Night Of Eid-ul-Adh'haa

The nights of both Eid are described in the Hadeeth as amongst the great and sacred nights in the Muslim calendar. To remain awake on the nights of Eid and perform ibaadah is a source of great virtue and reward.

Abu Umaarah radi allahu anhu relates that Rasulullah peace be upon him said:

"Whoever stays awake and performs ibaadah (worship) on the night on the two Eid, with hope for abundant reward (from Allah subhanahu wata'ala), his heart will not die on the day (i.e. Qiyaamah) when all hearts will be dead.''


Mu'aaz Ibne Jabal radi allahu anhu relates that Rasulullah peace be upon him said:

"Jannat is waajib (incumbent) for those who stay awake with the intention of making ibaadah on the following nights: 8th, 9th and 10th of Zil Hijjah, the night of Eid-ul-Fitr and the night of the 15th of Sha'baan."


Imaam Shafa'ee said: du'aa are answered on the nights of Friday (the night between Thursday and Friday), the nights before the two Eid and the 15th night of Sha'baan.
