Sha`ban: Paving the Way for Ramadan (Folder)

Shaban Paving the Way for Ramadan
The month of Sha`ban is here . It is the month that escorts believers until they meet with an eagerly awaited guest — Ramadan. In Sha`ban, Muslims tend to warm up and start preparing for the yearly season of all sorts of goodness and divine grace.

`A'ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) "used to fast during Sha`ban, except a few days" (Muslim).

The month of Sha`ban also evokes a special occasion that distinguished the Muslim nation — the change of the Qiblah. Being directed toward Allah’s First House (the Ka`bah) is an honor for Muslims which should be appreciated.

So, Sha`ban is a blessed month that preludes the best month, Ramadan, during which comes a night that is better than a thousand months. Therefore, all Muslims are advised and invited to make best use of Sha`ban and prepare for Ramadan, the month of the Qur’an.
