The 5th of Shaban marks the birth anniversary of Imam Ali ibn al-Hussain (p).

Imam Zayn al-Abidin (p) is reported to have said: 
“The looking of a believer at the face of his believing brother out of affection and love for him is an act of worship.”
[Al-Harrani, Tuhaf al-Uqul, p. 282]

روي عن الإمام علي بن الحسين زين العابدين (ع): 
“نَظَرُ المُؤمِنِ في وَجْهِ أخيهِ المُؤمنِ لِلمَوَدَّةِ وَ المَحَبَّةِ لَهُ عِبَادَة”
[الحرّاني، تحف العقول، ص ٢٨٢]
