Shab-e-Barat 2021: Date, Significance and Facts about this Holy Night

Shab e barat 2023: Lailatul Barat is a two-day parade held by the Islamic community that will take place this year on March 7 and 8. The holiday is observed in the Islamic calender on the 14th and 15th nights of Sha’aban, the eighth month of the Islamic calendar. The holiday, also known as Shab-e-Barat, symbolises fortune and forgiveness. Muslims regard this night as a time of profession, as Allah determines people’s fortunes for the coming year and whether they will be able to conduct Hajj.


On Lailatul Barat, Muslims believe God descends from heaven and freely forgives sins. As a result, they spend the night praying and fasting until the next day. This month, Muslims are encouraged to fast for at least six days. Muhammad discouraged his companions from fasting before Sha’baan 15th because he was concerned about their bodily health.

Lailatul Barat takes place in the midst of Sha’ban, the month preceding Ramadan. The Islamic Calendar considers it to be the greatest night. On this night, at sunset, Allah appears in the nearest heaven and declares, “Is and is no one seeking forgiveness that I may forgive him? Is there no one requesting that I give him provision? Is there no one in need that I could help? Isn’t there such and such?” As a result, the night begins at sundown on the 14th of Sha’ban and concludes at dawn on the 15th. Ladies who menstruated during Ramadan can make up for it this month.

The Islamic tradition recalls Muhammad, who had been prostrating in prayer for so long that his wife was concerned he would perish. She went to bed after making sure he wasn’t deceased and reassured her she lay in bed, reassured of his health. Muhammad explained to his wife that he was praying during a holy night when God forgives followers and frees countless people from hell.

Festivities, cooking, and keeping up all night in prayer are all part of the Lailatul Barat observances. Schools are closed so that young children can rest and recover. On this night, people in some parts of the globe visit graves and remember their ancestors. In addition to worshipping all night, Islamic customs require Muslims to fast on the 15th of Sha’ban.
