Tonight is known to Muslims as Shabe Barat or Lailatul Barat. This is the daytime night of the 14th day of the eighth month of the Hijri year. Shabe Barat is going to be held today as he. Believers consider this night to be especially virtuous. So on this night they are engaged in worship.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to perform many acts of worship on this night. However, there is no specific worship for this night. Some of the deeds of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are considered as special acts of worship. In that light some of the deeds of this night are highlighted-
> Performing nafl prayers on
this night long (kerat) recitation of nafl prayers. On the night of mid-Sha’ban, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to offer more and more naafil prayers. It has been narrated in the hadith-
Hazrat Ayesha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: One night the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) woke up and stood in prayer and he was in prostration for so long that I doubted whether he had died. I got up and moved her thumb. The finger moved. I’m sure he’s alive. Then I came back to my place. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) raised his head from prostration and at one point after the prayer said, O Aa’ishah! Do you think that the Prophet of Allah has done any injustice to you? I said, O Messenger of God! I never thought of that. Instead, I was afraid to see you in prostration for a long time, whether God took you away or not! The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Do you know which night is tonight?’ I said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.” The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, The night is the fifteenth night of Shaban. In this the great lord pays special attention to his servants. Forgive the apologists. He bestows mercy on the seekers of mercy. On the other hand, he leaves the envious people in their own condition. (Shuabul Iman, At-Targhib)
> Praying more and more,
this night the prayer is accepted by Allah. So pray more and more. It has been
narrated that Hazrat Abdullah bin Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that there are five nights in which no prayer of the servant is returned. And that is
– – Friday night prayer
– First night prayer in the month of Rajab
– Half Shaban night prayer
– Eid night prayer of Ramadan – Eid night prayer
of Qurbani. (Musannafe Abdur Razzak)
Imam Shafi’i Rahmatullahi Alaihi said, “It has reached us that the prayers are accepted more and more in five nights.” Friday night, Eid-ul-Azhar night, Eid-ul-Fitr night, first night of Rajab month and 15th night of Shaban. (Kitabul Umm, As-Sunanul Kubra)
Please pray for God to gain more and more para

There is no alternative to repentance for the sins of the servant who has done more and more repentance and forgiveness . The servant remembers his sin and asks Allah for forgiveness for his decision to return from it. But God forgives the servant. It has been narrated that Hazrat Osman Ibn Abil
As (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: On the 15th night of the month of Sha’ban, Allah used to say: Do any of you have an apology? I will forgive him. Is there anyone among you who wants something? I will meet all his needs. Then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: In this way all the legitimate wishes of all the supplicants are fulfilled. But the prayers of adulterers and polytheists are not accepted. (Shuabul Iman)
