01 Sha’ban 1433 | Hadith of the Day | On Fasting in the Month of Sha’ban


Â’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said:

“The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allâh be upon him) used to fast until we thought he would never break his fast, and not fast until we thought he would never fast. I never saw the Messenger of Allâh fasting for an entire month except in Ramadân, and I never saw him fast more than he did in Sha’bân.”

[Narrated by al-Bukhârî, Muslim]

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.”

Moon Sighting Report – Sha’ban 1433


Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

Today marks the 1st of Sha’ban 1433. There were positive moon sighting reports from Morocco and South Africa last night and therefore the month of Sha’ban has now commenced.

May Allah grant us a long enough life span to meet the month of Ramadan with open arms insha Allah.
