Ayyam Bayz”

The 13th, 14th and 15th of Rajab, Shabaan and Ramadan are known as “Ayyam Bayz” which are known as the “Days of Passing Splendour” or “Bright Days”.

The Holy Prophet (sws) had said that during the nights of the 15th Shabaan, the Almighty takes decisions in the matters of sustenance, life, death and the welfare of the people.

Next to the “Night of Qadr”, the 15th Shabaan is the most auspicious night (also known as the “Night of Baraat”). According to the Holy Imam Muhammad bin Ali al-Baqir (a.s) and Jafar bin Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s), the Almighty Allah (swt) has promised to fulfil every legitimate desire put forward to Him in that night.

Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s.) has said:

“Whoso prays during the nights of “Ayyam Bayz”, in fact, stands at the door of the superabundant favours, bounties and benefits available in these months.”

It is highly desirable to hold fast on the 13th, 14th and 15th, have a bath each day and give alms in the way of Allah (swt).

In the nights of “Ayyam Bayz” Momin are instructed to pray a 12 Rak’at namaz as follows:

In the night of the 13th, pray 12 Rak’ats and recite Surah Al Fatihah, Surah Yaaseen and Surah Al Mulk are recited in each Rak’at.

In the night of the 14th, pray 4 Rak’ats in 2 sets of 2 Rak’at, and each set recite Surah Al Fatihah, Surah Yaaseen and Surah Al Mulk.

In the night of the 15th, pray 6 Rak’ats in 3 sets of 2 Rak’ats and in each recite Surah Al Fatihah, Surah Yaaseen and Surah Al Mulk.

The 15th Night of Shabaan

he 15th night of Shabaan will fall on the night of the 9th of Sep. in 2006. Of this night Muslims have been told by Prophet Muhammad (sws) that:”When the night of the middle of Shabaan comes, spend the night in prayer and fast the next day for in it Allah t’Allah forgives more sins than the hairs of the goats of the tribe of Kalb.”Prophet Muhammad (sws) has also been quoted as having said:” When the night of the middle of Shabaan comes, Allah descends to the lowest Heaven and says, “Is there anyone begging for forgiveness that I might forgive him? Is there anyone begging for sustenance that I may feed him? Is there any such and such?” And we are told that Allah stays at this lowest heaven ready to accede to our legitimate requests until the break of dawn.”

This is Laylat-ul-Barat, this is the fifteenth of Sha’baan, a very great night. In this night you should be attentive in the worship of Allah, for this is the night of accounting. Whichever child is to be born during the coming year is written down on the list on this night, and the name of whoever is going to pass away in the coming year is deleted from the list.”

  2. can u please give me a quranic reference for the shab-e-baraat as i have to convince those who r not shias. please its very impotant….the references should be from the quranic ayahs and innumerable ahadiths of the prophet (PBUHP).

  3. shuja you do not need quranic verses to prove the importance of shab e barat to a sunni. the sources are in bukharee and muslim. i myself a sunni have been bought up observing the 15th of shabaan as have all the sunnis arround me unless the person you are trying to convince is a wahabi (FYI- no wahabi calls them self a wahabi on the contrary they think they are the true followers of the sunna and say they are true sunni)

    all sunnis know the importance of shab e baraat and stay up most of the night praying and asking for forgiveness. so a shia doesnt need to convince a sunni about the 15th of shabban. i was quite amazed to actually learn that shia’s observe it too

  4. Assalaam walaikum,

    ALLAH HAFEES.

    I am a student of Quran and Ahadees. In last khutbah of Nabi Kareem PBUH said Today deen is completed. so that means whatever rituals and celebrations and do’s and dont’s of deen are told and acted and discribed clearly. Now refering to Irum we should seek quranic and hadees authorization for any of the ritual we do in the name of islam. Counciling quran and ahadees has its importance No One should and can deny from that. And if we deny then we are denying the Muhammad’s PBUH wording and agreeing upon that islam is yet not completed and there is room for new ibadah and rituals.
    May God bless up the knowledge of islam. Amin.
