The Month of Rajab..

قال أبو بكر البلخي:  مثل شهر رجب كالريح ، ومثل شعبان مثل الغيم ، ومثل رمضان مثل المطر ، ومن لم يزرع ويغرس في رجب ، ولم يسق في شعبان فكيف يريد أن يحصد في رمضان 

Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said: “The Month of Rajab is like wind, the Month of Shabaan is like clouds, and the Month of Ramadan is like the rain. Whoever doesn’t plant and sow in Rajab and doesn’t irrigate in Shabaan how are you going to expect plants in Ramadan? “

white days


I would like to remind you of fasting the white days as indicated below:

Sha’baan- 1435 Hijri, Ayyam al-Beed (White Days) will fall on:

Sha’baan 13th – Yawm al-Arb`aa – (Wednesday), June/11th 2014
Sha’baan 14th – Yawm al-Khamis – (Thursday), June/12th 2014
Sha’baan 15th – Yawm al-Juma’ah-(Friday), June/13th 2014


Abu Tharr Al-Ghefari (Radi Allaahu anhu’) said: “The Messenger of Allah, ﷺ, said “O Abu Tharr! if you fast three days of every month, then fast the 13th, the 14th and the 15th [these are call the al-ayaam al-beedh, the white days]“. [Ahmad, an-Nasaa’i and at-Tirmithi; Sahih]

Sha`baan is the month before Ramadan Sha`baan `Aa’isha (Radi Allaahu anha’) said: “I have never seen the Messenger of Allah, salla Allahu alaihi wa salam, completing the fast of a month as he did for Ramadhan, and I have never seen him fasting so much as he would in Sha`baan.” [al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Fasting in general and voluntary fasting in particular is a great worship of all time. Fasting is not restricted to Ramadhan, it is an act of worship that can be [and should be in some cases] performed at any time and at any place except when not recommended. Indeed, it is a worship that draws the believer closer to Allah and closer to perfection.

So my dear brother and sister ,fast an extremely hot day, to avoid an even hotter day .. and prepare yourself for a time when no food or water will be there.

Multiply your reward by reminding your friends

Specifying the day of the 15th of Sha’baan by fasting or reciting the Qur.aan or performing naafilah prayers

Question: We see some people specifying the 15th of Sha’baan with particular supplications and reciting the Qur.aan and performing naafilah prayers. So what is the correct position concerning this, and may Allaah reward you with good?

Response: That which is correct is that fasting the 15th of Sha’baan or specifying it with reciting (the Qur.aan) or making (particular) supplications has no basis. So the day of the 15th of Sha’baan is like any other 15th day of other months. So from that which is known is that it has been legislated for a person to fast the 13th, 14th and 15th of every month, however, Sha’baan is characterised unlike the other months in that (except for Ramadhaan) the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) used to fast more in Sha’baan than any other month. So he used to either fast all of Sha’baan or just a little. Therefore, as long as it does not cause difficulty for a person, it is befitting to increase in fasting during Sha’baan in adherence to the example of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam).

Standing the night of the 15th of Sha’baan in prayer and fasting during it’s day

Question: Is standing the night of the 15th of Sha’baan in prayer and fasting during it’s day legislated?

Response: Nothing firm and reliable has been established on the authority of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) that he stood in prayer in the night and fasted during the day of the 15th of Sha’baan. So the night of the 15th of Sha’baan is like any other night, and if someone is a regular worshipper during other nights, then he may stand the night in prayer on this night without assuming anything special (because of it being the night of the 15th of Sha’baan). This is because specifying a time for any act of worship requires a authentic proof, so if there is no authentic proof then the act is regarded as an innovation and all innovations are misguidance. Likewise, regarding specifically fasting during the 15th day of Sha’baan, then no (authentic) proof has been established on the authority of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) to indicate the legislation of fasting on that particular day.

As for that which is mentioned from the ahaadeeth regarding this subject, then all of it is weak as the people of knowledge have indicated. However, whoever has the habit of fasting the 13th, 14th and 15th (of every month), then he can continue and fast during Sha’baan as he fasts during the other months, without assuming anything special about the 15th of Sha’baan. Also, the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) used to increase in fasting during this month (Sha’baan), however, he did not particularise the 15th day, rather proceeded as per norm.

Giving sadaqah specifically on the night of 15th of Sha’baan

Question: When my father was alive, he entrusted me to give sadaqah (charity) according to my means on the 15th of Sha’baan every year, and likewise I have been doing this ever since. However, some people have admonished me for doing so saying it is not permissible. So is giving sadaqah on the night of the 15th of Sha’baan permissible according to the willment of my father or not? Kindly advise us and may Allaah reward you with good.

Response: To specify the giving of sadaqah on the night of the 15th of Sha’baan every year is an innovation, and despite your father having entrusted you with that, it is not permissible. It is befitting you give this sadaqah without specifying the night of the 15th of Sha’baan, rather do so every year and in whichever month, but without particularising any one month (on a consistent basis). However, it is permissible to do so in the month of Ramadhaan (for the evidence which indicates so).

And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

أَبِى مُوسَى الأَشْعَرِىِّ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قَالَ « إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيَطَّلِعُ فِى لَيْلَةِ النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَعْبَانَ فَيَغْفِرُ لِجَمِيعِ خَلْقِهِ إِلاَّ لِمُشْرِكٍ أَوْ مُشَاحِنٍ

Abu Musa Al-Ashar’ee (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allah’s messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Verily Allah looks at His creation on the 15th of Sha’ban and forgives everyone except a person who commits shirk and a person feels rancor towards his brother

[Collect by Ibn Majah (1390) Ibn Abee Asim (510) and others .Graded as being Saheeh by Shaykh Al-Albani]

*Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this topic saying, “ My brothers you must avoid the sins that prevent the servant from receiving Allah’s forgiveness during the fixed dates of Allah’s mercy and pardon. They are as follow;

Shirk– Allah says,”

مَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ ۖ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنْصَارٍ

Whoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be no helpers for the unjust.[Al-Ma’idah 72]

Murder – If everyone in the Heavens and Earth gathered together and killed a Muslim unjustly Allah would throw them all in Hell.

Zina– Beware, think twice from being exposed to the Almighty’s wrath. The entire creation is Allah’s servants and slaves. Allah vies to protect them and there isn’t anyone who vies for this protection more than Allah. Allah doesn’t want His male and female slaves to commit zina. Therefore He has prohibited fornication and adultery and ordered His servants to lower their gaze.


Shahnaa’– This is when a person harbors ill will against his brother and wants to harm him. Allah says, “

وَلاَ تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَا

“ And do not think Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them to a day on which the eyes shall be fixedly open,” [ Ibrahim 42 ]

This is should spare you the harm, knowing these acts prevent forgiveness during the times of pardon for sin.”

TN – Inshallah the 15th will Thursday August 6.

*PLEASE NOTE:The Authenticity of this hadeeth does not necessitate taking this night as an occasion to gather with the people and perform acts of innovation and celebration.



There is not any authentic evidence that supports making a special Du‘a’ or act of worship on the fifteenth night of Sha‘ban. So specifying it (the 15th night) for this is a Bid‘ah (innovation in religion), because the Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Every newly introduced matter is a Bid‘ah and every Bid‘ah is a Dalalah (deviation from what is right).” (via alIfta.com)
