Can we burn candles in shabe barat is it right in islam?


Giving significance to the night of 15th Sha'ban, visiting graveyards, doing extra Ibaadah (worship) and offering extra Nawaafil Salaah with the intention of specifically doing so on the occasion of 15th Sha'ban, having illuminations, considering it to be the Eid of the dead and keeping awake for the whole night of 15th Sha'ban and encouraging others to do the same -- all these are Bid'ah (innovation) . The prophet and the Sahaabah never did so nor commanded the muslims to do so. Thus the burning of candles on the 15th shaban is also bida or innovation, and innovations are the evil affairs,

The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error." SAHIH MUSLIM[Book 4: Hadith 1885]

If anyone introduces an innovation, he will be responsible for it. If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion), he is cursed by Allah, by His angels, and by all the people. ABU DAWUD[Book 39 : Hadith 4515]

so we should abstain from the things which are not done by messenger of Allah or companions of mohammad(pbuh) or commanded by Allah & his messenger(pbuh) as it is the solemn belief of every true believer who sincerely fears Allah and the Last Day, that there was, is, or never will be anyone in the annuls of creation who worshipped Allah more or better than the Noble Last and Final Messenger of Allah.
