Islamic Information Center: Nisfu Shaban and Its Virtues ~ Hi all readers! In the previous article I explained the virtues of the month of Shaban. There are many important things about that that we should know about. As I promised, in this article I will explain about Nisfu Shaban. Nisfu Shaban is the fifteenth day of Shaban. That day has a very great privilege when compared to ordinary days. Therefore, if you want to know about it, then you should read this article to the end!
As usual, before I explain further about Nisfu Shaban and its virtues, I will quote some of the hadiths that are specifically related to our discussion. Some of the hadiths I mean are as follows;
رُوِيَ : أَنَّ اللهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ يَنْزِلُ إِلَى سَمَاءِ الدُّنْيَا , فَيَغْفِرُ لِعِبَادِهِ إِلَّا الْمُشْرِكَ وَالْمُشَاحِنَ . رَوَاهُ ابْنُ مَاجَهْ ( 1390 ) عَنْ أَبِيْ مُوْسَى رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ
It is narrated, “That Allah, Azza wa Jalla, descended into the heavens of the world. He then spoke of all His servants, except the polytheists and those who were hostile to Muslim. ” The hadith is narrated by Ibn Majah (1390) Abu Musa radliyallahu anhu.
رُوِيَ عَنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : يَطَّلِعُ اللهُ إِلَى خَلْقِهِ لَيْلَةَ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ , فَيَغْفِرُ لَهُمْ , إِلَّا اثْنَيْنِ : مُشَاحِنٌ وَقَاتِلُ النَّفْسِ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا
It is narrated from Allah’s Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, “On the night of Nisfu Shaban, Allah saw all His servants. He then gave forgiveness to them except for two people; people who are hostile to Muslims and people who kill other people. ” The hadith was narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Umar radliyallahu anhuma.
رُوِيَ عَنْ رَسُوْلِ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ : خَمْسُ لَيَالِ لَا يُرَدُّ فِيْهِنَّ الدُّعَاءُ . فَذَكَرَ مِنْهُنَّ لَيْلَةَ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ
It is narrated from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he said, “There are five nights that prayer will not be rejected in those nights.” He mentioned balam Nisfu Shaban including those nights.

First; the three hadiths explain about Nisfu Shaban and its virtues. The main thing is, that Allah will forgive all his servants except the polytheists, those who are hostile to Muslims, and those who have killed others.
Second; Prayers at Nisfu Shaban will not be refused.
