Welcome, Sha’ban!

welcome sha'ban

When the Messenger of Allah ﷺ was asked why he was fasting so much in Sha`ban, he replied: “It is a month that people neglect, between Rajab and Ramadan. It is a month in which actions are raised to the Lord of the Worlds and I love for my actions to be raised while I am fasting.”

Sha’ban means that Ramadan is right on our heels. Start the countdown toward a Green Ramadan.

Welcome, Rajab!

Is it Rajab already?! Only two months until Ramadan!

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ would venerate this month. When the month entered he would seek its blessings, saying:

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا في رَجَبٍ وَ شَعْبَانَ وَ بَلِّغْنا رَمَضَانَ

“O Allah bless us in Rajab and Sha`ban and enable us to reach Ramadan!”
