Amongst the significant features of the month of Sha‘ban is that it consists of a night which is termed in Sharia as “Laylatul-bara’a” (The night of freedom from Fire).

Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.”
