the night until the break of dawn.” Then he said: “Ya rasulAllah , tonight Allah has as many slaves emancipated from the fire of hell as the number of wooly hairs on the flocks and herds of tribe Kalb.”

 

AFFAIRS OF THE YEAR ARRANGED ON THIS NIGHT

In a long Prophetic narration, narrated in Ghunya tut-Talibin, the Messenger of Allah said, that is the night of mid-Shabaan (15 night) when Allah (Exalted is He) arranges the affairs of the year. He transfers [some of] the living to the list of dead, and records those who will make pilgrimage [Hajj] to the House of Allah that year, neither adding one too many nor leaving a single one of them out.”

WHAT TO DO ?

DAY :

FAST — OK So Why Fast ??

Dates- 13, 14, 15 Shabaan Or 14 and  Or 15th ….  ITS up to you  but 15th is really important!

* Master of Masters, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said that whoever fasts three days in the month of Shabaan and at the time of iftaar recites 3 times darood [salawat] on me, his sins will be forgiven and his provisions will be amplified and on the Day of Judgment he will enter Paradise..

* The blessed companion Usama ibn Zaid, Radi-Allahu anhu, reports that he asked Prophet  Muhammad, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam: “Messenger of Allah, I have seen you fasting in the month of Sha’ban so frequently that I have never seen you fasting in any other month.” Prophet Muhammad, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, replied: “That (Sha’ban) is a month between Rajab and Ramadan which is neglected by many people. And it is a month in which an account of the deeds (of human beings) is presented before the Lord of the universe, so, I wish that my deeds be presented at a time when I am in a state of fasting.”

Since the book of deeds is changed on the 15 night, if it is possible, also fast on the 14th so that the last day of the yearly deed book is spent fasting and the first day is spent fasting.

AFTER  MAGHRIB SALAAH :

Pray 6 Rakaat Namaaz as Follows ( 3 Sets of 2 Rakaat Each)

2 Rakaat: Intention – Request for Long life with good health

2 Rakaats: Intention – Request Relief from problems and evils
