وَ قَدْ وَرَدَ وَ أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِيهِ مِنَ الْإِحْسَانِ فَاجْعَلْهُ
You know its goodness better than we do.

اللَّهُمَّ هِلَالَ بَرَكَاتٍ وَ سَعَادَاتٍ كَامِلَةَ الْأَمَانِ وَ الْغُفْرَانِ وَ الرِّضْوَانِ وَ مَاحِيَةَ الْأَخْطَارِ فِي الْأَحْيَانِ

وَ الْأَزْمَانِ وَ حَامِيَةً مِنْ أَذَى أَهْلِ الْعِصْيَانِ وَ الْبُهْتَانِ

iv) 100 (one-hundred units) of prayers on the first night of the month of Sha’ban and in each unit he recites Sura Alhamd and Sura Qul huwala hu ahad once.
Once finished praying recite the Sura Hamd 50 fifty times.
The following is found narrated on the authority of the Prophet (MGB): "I swear by Him who rightfully appointed me to the Prophethood that whoever says this prayer and fasts as a servant, God the Sublime will fend off the evils of the residents of the heavens and the earth, the Evil Ones and kings from him. God would forgive seventy-thousand major sins, and remove the torture of the grave from him. Neither Munkar nor Nakir2 would not frighten him. He would be taken out of the grave with his face shining like the full moon. He would cross the Bridge like lightning and his Record of Deeds would be handed to his right hand.’ ”

Section 11 On the Nobility of Every Thursday in Sha’ban and Praying on That Day
This deed is reported amongst the deeds for the first of Sha’ban as it could coincide with a Thursday. Then you would have it available to perform. If the first of the month does not coincide with a Thursday, you should perform it on the first coming Thursday to be cautious and avoid negligence. We found the following highly honored narration on the deeds for the month of Sha’ban on the authority of our Master Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB), who narrated that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, "On every Thursday of the month of Sha’ban, the heavens are decorated and the angels say, ‘O God! Please forgive whoever fasts on this day and fulfill his supplications.’ Whoever says two units of prayers on it and in each unit says the Opening Chapter once, ‘Say: He is Allah, the One and Only’a hundred times, and bestows blessings upon Muhammad (MGB) a hundred times after he finishes his prayers, God would fulfill all his needs in this world and the Hereafter. Whoever fasts for one day during it, God would forbid the Hell-fire from touching his body.’ ”
We read the following in another narration on the authority of the Prophet (MGB): “God would grant anyone who fasts on the twenty-fifth day of Sha’ban to get some reward. God would fulfill twenty of his needs in this world and twenty of his needs for the Hereafter.”

Section 7 On Fasting One, Two or Three of Its Days
The following is narrated through a chain of documents on the authority of Ja’far As-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of God’s Prophet (MGB): “Sha’ban is my month and Ramadhan is the Honorable the Exalted God’s month. I shall intercede on behalf of whoever fasts one day during my month. God shall forgive all the past sins of whoever fasts for two days during my month. Whoever fasts three days during my month will be told to restart his deeds.” The following is narrated through a chain of documents to Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn Babuyih in his book Man La Yahzaruh Al-Faqih, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Hazm alAzudy, on the authority of Aba Abdullah As-Sadiq (MGB): “Paradise is a certainty for whoever fasts on the first day of Sha’ban. Everyday God would look upon whoever fasts two days of Sha’ban as long as he is in this world and in Paradise. Whoever fasts three days of it would visit God in His Throne in Paradise every day.” Perhaps what is meant by ‘God would visit him in His Throne in Paradise every day’ is that he shall be amongst the residents of God somewhere on the Throne where he could be called one of the pilgrims of God, just as God has established the Holy Ka’ba as His Sacred House and anyone who goes to visit there has indeed visited God
