Supplication of the 15th Night of Sha'ban

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Indeed, it is the Divine Majesty who resurrect the dead to life and record what they have put forth and what they left behind, and all things We have enumerated in a clear register, the book of life. - The Quran 36:12

The full moon of this present lunar month is the 15th night of Sha'ban. Check you local moon phase here to be sure about when is this blessed night passing over you. In India the full moon night is celebrated as Gurupoornima, the full moon dedicated to the Guru or Master. Following is a supplication for the night of 15th Sha'ban. Apart from additional prayer and night vigil, it is recommended to recite Surah Ya-Sin, the 36th Chapter of the Quran.

"What good is it if you take your soul at hand, and present it [to God]? What use is it to take spice to India? How will this add any value, or price, or cultivation to what is there? Since there is such a Royal Court, He is now without need (bi-niyaz), so take your needfulness (niyaz) there. Since the one without need likes needfulness. Using that needfulness, you can suddenly leap out of the midst of all these creatures. Something from the Ancient One [God] will be joined to you, and that is love ('ishq). The trap of love has been set, and you are wrapped up in it, since "they love him" (yuhibbunahu) is the impression of "He loves them" (yuhibbuhum) " - Conversations of Shams Tabrizi

The Divine Voice says, "Come to Me with that which I Have not."
"What is it?" the theologians, the scholars ask and wander in confusion:
"What is it that God doesn't have!"
The lovers will tell you the secret:
"Go to the King of kings and present the poverty of your heart, go with your needfulness,
and take from the One Who's generous giving does not diminish an atom from His Kingdom.
So take your need to the Royal Court and become a beggar of His Generous Love
for He is the Sole Responder, al Mujib!, the Most Generous, al Karim!"
- Come to Me with that Which I Have not


O Allah! You shower favours on everyone
And no one can do any favour to You.
O The Possessor of Majesty and Honour,
O The Distributor of bounty and rewards,
There is no one worthy of worship, worthy of adoration except You.

You help the fallen, and provide refuge to the refugees
And give peace to those who are in distress.

O Allah! If in the Mother of All Books that is with You
You have written me down as someone who is
Doubtful of achieving salvation, or deprived,
Or rejected or without enough sustenance,
Then, O Allah, with Your Grace
Remove all of these misfortunes from me
and in the Mother of All Books that is with You,
establish me as someone who is blessed,
with abundant provision and charitable good deeds.

Indeed, what You said in The Book You sent
Through the tongue of Your Blessed Prophet is true
That Allah changes and establishes what He wants
And with Him is the Mother of All Books.

O My Lord! For the sake of Your Divine Manifestation
On this fifteenth night of the blessed month of Sha'ban
In which You issue all Wise and Irrevocable Decrees
Remove from us all calamities and hardships,
those that we know about as well as those that we don't,
while You know everything.
Truly, You are the Most Powerful, Most Generous.

And may Allah the Exalted shower blessings and peace on
His Holiness Muhammad, and on his family and his companions
And all praise is for Allah, Lord of the worlds.

Sha'ban is the 8th Month in the Islamic Lunar calendar. It is the month immediately preceding the month of Ramadhan. Therefore, some preparatory measures are suggested by the Holy Prophet through his oral instructions and his practice.

The blessed companion Anas reports that the Holy Prophet was asked,"Which fast is the most meritorious after the fasts of Ramadhan?" He replied, "Fasts of Sh`baan in honour of Ramadhan."

The blessed companion Usama ibn Zaid reports that he asked the Holy Prophet: "Messenger of Allah, I have seen you fasting in the month of Sh`baan so frequently that I have never seen you fasting in any other month." The Holy Prophet replied : "That (Sha`baan) is a month between Rajab and Ranadhan 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."
