The Authenticity Of Laylatul Baraa’Ah

Recommended Posts

The 15th night of Sha’baan is known as Laylatul Baraa’ah or the Night of Emancipation.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has stated:

“Allah Ta'ala looks upon all His creation on the middle Night of Sha'baan and forgives them all, except the one who associates partners with Him or the one who has hatred in his heart (against a Muslim).” (Authenticated as Saheeh in Saheeh ibn Hibban)

There are those who cast doubts about the significance of this night. They would be wise to consider the words of Ibn Taymiya and Albaani, whom they consider as Imaams.

Ibn Taymiya writes in his Al-Fataawal Kubra, “As for the middle night of Sha’baan, indeed it holds virtue.”

Albaani when discussing the Ahadith regarding the 15th night of Sha’baan writes, “In essence, the Hadith, considering the different narrations, is Saheeh (rigorously authenticated) without any doubt.” He further says that those who deny the virtue of this night, then it is due to their haste in passing rulings and the absence of effort in researching the Ahadith. (Silsilatul Ahadithis Sahihah)

The 15th night of Sha’baan is indeed an auspicious night. It is a night of forgiveness and mercy. Let us be of those fortunate ones who maximise the benefits of this night and thereby welcome Ramadhan spiritually rejuvenated.

Exact quote from Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) about the Hadeeth:

 

Hadeeth:

 



5665 - أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُعَافَى الْعَابِدُ بِصَيْدَا، وَابْنُ قُتَيْبَةَ وَغَيْرُهُ، قَالُوا: حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ الْأَزْرَقُ، قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو خُلَيْدٍ عُتْبَةُ بْنُ حَمَّادٍ، عَنِ الْأَوْزَاعِيِّ، وَابْنِ ثَوْبَانَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مَكْحُولٍ، عَنْ مَالِكِ بْنِ يُخَامِرَ، عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «يَطْلُعُ اللَّهُ إِلَى خَلْقِهِ فِي لَيْلَةِ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ فَيَغْفِرُ لِجَمِيعِ خَلْقِهِ إِلَّا لِمُشْرِكٍ أَوْ مُشَاحِنٍ»

رقم طبعة با وزير = (5636) [تعليق الألباني] حسن - «التعليق الرغيب» (3/ 282 - 283) «الصحيحة» (1144).  [تعليق شعيب الأرنؤوط] حديث صحيح بشواهده

 

Declaration of Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) on the Hadeeth:

 

وتكلم الشيخ محمد ناصر الدين الألباني في صحيحه 3/135 139 عن هذه الأحاديث كلاماً محققاً مستفيضاً، صدره بقوله: “حديث صحيح روي عن جماعة من الصحابة من طرق مختلفة يشد بعضها بعضاً”. وأنهاه بقوله: “وجملة القول ان الحديث بمجموع هذه الطرق صحيح بلا ريب، والصحة تثبت بأقل منها عدداً، ما دامت سالمة من الضعف الشديد كما هو الشأن في هذا الحديث،

 


Declaration of Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (RA):

 

اماليلة النصف فقد روى فى فضلها أحاديث وآثار ونقل عن طائفة من السلف أنهم كانوا يصلون فيها فصلاة الرجل فيها وحده قد تقدمه فيه سلف وله فيه حجة فلا ينكر مثل هذا - كتب ورسائل وفتاوى ابن تيمية في الفقه ج: 23 ص: 132
