Shab-e-Barat (April 20-21)

Post by Raeja on Sun Jan 13, 2019 7:24 am

Shab-E-Barat falls in the month of Shaban, which is the 8th month in the Islamic calendar. Traditionally, this month is also called the month of Separation, as the Arabs used to leave their families and wander in search of Water. In Arabic language, Shab E Barat is known as Lailatul Bara'at, meaning the night of emancipation. The event falls in the 15th night of the month, and 14 or 15 days after, it is Ramadan. It is believed that Allah forgives the past sins and allows for a prosperous future for those who asks for it at this time with their prayers. The day is meant for fasting, while the night for prayers and celebrations. At this time, houses are decorated with candles and electric lights, while the skies are lit up with fireworks.
