Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Jamia Binoria

guide me with detail answer with reference to hadith.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

Virtues of the fifteenth night of the month of Sha’aban which is also called customarily as Shab e Bara’ath are recorded in Narrations of Ahadees from almost ten Sahabas. Hence there is no harm if some more worship are done individually in this night in comparison to other nights. But, making arrangement for special gatherings in Mosques, decorating Mosques with illuminations etc, and taking measures to perform particular type of Salath are not found in the golden era famous for all the excellence, i.e., are not established in the era of Sahaba, Tabi’een or Tab’u Tabi’een. Therefore should refrain from such things.

Allah knows best.
