Ahadiths about The Virtues of Shabaan :
The Prophet (s.a.w) mentioned in a Hadith: "Rajab is the month of Allah, Shaban is my month and Ramadan is the month of the Nation".
The blessed companion Usama ibn Zaid , reports that he asked Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) : "Messenger of Allah, I have seen you fasting in the month of Shaban so frequently that I have never seen you fasting in any other month." Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) , replied: "That (Shaban) is a month between Rajab and Ramadan which is neglected by many people. And it is a month in which an account of the deeds (of human beings) is presented before the Lord of the universe, so, I wish that my deeds be presented at a time when I am in a state of fasting."
Ummul Mu'mineen 'Aishah (r), says, "Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) , used to fast for most of Shaban. I said to him, 'Messenger of Allah, is Shaban your favorite month for fasting?' He said, 'In this month Allah (s.w.t) prescribes the list of the persons dying this year. Therefore, I like that my death comes when I am in a state of fasting.' "
The Night of Nisf (mid) Shabaan
Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reports that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said often in his Khutba (sermon): "O people! Lighten and cleanse your bodies by way of fasting during Shabaan, so that it shall be easy and helpful to you for the fast during Ramadaan. Whoso fasts for three days during Shabaan, all his past sins are wiped off". (Baihaqi) Fasting is also recommended on the 13th, 14th and 15th of Shabaan.
A Beautiful Dua To Read on 15th Night of Shabaan.
O Allah, Tireless Owner of Bounty. O Owner of Sublimity, Honor, Power, and Blessings.
There is no Allah except You, the Supporter of refugees and Neighbor of those who seek nearness, Protector of the fearful.
O Allah, if you have written in Your Book that I be abject, deprived, banished, and Ungenerous,
then erase O Allah, through Your bounty,
my misery, deprivation, banishment, and stinginess
and establish me with You as happy, provided with blessings,
for surely You have said-and Your Word is True-
in Your Revealed Book on the tongue of Your Messenger,
"Allah blots out or confirms what He pleases, and with Him is the Mother of Books."(13:39)
My God, by the Great Manifestation of the Night of the middle of the Noble Month of Sha'ban
"in which every affair of wisdom is made distinct and authorized,"(44:4)
remove from us calamities-those we know and those we do not know,
and Thou knows best-for surely You are the Most Mighty, the Most Generous.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and Companions.
Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds
