Ahkam e Shaban o Shabe Baraat Tahqiq ke Ainey Main by Molana Mufti Muhammad Shoaib

Sha'aban (Arabic: شعبان) is the eighth month of the Islamic calendar.

This is the month of ‘separation’, so called because the pagan Arabs used to disperse in search of water.

On the fifteenth night of this month falls the Shab-i-Barat: ‘The Night of Records’; on this night the prophet Muhammad told his followers that Allah records all the deeds that the humans have to perform for the next year.

Mother of the believers, Sayidatuna A’isha (May Allah be pleased with her) says, I missed the Prophet (Swall Allau Alaihi Wasallam) one night so I went out to al-Baqi’ (graveyard, and found him). He said: “Were you afraid that Allah would wrong” I said: “O Messenger of Allah, I thought that you might have gone to visit one of your [other] wives.” He said: “Allah Glorious and Exalted descends to the nearest heaven on the night of mid-Shabaan (15th night) and He forgives more people than the number of hair on the hides of the flocks and herds of sheep of the tribe of Kalb. {Tirmidhi} 

It is recorded in books that the tribe of Kalb used to have the most number of sheep in Arabia, but some unfortunate people are still not forgiven on this night when Allah showers His mercy on mankind. Amongst them are 
1) those who are habitual drinkers [alcoholics] 
2) those who are habitual adulterous 
3) those who are disobedient to their parents 
4) those who break family ties 
5) those who are mischief-spreaders and, 
6) those who are back-bitters. 

In another narration mischief-spreader is replaced with those who make pictures. {Mukashifatul Quloob}. In other narrations those who practice magic, those who eat interest, those who lower their pants below their ankles with pride, those who start a fight between two Muslims, those who bear malice (have hatred for another Muslim) in their hearts without a lawful cause are also not forgiven on this blessed night unless they repent sincerely and also ask for forgiveness from fellow Muslims and make peace.
