Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic used to attach special significance to the supplications narrated by the holy prophet of Islam and his infallible successor.

Imam Khomeini through his historic message in this regard once said as following:

The supplications of some of the months and days, especially those that pertain to the month of #Rajab,#Shaban and #Ramadan, strengthen the soul miraculously.

Of course not that I can understand such realities, but those who are familiar are aware of the effects of the supplications.

 These supplications open the way for the people. They are the search lights that enable the human being to come out of darkness and into light i.e. spiritual  purification .

You must pay attention to these supplications.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei describes an interesting memoirs in this regard as following:

I asked our magnanimous Imam (may God bestow paradise on him), "Out of the prayers which have been narrated by the Imams (a.s.), which one are you more interested in and more attached to? He said that he was more interested in Dua Kumayl and Dua Sha'baniyya: he was more interested in these two prayers. Imam used to worship God from the bottom of his heart. He was a man who relied on God, who engaged in supplication, who showed humility before God and established a close relationship with the Creator. In the eyes of Imam (r.a.), Dua Kumayl and Dua Sha'baniyyah were the best means for getting closer to God.

When one turns to these two prayers and pays careful attention, he sees how similar these two are. They have many similarities, and they reflect the prayers of those humble people who rely on God: "It looks as though I have stood before You while my reliance on You has overwhelmed me. You do what befits Your position and status, and You have covered me up with Your mercy.” 

In this dua, humble people hope for God's forgiveness, mercy, and attention, and they make lofty requests to God: "Dear God, bestow upon me perfection in separating myself from anyone except you, and enlighten our hearts with the light of seeing you.” The month of Sha'ban is such a month. Pure, enlightened, and young hearts should benefit from such an opportunity, and they should strengthen their relationship with God.
