The Sacred Month of Shaban

The scared Islamic month of Shaban


Asalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

The month of Shaban has started and normally people know very little about the significance and blessings of this month. Unfortunately many innovated rituals have been associated with this sacred month. We must know that only that form of Ibadaah will be accepted from us which was practiced and conveyed by Prophet Muhammad Sallellahu Alleihi Wassalam.

To know more about this sacred month, listen to this informative lecture by Ustazah Iffat Maqbool:

Phases of the Moon – Surah Baqarah V. 189

Surah Baqarah V.189: They ask you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) about the new moons. Say: These are signs to mark fixed periods of time for mankind and for the pilgrimage. It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness) that you enter the houses from the back but Al-Birr (is the quality of the one) who fears Allah. So enter houses through their proper doors, and fear Allah that you may be successful.
