15th Shabaan - Aamal of Neema-e-Shabaan‏

The 15th of Shabaan is also known as Neema-e-Shabaan and it is also remembered as Shab-e-Barat among Muslims. It is a highly virtuous night during which our last Imam Mohammad Mehdi(atfs) was born. 15th of Shabaan 1429 A.H. is falling on the night between 17th and 18th of August in India, Pakistan and Thailand. Please re-confirm with your local Mosque/imambargah for the exact occurrence in your location. Special Aamal of 15th of Shabaan Imam Ali(a.s.) relates from the Prophet Mohammad(sawaw) that the 15th of Shabaan is a highly virtuous night and the believers should spend this night offering prayers and should observe fast on the following day. Verily during this night until dawn Allah(swt) inquires Malaik (angels) - is there anyone who repents his sins and I forgive him/her? Is there anyone who asks for increase in earnings (Rizk/Rozi) and I grant so. Imam Zain-al-Abideen(a.s.) said that if someone wishes to meet the souls of the One Hundred Twenty Four Thousand Prophets, he/she should recite the ziarat of Imam Hussain(a.s.) during this night . Since it is the night of the birth of Imam Zamana(a.s.), it is recommended to recite the ziarat of Imam Zamana(a.s.) as well. The following Aamal have been recommended by Masoomeen(a.s.) for this night: (1)    Take bath and put on clean clothes (2)    Keep vigil the night long in prayers till dawn. (3)    Recite Ziarat of Imam Hussain(a.s.) (4)    Recite Dua-e-Kumail (5)    Imam Mohammad Baqir(a.s.) said that whoever recites : 100 times "Subhan Allah", 100 times "Alhamd-o-lillah", 100 times "Allaho Akbar" and 100 times "La ilaha il-Allah" during this night, Allah(swt) will forgive his/her previous sins and will accept his/her prayers. (6) The following dua is equivalent to the Ziarat of Imam Zamana(a.s.) and is recommended to be recited during this night. ALLAHUMMA BIHAQQE LAILATINA HAZEHI WA MOULUDIHA WA HUJ-JATIKA WA MO-OODIHAL LATI QARANTA ILA FADLIHA FADLAN FA-TAMMAT KALIMATUKA SIDQAN WA ADLAN LA MUBAD-DIL BI-KALIMATIKA WA LA MOAQ-QIBA LI-AYATIKA NURU-KAL MUTA-AL-LIQU WA ZIYA-UKAL MUSHRIKU WAL ALAMUN-NOORU FI TAKHYA-ID-DAIJOORIL GHA-IBUL MASTOOR JAL-LA MAOLIDUHU WA KARUMA MUHTIDUHU WAL MALA-IKATU SHUH-HADUHU WAL LAHUY NASIRUHU WA MU-AI-YIDUHU IZA AANA MIAADUHU WAL MALA-IKATU AMDADUHU SAIFULLAHIL LAZI LA YANBU WA NOORUHUL LAZI LA YAKHBU WA ZUL HILMIL LAZI LA YASBU MADARUD DAHRI WA NAWAMISUL ASRI WA WULATUL AMRI WAL MUNAZ-ZALU ALAIHIMUZ ZIKRU WA MA YANZILU FI LAILATIL QADRI WA ASHABUL HASHRI WA AN NIASHRI TARAJIMATU WAH-YIHI WA WULATU AMRIHI WA NAHYIHI ALLA HUMMA FA SAL-LE ALA KHATIMIHIM WA QAA-IMIHIMUL MASTOORI AN AWALIMIHIM WA ADRIK BINA AY-YAMAHI WA ZAHOORAHU WA QIYAMAHU WAJ ALNA MIN ANSARIHI WAQRIN  SARANA BISARIHI WAKTUBNA FI AAWANIHI WA KHULASA-IHI WA AHYINA FI DAOLATIHI NA-IMEENA WA BISUHBATIHI GHANIMEENA WA BIHAQQIHI QAAIMEENA WA MINAS SOO-I SALIMEENA YA ARHAMAR RAHIMEENA WAL HAMDU LILLAHI RAB BIL AALAMEENA WA SALLE ALA MOHAMMADIN KHATAMIN NABEEYEENA WAL MURSALEENA WA ALA AHLI BAITIHIS SADIQEENA WA ITRATIHIN NATIQEENA WAL AN JAMEE AZ ZALIMEENA WAHKUM BAINANA WA BAINAHUM YA AHKAMAL HAKIMEEN (7) Imam Mohammad Baqir(a.s.) and Imam Jafer Sadiq(a.s.) used to pray a 4 Rakaat Namaz in this night. In each rakat recite : - 100 times Sura-e-Fatiha and - 100 times Sura-e-Akhlas (Qul-ho-Allah-ho-Ahad). After salam of the prayer, the following dua is to recited : ALLAHUMA INNI ILAIKA FAQEERUN WA MIN AZABIKA KHAYEFUN WA BIKA MUSTAJEERUN RABBI LA TUBADDIL ISMI WA LA TUGHAYYER JISMI RABBI LA TAJHAD BALAYI RABBI LA TUSHMIT BIYAL AADAYI AAOOZO BI-AFWIKA MIN IQABIKA WA AAOOZO BIREHMATEKA MIN AZABIKA WA AAOOZO BIRIZAKA MIN SAKHTIKA WA AAOOZO BIKA MINKA JALLA SANAAOKA ANTA KAMA ASNEITA ALA NAFSIKA WA FAUQA MA YAQOOLUL QAEELOONA FEEKA (8) It is also recommended to recite : 10 Rakaat prayer in sets of 2 Rakaat each. In each Rakat recite once Sura-e-Hamd and 10 times Sura-e-Qul-ho-Allah-ho-Ahad. After each 2 Rakat set offer Sajda and recite this Dua : `ALLAHUMMA LAKA SAJADA SAWADI WA KHAYALI WA BAYADI YA AZEEMA KULLE AZEEMIN IGHFIRLI ZAMBI-AL AZEEMA FA INNAHU LA YAGHFIRU-HU GHAIRUKA YA AZEEMO Best Dua during this night is "Dua-e-Kumail" and “Dua-e-Nudbaâ€. In addition, recite Quran and other virtuous duas as you deem necessary and ask for the forgiveness of past sins and the betterment of the future. Towards the end of the night, Momineen and Mominaat usually present their griefs, worries and desires to the last Imam Mohammad Mehdi(a.s.) called "AREEZA" which is in fact a letter to the Imam(a.s.). This letter is written with a lot of love and affection using Safron as ink and is traditionally wrapped up in flour or pure soil and sprinkled with scents (Itar) and is thrown in a river with the intention that it reaches our beloved Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.). (a) According to Imam Ali Ibn Moosa Ar Rizaa (AS) it is highly desirable to pray Namaaz of Jaafar-E-Tayyar tonight. (b) Imam Jaafar Ibn Muhammad As Saadiq (AS) has advised the faithfuls to pray 2 rakaat namaz tonight after the Ishaa prayers. In the first rakaat recite surah hamd and sureh Kaafiroon and in the second Rakaat recite sureh Al Fathihah and sureh Al Iklaas. After the salaam recite Tasbih of Fatima Zahra (SA) and then the following dua'a YAA MAN ILAYHI MALJAA-UL I'BAADI FIL MUHIMMATI WA ILAYHI YAFZA-U'L KHALQU FIL MULIMMAAT YAA A'ALIMAL JAHRI WAL KHAFIYYAAT WA YAA MAN LAA TAKHFAA A'LAYHI KHAWAAT'IRUL AWHAAMI WA TAS'ARRUFUL KHAT'ARAAT YAA RABBAL KHALAAYIQI WAL BARIYYAAT YAA MAN BI-YADIHI MALAKOOTUL ARZ"EENA WAS SAMAAWAAT ANTALLAAHU LAA ILAAHA ILAA ANTA AMUTTU ILAYKA BI-LAA ILAAHA ILLAA ANTA FA-YAA LAA ILAAHA ILLAA ANTAJ-A'LNEE FEE HAA;DIHIL LAYLATI MIMMAN NAZ'ARTA ILAYHI FA-RAH'MATIHU WA SAMIA'-TA DAA'AA-AHU FA-AJABTAHU WA A'LIMTAS-TIQAALATAHU FA-AQALTAHU WA TAJAAWAZTA A'N SAALIFI KHAT'EEE-ATIHI WA A'Z'EEMI JAEAARATIHI FAQADIS-TAJARTU BIKA MIN D'UNOOBEE WA LAJAATU ILAYKA FEE SATRI U'YOOBEE ALLAAHUMMA FAJUD A'LAYYA BI-KARAMIKA WA FAZ''LIKA WAH'-T'UT'KHAT'AAYAAYA BI-H'ILMIKA WA A'FWIKA WA TAGHAMMADNEE FEE HAAD'IHIL LAYLATI BI-SAABIGHI KARAAMATIKA WAJ-A'LNEE FEEHAA MIN AWALIYAAA-IKAL LAD'EENAJ-TABAYTAHUM LI-T'AA-A'TIKA WAKH-TARTAHUM LI-I'BAADATIKA WA JA-A'LTAHUM KHAALIS'TAKA WA S'AFWATAKA ALLAAHUMMAJ A'LNEE MIMMAN SA-A'DA JADDUHU WA TAWAFFARA MINAL KHAYRAATI H'AZ'Z'UHU WAJ-A'LNEE MIMMAN SALIMA FA-NA-I'MA WA FAAZA FA-GHANIMA WAK-FINEE SHARRA MAA ASLAFTU WAA'-S'IMNEE MINAL IZDIYAADI FEE MAA'-S'IYATIKA WA H'ABBIB ILAYYA T'AA-A'TAKA WA MAA YUQARRIBUNEE MINKA WA YUZLIFUNEE I'NDAKA SAYYIDEE ILAYKA YALJAA-UL HAARIBU WA MINKA YALTAMISUT'T'AALIBU WA A'LAA KARAMIKA YU-A'WWILUL MUSTAQEELUT TAA-IBU ADDABTA I'BAADAKA WA ANTA AKRAMUL AKRAMEEN WA AMARTA BIL A'FWI I'BAADAKA WA ANTAL GHAFOORUR RAH'EEM ALLAAHUMMA FALAA TAH'RIMNEE MAA RAJAWTU MIN KARAMIKA WA LAA TUWYASNEE MIN SAABIGHI NI-A'MIKA WA LAA TUKHAYYIBNEE MIN JAZEELI QISAMIKA FEE HAAD'IHIL LAYLATI LI-AHLI TA'AA-A'TIKA WAJ-A'LNEE FEE JUNNATIN MIN SHIRAARI BIRAYYATIKA RABBI IN LAM AKUN MIN AHLI D'AALIKA FA-ANTA AHLUL KARAMI WAL A'FWI WAL MAGHFIRATI WAJUD A'LAYYA BIMAA ASTAH'IQQUHU FAQAD H'ASUNA Z'ANNEE BIKA WA TAH'AQQAQA RAJAAA-EE LAKA WA A'LIQAT NAFSEE BIKARAMAKA FA ANTA ARH'AMUR RAAH'IMEEN WA AKRAMUL AKRAMEEN ALLAAHUMMA WAKH-S'US'NEE MIN KARAMIKA BI-JAZEELI QISAMIKA WA A-O'OD'U BI-A'FWIKA MIN U'QOOBATIKA WAGHFIR LIYAD'-D'ANBAL LAD'EE YAH'BISU A'LAYYAL KHULUQA WA YUZ''AYYIQU A'LAYYAR RIZQA H'ATTAA AQOOMA BI-S'AALIH'I RIZ''AAKA WA AN-A'MA BI-JAZEELI A'T'AAA-IKA WA AS-A'DA BI-SAABIGHI NAA'-MAAA-IKA FAQAD LUD'TU BI-H'ARAMIKA WA TA-A'RRAZ''TU LI-KARAMIKA WAS-TA-A'D'TU BI-AFWIKA MIN U'QOOBQTIKA WA BI-H'ILMIKA MIN GHAZ''ABIKA FAJUD BIMAA SA-ALTUKA WA ANIL MAL-TAMASTU MINKA AS-ALUKA BIKA LAA BI-SHAY-IN HUWA AA'-Z'AMU MINKA Then go into sajda and say YA RABB ( 20 times) YAA ALLAAH (7 times) LAAH'AWLA WA LAA QUWWATA ILLAA BILLAAH (7 times) MAA SHAAA-ALLAAH (10 times) ALLAAHUMMA S'ALLI A'LAA MUH'AMMADIN WA AALI MUH'AMMAD once (c) Shaykh Toosi (RA) and Kafami (RA) have advised the faithfuls to recitethe following Dua'a (this dua'a is also recited after Namaaz-e-Shifa) ILAAHEE TA-A'RRAZ''A LAKA FEE HAA'DAL LAYLIL MUTA-A'RRIZOONA WA QAS'AADAKAL QAAS'IDOONA WA AMMALA FAZ''LAKA WA MAA'-ROOFAKAT T'AALIBOON WA LAKA FEE HAA'DAL LAYLI NAFAH'AATUN WA JAWAA-IZU WA A'T'AAYAA WA MAWAAHIBU TAMUNNU BIHAA A'LAA MAN LAM TASBIQ LAHUL I'NAAYATU MINKA WA HAA ANAA D'AA U'BAYDUKAL FAQEERU ILAYKAL MOO-AMMILU FAZ''LAKA WA MAA'-ROOFAKA FA-IN KUNTA YAA MAWLAAYA TAFAZ''Z''ALTA FEE HAAD'IHIL LAYLATI A;LAA AH'ADIN MIN KHALQIKA WA U'DTA A'LAYHI BI-A'AA-IDATIN MIN A'T'FIKA FAS'ALLI A'LAA MUH'AMMADIN WA AALI MUH'AMMADINIT'TAYYIBEENAT'TAAHIREENAL FAAZ''ILEENA WAJUD A'LAYYA BIT'AWLIKA WA MAA'-ROOFIKA YAA RABBAL A'ALAMEEN WA S'ALLAALLAAHU A'LAA MUH'AMMADIN KHAATMIN NABIYYEEN WA AALIHIT'T'AAHIREEN WA EALLAMA TASLEEMAA INNAALLAAHA H'AMEEDUM MAJEED ALLAAHUMMA INNEE AD-O'O'KA KAMAA AMARTA FAS-TAJIB LEE KAMAA WA-A'DTA INNAKA LAA TUKHLIFUL MEE-A'AD (d)The Holy Prophet (SA) used to recite the following in sajdah tonight after the Tahajjud prayers (it can be recited tonight after praying a 10 Rakaat Namaaz in 5 sets of 2 Rakaat each;
