When is Shab e Barat 2024 in USA? Shabe Barat 2024
Bismillahir Rahmani Rahim; In the light of the Quran and Hadith, I will briefly discuss Shab e Barat.
What is the meaning of the word Shabe Barat?
In Persian, the word shab means night or dew and the word Barat means fate. So the meaning of the word Shab is the candle of fortune. In Arabic, it is called Lailatul Baraat. Lailatul means night, and the word Barat means liberation, severance, to be set free, to be proved innocent, etc. Persian Shab e Barat or night of destiny Arabic Lailatul Baraat or night of liberation refers to the 8th month of the Arabic year ie the middle of the Shaban month.
Nowhere in the Quran and Hadith is the term Lailatul Baraat used. The use of this term is not known even in the era of Sahabi and Tabee’is. This night is called Lailatun Nisfi min Shaban or Mid-Shaban’s Night in Hadith. Long after the era of Sahabi Tabee’i, the custom of calling this night Lailatul Bara’at or the Night of Liberation arose.
This night is called Shab e Barat in Persian and night of destiny in English, but nowhere in the Quran and Hadith is it said that this night is Shaba Barat or night of destiny; That is, the idea that people have that fate is determined on this night is fabricated or false.
We know that terminology is broad, but it is better for the believer to always use the terminology used by the Qur’an, Sunnah, and Companions; Therefore, we will use the term Lailatun Nisfi min Shaban for this night, which means the middle night of Shaban in Bengali.
