In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Sāliḥ al-Fawzān (حفظه الله) was asked: “Is there anything confirmed [in the sunnah] concerning fasting in Shaʿbān? [And] what is the ruling on singling out the fifteenth day of that month every year to fast?”

The shaykh (حفظه الله) responded with the following: “Yes, the Prophet (ﷺ) use to fast in Shaʿbān, and he would fast the majority of it. Therefore, the sunnah is to fast and to increase [one’s] fasting in it.”
