Ka'batullaah was assigned Qiblah for Ahl e Islam on 15th, 2 AH. On the same day Rasoolallah SAWS arranged marriage of his daughter M Faatemah az-Zahraa AS with M Ali Ameer ul-Mumineen AS.

What is this Mubaarak Night……

  1. Laylat un Nisf: The night that separates the month of Sha’baan into half i.e. 14 days before and 14 days after it.  14 denotes the ruhaani darajaat of Da’wat.  14 days for Tanzeel-the evident meaning of Shari’at and 14 days for the Ta’weel-hidden and esoteric meaning of Shari’at.  Mumineen offer 14 rak’ats washshek in which each surah is recited 14 times with aayat ul kursi.
  2. Laylat ul Bay’at: The night to give oath of loyalty to Allaah Ta’aala that a mumin will wholeheartedly follow the Tanzeel and Ta’weel of Shari’at at the hands of Da’iullaah il Ameen. He will never do anything which is against the rules of oath.
  3. Laylat o Tajdeed il ‘Aamaal: The night to make the accounts clear and renew it for the next year by preparing oneself for the prayers of Shahrullaah.  Tawbah and seeking pardon is the only way through which Allaah Ta’aala will forgive a mumin and make his daftar-e-‘aamaal new.  To give the way to purity one has to do efforts to free himself from the effects of filthy and unfair deeds.
  4. Laylat o Tahweel il Qiblah: The night when Ka’batullaah was decided by Allaah Ta’aala as the Qiblah of Islam, changing it from Bayt ul Maqdas.  Bayt ul Maqdas was the Qiblah of former ambiyaa that included Jews and Christians.  During the farz of Zohr the order came from Allaah to change it and make it the centre of Islam where Maulaana Ali (as) was born and all the Muslims should face it while offering prayer.
  5. Laylat o Tazweej e Ali ma’a Faatemah: The night of the marriage of Maulaana Ali (as) with Maulaatona Faatemah (as) on the mubaarak hands of Rasoolullaah (saws).  The holy nikaah-khwaani was held first in jannat in the presence of all Ambiyaa and malaa’ikah.  It proved to be the most revered marriage on this earth from which the holy imaams will continue to come and guide the people till the Last Day.
  6. Laylat un Noor: The night of Light which means the zaahiri-baatini aspect of Deen e Islam, where Zaahir is the Risaalat of Rasoolullaah (saws) and Baatin is the Wasaayat of Maulaana Ali (as).  Muminaat light their homes inside as well as outside with Shama’-daan and Mash’al (koriya) that should be in the multiple of 7.  This 7 is the number of imaams that will come in a group of 7 from Aal e Muhammad (as) till Qiyaamah.
