Assalam o alikum all,

According to Majority of Scolars of Islam celebrating 15th Shabaan is bidah (new invention in islam n has not been preached by our Prophet peach be upon him). The ahadith regarding 15th Shabaan are either maudu(self invented) or zaeef (can't be verified coz of broken chain of narrators)  there is also a fatwa  given by Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah ibn Baz also known as Ibn Baz, was the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia till his death in 1999
For Ref his book

For complete introduction of  of Abdul Aziz ibn Abdullah ibn Baz

The following is a reply from IRF(DR. Zakir Group) on my email by sending a mail on , this is just a message, i am not asking any one to leave it. After reading it depends upon you if you want to practice it or not. I am just conveying a message as its our duty to tell the right info.
Thanks for considering.

As-Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu.

I pray to Allah (swt) for your health, happiness and vigor in Islamic spirits. Aameen.

Giving significance to the night of 15th Sha'ban, visiting graveyards, doing extra Ibaadah (worship) and offering extra Nawaafil Salaah with the intention of specifically doing so on the occasion of 15th Sha'ban, having illuminations, considering it to be the Eid of the dead and keeping awake for the whole night of 15th Sha'ban and encouraging others to do the same -- all these are Bid'ah (innovation) . The prophet and the Sahaabah never did so nor commanded the muslims to do so.
We don't find any evidence of such things in the entire authentic Seerah of the Prophet and his companions. According to Allamah Ibn Rajab Abu Bakr Turtoshi, Ibn Wazzah Qurtubi, Suyuti, Shokani etc. all the Ahadith pertaining to the subject are weak and unacceptable.
The Hadith that is generally quoted to support the practices done on the night of 15th Sha'ban is Zaif (weak) according to Muhaddiseen (the scholars of Ahadith) and is not to be put into practice.
Narrated Aisha (R.A.),
I missed Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) during the night and found him in al-Baqi'. He said: Were you afraid that Allah and His Messenger would deal unjustly with you? I said: Allah's Messenger , I thought that you had gone to some of your other wives. He (the prophet) said: Verily Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, comes down to the heaven of the world in the middle night of Sha'ban and forgives sins even more abundant than the hair of the goats of Kalb. (Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 739; Sunan Ibn-I-Majah, Hadith No. 1389; Ahmad Vol. 6, 238)
According to Imam Bukhari and Tirmidhi, the above mentioned Hadith has a broken chain of narrators in two places, and therefore it is weak. Allamah Ibnul Arabi (543H), in his commentary of Sunan -At-Tirmidhi, titled 'Arizatul-Ahwazi', Vol 3, Pg No. 216 adds: '...further, in it Hajjaj Ibn Artaat is not reliable.'
Allamah Ibnul Arabi writes: "There is no reliable Hadith regarding the 15th of Sha'ban.
Although certain commentators insist that the verse from Surah Dukhan, chapter 44, verse 4: 'In that (night) is made distinct every affair of wisdom', refer to 15th of Sha'ban, but this is not true, as Allah did not reveal the Qur'an in Sha'ban. The Qur'an was revealed in Ramadan, as mentioned in Surah Baqarah, chapter 2, verse 185, and this can only be statement of a person who transgresses the book of Allah (swt) and is careless of his word". (Arizatul Ahwazi, Vol. 3, Page No. 217)
According to Hadith of Sahih Muslim, Vol. 2, Hadith No. 1885: ".. Most evil affairs are their innovations, and every innovation is an error..."
So Muslims should beware of and steer clear of all innovation and bid'ah.

May Allah (swt) shower His Choicest Blessings on the entire Muslim Ummah and help us in our mission of bearing witness to the truth of Islam before all mankind. Aameen

With regards and salaams from all of us at IRF. Jazakallahu Khairan and Was Salaam,

Yours in the Service of Islam,
