One of the advices of Imam Mahdi (PBUH) to his followers is to pray for the acceleration of relief (Faraj) (the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH)), because this praying is the key for solution to the problems. (1) Based on the narrations from the Infallible Imams (PBUT) the night of the 15th of Sha’ban is one of the most excellent nights of the year. Moreover seeking forgiveness of Allah (SWT) and praying is specially recommended on this night. (2)
On the night of 15th of Sha’ban all the attention of the people is toward the occulted Imam as it is his birthday anniversary. So how beautiful it is to recite the prayer of Faraj (3) (relief) sincerely on this night, the prayer which is recommended on all days of the year. (4)
