    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 535/535=L)

     

    Several traditions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) indicate the virtue of this night; therefore the scholars of Fiqh have mentioned that it is desirable to offer prayers in this night:

     ومن المندوبات ۔۔ احیاء لیلۃ العیدین والنصف من شعبان الخ (الدر المختار مع الشامی: 2/469)

    But, cooking good food and lighting candles on this occasion is nothing, it has no base in Islam.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
