Shab-e-Barat is a Muslim holiday observed on the 15th night of Shaban(eighth month of the Islamic calendar). It is also referred to as Lailatul Barat, Laylatul Nisf Min Shaban, and Shab-e-Neema-e-Shaban. Muslims spend the night praying, supplicating, reciting Quran, congregating, and asking God for the forgiveness of their sins. During the day of 15th Shaban, Muslims normally observe fast from dawn to dusk.
Shab-e-Barat will be celebrated on the night that falls after the Maghrib prayer on Tuesday, 7 March 2023(15th Shaban).
Dates may vary according to moon sighting.
