HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

The Month of Shabaan is another great month in the life of a believer, closest to Ramadhan in the virtues and benefits it offers. Upon its arrival we must make thanks and shukr to Allah for accepting part of our Dua, “Allahuma barik Lana fee Rajab wa Shabaan wa ballighna Ramadhan… (O Allah grant us barakah in Rajab and Shabaan and allow us to reach (the blessings of) Ramadhan).” Then all we can do is wait for the second half of our Dua to be accepted as we wait for the arrival of Ramadhan. May we all live to taste the fruits of such a beautiful and sacred month. Ameen

With regards to fasting during the month of Shabaan, Sayyadatina Aisha (radhiallahu anha) narrates, “Rasullullah (salallahu alaihi wasalam) used to fast till we would say that he will never stop fasting and he would abandon fasting till we would say that he will never fast. I never saw Rasullullah (salallahu alaihi wasalam) fasting for a whole month except the month of Ramadhan and did not see him fasting in any month more than in the month of Shabaan.” (Bukhari, Muslim, Aboo Dawood & Nasai)

In another Hadith of Nasai it is mentioned that… “Rasullullah (salallahu alaihi wasalam) used to fast the whole month of Shabaan except for a few days.” When he was asked the reason for this, Nabi (salallahu alaihi wasalam) said, “It is a month which people (generally) neglect between Rajab and Ramadhan. It’s a month in which deeds are brought before the Lord of the worlds. Therefore I like my deeds to be raised whilst I am fasting.” (Nasai)

Whilst in one narration it says “Allah (Aza wajal) draws up a list of the persons who will die in the forthcoming year. Therefore I like that my death comes when I am in a state of fasting.” (Nasai) Allah (Subhanahu watala) alone knows if our name is written amongst those destined to leave the world this year and embark on the everlasting life of the hereafter. May we live until it is best for us, and die when death is best for us. May our lives be long so that our deeds are great and our scales are filled with a’maal-e-saalihah. Ameen. read more

A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easily. So, the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game. The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, saying that the game is a lot of fun… "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500," he says. This catches the senior's attention and, to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?" The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"

The lawyer uses his laptop to search all references he can find on the Net. He sends E-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up.

He wakes the senior and hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep. The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"

The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
