02 Sha’ban 1433 | Hadith of the Day | Deeds are presented to the Lord in Sha’ban

Usama ibn Zaid (May Allah be pleased with him) reports that:

He asked the Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace): “Messenger of Allah, I have seen you fasting in the month of Sha’ban so frequently that I have never seen you fasting in any other month.” The Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) replied: “That (Sha’ban) is a month between Rajab and Ramadan which is neglected by many people. And it is a month in which an account of the deeds (of human beings) is presented before the Lord of the universe, so, I wish that my deeds be presented at a time when I am in a state of fasting.”
