Rasulullah (SAW) addressed the gathering of muslimeen on the last day of the month of Shaaban:
“O muslimeen! A great and auspicious month is approaching you. There is a night in this month in which every act (of piety) is better than the same act performed repeatedly over a thousand months. He who seeks proximity unto Allah by performing a pious deed is like one who performs an act of farizat in other months. And he who performs a farizat in this month equals one who performs seventy acts of farizat in other months.
