Benefit: From the Virtues of the Month of Shaʿbān

Written by Musa Shaleem Mohammed on . Posted in Brief Benefits

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

Usāmah ibn Zayd (رضي الله عنه) said: "I said: 'O messenger of Allāh, I never saw you fasting any month as much as Shaʿbān.' He (ﷺ) said: 'That is a month which the people have forgotten about. [It is] between Rajab and Ramaḍān [and] in it the deeds are taken up to the Lord of the worlds; therefore, I like that my deeds be taken up when I am fasting.'"

Reported by al-Nasāʾī, and Shaykh al-Albānī deemed it to be authentic.

Translator’s note: The Prophet (ﷺ), in this Ḥadīth, mentioned some virtues of this month; from them is that it was a month in which he (ﷺ) would increase his supererogatory fasts. Also, it is a month in which the deeds are taken up to Allāh.
