Celebrating Middle of Shaban by Ibn Baaz

Ibn Baaz’s article on celebrating Middle of Shaban.
Among the bid’ahs that have been invented by some people is celebrating the middle of Sha’baan (Laylat al-Nusf min Sha’baan), and singling out that day for fasting. There is no evidence (daleel) for that which can be regarded as reliable. Some da’eef (weak) ahaadeeth have been narrated concerning its virtues, but we cannot regard them as reliable. The reports which have been narrated concerning the virtues of prayer on this occasion are all
mawdoo’ (fabricated), as has been pointed out by many Scholars.
