The 15th Night of Sha’ban – Shaykh bin Baz
The Noble Shaykh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz (رحمه الله) was asked:
“Has anything been mentioned regarding the virtue of the 15th night of Sha’ban, as I’ve heard speech accredited to the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) stating:
‘Fast in it’s day and stand in it’s night.’
Is this hadeeth authentic ?”
He responded by saying:
“The hadeeth is not sound. All of the reports about the 15th of Sha’ban are weak and inauthentic. Nothing has been specified of prayer or fasting for this night, however, fasting during the 13th, 14th, and 15th days of Sha’ban as well as the remaining months is recommended. As far as designating the 15th day for fasting or the night for standing in prayer, all of this is inauthentic and there is no Saheeh hadeeth regarding it. All of the ahadeeth pertaining to it are weak and some are completely fabricated.”
