The night between 14 and 15 Shaban, known, as ‘Shab-e-Bara’at’ is the night of blessings and glory.

Hazrat Imam Jafer-e-Sadiq (AS) reported that Imam Muhammad Baqir (AS) was asked about the merit and excellence of this night then Imam replied, “ It is one of those nights being bestowed with honour and dignity. In this holy night Allah grants His servants and forgives them with His graciousness, kindness and favour. So try to find out nearness to Allah. In fact this is that glorious night that Allah Almighty swore by Him ‘not to turn back any one empty handed.’

The honour of this night touches heights and elevation as in the same night at the time of seher (pre-dawn) Hazrat Saheb al Asr-e-Wazzaman - the 12th successor of Holy Prophet - was born in the year 255 A.H. in Samarah, Iraq.

There are many Aamal reported to be performed in this night - some of these are as under:

-To take bath;

-Cease to sleep and spend the night in ibadat, prayer, recitation of Holy Quran and istighfar as was the practice of Hazrat Imam Zain ul Abedeen (AS);

-To recite ziarat of Imam Hussain (A.S) which is the best amal of this night and a source of forgiveness of sins.

It is reported from Hazrat Imam Zain ul Abedeen (AS) that he who wants to shake hand with the souls of one lakh and 24 thousands prophets, should recite ziarat of Imam Hussain (A.S):

-To recite the following dua which is equal to the ziarat of Imam Saheb al Asr-e-Wazzaman:

-To recite dua-e-kumail;

-To recite hundred times:

Imam Baqir (AS) said he who recites this, will be pardoned and Allah will fulfill his all wishes of the world and hereafter.

-To offer 4-rakaat prayer with 2 Salams. In each rakat recite sura Ikhlaas hundred times after sura Hamd. Then after prayer recite:

-To recite 10-rakaat prayer with 5 Salams. In each rakat recite sura Ikhlaas ten times after sura Hamd. Then prostrate and recite following dua:

-To present Areeza-e-Hajaat in the bargah of Hazrat Saheb al Asr (ATF) at the time of pre-dawn.

15th of Shaban is the day of glory, honour, dignity and blessings as it is the Birth anniversary of Hazrat Imam-e-Zamana (Ajja lallahu farajahu). He is the Imam of our era and a hadith of Holy Prophet (PBUH &HP) goes:

‘One who dies without knowing the Imam of his time dies a death of ignorance (Jahalat).’

Hazrat Imam Mehdi, al-Qa’em, Saheb-al-Asr Wazzaman (ATF) is our Imam, Imam of our era and as the verse 71 of sura Bani Israel says:

“(Remember) the day (of Judgement) when we shall call every people with their Imam.”

We will be called and presented with our Imam on resurrection day.

His mother was Hazrat Narjis (AS). At the time of the martyrdom of his father Hazrat Imam Hassan Askari (AS) he was five years old.

The Imam has two disappearances: a short disappearance and the long disappearance.

The short disappearance was from the time of his birth until the death of the fourth deputy in year 329 hijri. The long disappearance began the year 329 hijri and is continuing until now, waiting for the command of Allah to appear, so he can bring peace and justice to earth as it is now filled with destruction and oppression.

The messenger of Allah Muhammad (PBUH & HP) said, “ If there was one day left for the world, Allah the Almighty will prolong that day so that my son, whose name is the same as mine, will arise. He will fill the world with justice and fairness as it was filled with oppression and tyranny.

During the period of Imam (AS)’s occultation, maraje uzzam have been referred to for the solution of worldly and religious problems. With the praise of Allah Maktab-e-Tashayyo has this honour that ‘darwaza-e-ijtehad’ is open in it.

Some aamal of this glorious day are:

-To wear new and fine dress;

-To keep fast;

-To recite ziarat of Hazrat Saheb al Asr (ATF);

-To pray for Imam’s haste appearance.

TNFJ has named this holy day as ‘Youm-e-Adl’, which is observed throughout the world including Pakistan with respect, zeal and enthusiasm. Mahafil, religious ceremonies and sacred jashans are held on this occasion.

Mukhtar Students Organization Pakistan (MSO) – the only representative body of students – arranges different programmes to pay rich tributes and present Areeza-e-Hajaat in the holy bargah of Imam al Asr (ATF). In this Connection the main ceremony is held under the arrangements of MSO at Rawal Lake in the capital city of Islamabad.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
