Prayers (Nafl) for Shab-e-Baraat

Shab-e-Baraat (Laylatul Nifsul Shaban) is the night when Allah the Almighty arranges the affairs of the following year. It is a night of worship and prayers for all Muslims.

Nawafil for Shab-e-Baraat

1. Read 6 rakaat Nafl prayer (2+2+2), after Magrib. After each two, we read Surah Yaseen AND Surah Ikhlas 21 times. The intention for each Nafl is:
1. Dua for a long and prosperous life.
2. Dua for protection from calamity.
3. Dua for dependance on Allah alone, to the exclusion of His creations.

This special prayer, by the blessing of Allah Almighty, will give you a healthy and prosperous life for the coming year, Inshallah.


2. Read 12 rakaat nafl prayer, in each rakaat read:

  •  
    • Surah Fatiha (Alhamdo) : once
    • Surah Iklas: 10 times.

Afterwards read:

  •  
    • 3rd Kalima : 10 times
    • 4th Kalima : 10 times
    • Darood Sharif : 100 times

Third Kalima Tamjeed (Exaltation)

  

Fourth Kalima Tawheed (Oneness)


3. Read 8 rakaat nafl prayer with one salaam. In each rakaat read

  •  
    • Surah Fatiha : once
    • Surah Iklas : 11 times

Hazrat Fatima (May Allah be pleased with her) is reported to have said that whoever will observe this prayer, on Shab-e-Baraat and will present its reward (sawab) to my soul, I will strongly recommend for his/her forgiveness to Allah Almighty before I enter the heavens.


4. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) used to read this dua abundantly on this night, we should do the same:

Allahumma inni al-aloka afwa wal afiyata wal muafatad-daimata fid dunya wal akhirah 


5. Read 100 rakaat naflt prayer reciting in each rakaat reciting :

  •  
    • Surah Fatiha : Once
    • Surah Iklas : 10 times

The person observing this prayer on Shab-e-Baraat will have tremedous blessings from Allah Almighty and his/her prayers will be answered and will be made free from the fire of hell and will go to paradise.
