Radiance on Ka’aba

Shab Baraat – The night of intercession
This night all affairs are decided.  The reward for worship is given to the fullest possible extent and countless blessings descend.  Many sinners are forgiven.

Apart from all this, one more reason for the superiority of this night is that in this night Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) promised His beloved Prophet that He will forgive His entire Ummah, as given in this Hadith in Ruh Al Bayan, Vol 8, Pg No: 449, Ruh Al Ma’ani, Vol 3, Vol 14, Pg No: 179, Haashiyatul Jamal, Vol 4, Pg No: 100, Haashitaus Sawi, Vol 4, 57:

Translation: It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Aisha Sididqua (May Allah SWT be well pleased with her): I saw the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) praying in Sajdah (prostration).  Hadhrat Jibrail (Peace be upon him) came and said: O Prophet of Allah! This night, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) has freed one-third of Your Ummah from the fire of hell through Your intercession. 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed some more.  Then Jibrail (Peace be upon him) came and said: Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) sends His Salaam to You and says: I have freed half of Your Ummah from the fire of Hell.  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed some more.  Jibrail (Peace be upon him) came and said: Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) has freed all Your Ummah from the fire of hell through Your intercession except that person from whom some person demands some rights until that person does not please the one who demands. 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed some more.  Jibrail (Peace be upon him) said: Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) has given His assurance that He will please those who demand rights with His grace and benevolence. 

It is mentioned in Ruh Al Bayan, Ruh Al Ma'ani, Haashiyatul Jamal, Haashiyatus Sawi and other books of Tafseer that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) prayed for the Ummah on 13th and 14th nights of Sha'aban and on the 15th night of Sha'aban, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) promised that He will forgive the entire of Ummah of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). 

These Hadith show the grace, benevolence and mercy which the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has for the Ummah that until the whole Ummah was forgiven, He (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) kept praying and this continued till dawn. 

The Lord Almighty kept on forgiving the Ummah until the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was pleased because this is what Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) wants.  Accordingly He says:

And soon will thy Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well-pleased.  Surah Adh-Dhuha (93:5)

It is given in a Hadith Qudsi:

Translation: All desire My pleasure and I desire Yours.   (Jawahirul Bihar)
