The Fasts of Sha’baan and the Virtues of the 15th of Sha’baan

The Fasts of Sha’baan and the Virtues of the 15th of Sha’baan

Hadith 17: Tabrani and Ibn Hib’ban report from Muadh bin Jabl
that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘On the 15th of Sha’baan Allah Manifests His
Tajal’li (Divine Blessings) towards the entire creation, and He forgives
all, except the unbelievers and those who harbor enmity.’
Hadith 18/19: Baihaqi reported from Ummul Mo’mineen Siddiqa
that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Jibra’eel  visited Me and said,
‘This is the 15th of Sha’baan. In it Almighty Allah frees from Hell, as
much as the hair on the backs of the goats of the Bani Kalb, except for
an unbeliever and He (Allah) does not direct His Divine Sight of Mercy

upon those who harbor enmity, and upon those who severe family
ties, and upon those who drag their clothes (with pride), and upon
those who disobey their parents, and upon those who are habitual
alcoholics.’’
The narration which is mentioned by Imam Ahmed from Ibn Umar also mentions a murderer.

Hadith 20: Baihaqi reported from Ummul Mo’mineen Siddiqa that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Almighty Allah Manifests His Tajal’li
on the eve of the 15th of Sha’baan. He forgives those who seek
forgiveness and He showers His Mercy upon those who seek His
Mercy and He leaves those who harbor enmity, in their (pathetic)
condition.’

Hadith 21: Ibn Majah reports from Ali that Nabi Kareem
صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘When the eve of the 15th of Sha’baan arrives, remain standing
(i.e. remain awake in Ibaadat) on this night, and fast in the day, for
Allah Manifests His Special Tajal’li on the sky of the earth from sunset,
and He says, ‘Is there anyone who seeks forgiveness, so that I may
forgive him! Is there anyone who seeks sustenance, so that I may bless
him with sustenance! Is there someone in calamity, so that I may
grant him relief! Is there anyone in such and such a condition, and He
announces this until the break of Fajr.’’

Hadith 22: Ummul Mo’mineen Siddiqa says, ‘I did not see
Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم keep as many fast in any other month, compared to
what He صلى الله عليه وسلم kept in Sha’baan.’
