…a time of unimaginable numbers approaches…
how many Gates of Mercy will be flung open?
how many tears will fall as hearts repent?
how many tongues will be begging for forgiveness?
how many heads will prostrate throughout the night?
how many hands will be raised in gratitude to the Heavens?
how many salutations on our Beloved HabibuLlah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam will reach him in is Abode of Felicity, for it is said that this is when this verse was revealed:
Allah and His Angels bless the Prophet, so, you who believe, bless him too and give him greetings of peace. (33:56)
how many times will Allah Ta’ala multiply these salutations?
how many decrees will be written upon this night?
how many pens will be used by how many Angels to record who is to be taken back and who is to be born throughout the following year?
how many souls will read this Du’a that our Blessed Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam told our Lady Ayesha RadhiAllahu anha to read? and
how many will teach this Du’a to others as Jibreel Alaihis Salam taught it to Rasulullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam?
how many will sincerely take refuge and truly submit?
how many will be released from the horrors and torment of Jahannam?
how many eyes will be vigilant reading al-Qur’an al-Majeed?
how many will follow in our our Beloved Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam’s footsteps by visiting graveyards?
how many will lighten and cleanse their body by fasting?
how many recitations of Surah Yasin will be recorded?
how many will feel Allah Ta’ala’s presence as He descends to the lowest heaven from sunset till dawn, saying ”Will anyone ask, that his request may be granted?” ”Will anyone seek forgiveness, that he may be forgiven?”
how many zillions of Du’a will be answered during this time when all is accepted?
how many will be more attracted to following the Commands of Allah Ta’ala and the Sunnah of Al-Mustafa SallAllahu alaihi wasallam in favour of that which does not benefit on this majestic night of Nisf Sha’ban?
Insha’Allah we are all blessed with unimaginable numbers of rewards and increases in our Ajar and a nearness to our Rabb Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Habib SallAllahu alaihi wasallam during this Nisf Sha’ban, Ameen.
A previous Nisf Sha’ban post, another Du’a with transliteration and translation, and comprehensive advice with the virtues of Nisf Sha’ban by Sayyidi Shaykh Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ninowy, may Allah Ta’ala continue to bless his knowledge and shower him with Barakah, Ameen.

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
