Asslam O Alaikum! Sir, Please help me to clarify the concept of Shaba-e-Barat. I have try to clarify this concept that there is no concept of Shaba-e-Barat in Islam. In Pakistan many people believe in that day and they don't have any reference of Quran or hadith. Please tell me how to rectify their believe? Thank you

Virtues of the 15th night of Sha'ban which is also known as Shab e Bara'ath is recorded in Ahadees e Mubaraka narrated from more than ten Companions and there is no denial in the fact that righteous predecessors individually used to make more Ibadath in this night. However making arrangements in this night to have gatherings in Masjid, decorating Masjid with illuminations etc. are no where established, therefore it is necessary that the enquirer try to prohibit people from engaging in myths and extravaganzas in this night and not to refute the virtues of this night generally.
