The Night of Repentance : 15th Shaban - 'Laylat al-Baraah'' [A5] Booklet - 31 pages. by Dr Musharraf Hussain al-Azhari,Published by the Karimia Institute. Description :Shabaan is one of the meritorious months for which we find particular instructions in the Sunnah [tradition] of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him & grant him peace. It is reported in ahadith that the Prophet, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, used to fast most of the month in Shabaan. These fasts are supererogatory (nafl) and well deserving of reward, for Shabaan is the month immediately preceding the month of Ramadan. The burden of sins hardens the heart and this prevents one from worshipping Allah and from doing good works. Therefore to cleanse oneself from the filth of sin, it is necessary to repent so that one can taste the flavour of faith, worship and good works. This book will help us learn the significance and methods of repentance.
