Today is the 15th of Sya'ban, also called Nisfu Sya'ban. This means there are 2 weeks left to Ramadan, the fasting month.
What do people do on Nisfu Sya'ban?
There are a few things that people do to welcome Nisfu Sya'ban. Because Nisfu Sya'ban marks the end of the diary recordings by Rakib and Atiq for the past one year and the year's diary is taken up to somewhere and kept, and a new diary is brought down, people do several things so that in Akhirat, the diaries each have a good ending and beginning.
Here are some of the things that people do after maghrib and before isya':
- Read Surah Yasin 3X
- Read doa
Here are some useful things to read whenever possible:
- Subhanallah, Walhamdulillah, Wa Laila Hailallah Wallahuakbar, La haulawala khuwata illa billah hil aliyil azim
- La ilaha ilallah wahdahu la syarikalah, Lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyi wa yumitu wahu wa ala kulli syai ing qadir
- La ila ha ilallah
