15th of Sha’ban: The great debate

If this night is truly a blessed night then to dismiss it, is a great loss. However, if it does not hold any significance then to glorify it is an innovation and a deviation from the sunnah of the Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam). The Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said: “Anyone who introduces something into this matter of ours, which is not from it, will have it rejected.” (Bukhārī and Muslim)[1]
