April 2, 2017 by admin in Feature of the Month with 0 Comments

This year the 15th of Sha’baan will be celebrated on the night following Sunday, June 23, 2013. At Cary Masjid there will be special prayers during the night. The program starts following the ‘Isha prayers at 10:45 pm. Please join us in this blessed night of Mercy.

The 15th night of Sha’baan is a very blessed night. According to a Hadith Shareef, the name of this Mubarak night is “Nisf Sha’baan” which means 15th night of Sha’baan. This night it is also known as   Laylatul Baraa’ah, meaning the Night of Salvation.  In the India/Pakistan sub-continent it is known as Shabbe Baraat.

On this night AllahSWT opens 300 gate of Mercy. It is the night of seeking pardon and repenting to Almighty Allah, remembering our past sins and sincerely settling the mind that one will never commits sins in the future. All the deeds that are against Shari’ah must be totally avoided so that our Dua and Istaghfar, hopefully, will be accepted.

On this night RasulAllahSAW made the following dua:

‘O Allah! I seek refuge in Your forgiveness from Your punishment, and I seek refuge in Your pleasure from Your annoyance, and I seek Your refuge from Yourself I cannot praise You in the manner that You deserve. You are exactly as You have defined Yourself9
