Spending the 15th of shabaan in the masjid

Question ID: 27015

Salaam Dear Mufti

On the night of 15 shabaan I noticed some musallees spending
the night in the masjid .These brothers brought their sleeping bags to
spend the night in the masjid.
I discussed this with a freind and I mentioned that this cannot
be correct, to specify one night to make itikaaf and sleep in the masjid.
I said that this could lead to biddah.
I even mentioned that this act is not proven from our pious predesessors
Im I correct in my thinking.

You are correct. Read article 'congregation on auspicious nights in Masjid' on our site.
Unfortunately such Bidaats are on the increase and driven by so called pious.
