Dates of Lailat al Bara'a by year

What is Lailat al Bara'a?

Lailat al Bara'a (also called Mid-Sha'ban) is remembered by some Muslims, but for different reasons.

In the Shia view, Laylat ul Bara'ah is the date when Imam al-Mahdi was born. Shias believe him to be the twelfth, final and current Shia Imam and also the Mahdi, a very important Islamic figure who is believed by all Muslims to bring absolute justice to the world by establishing Islam as the global religion.

In the Sunni view Mid-Sha'ban is a night of worship and salvation, commemorating when Allah saved Noah followers from the deluge. Allah prepares the destiny for all people on Earth for the coming year. For this reason it is sometimes called the Night of Emancipation (Lailat ul Bara'at).
