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

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 is 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)

Before my son could start going on job interviews, he needed to dress the part. That, he decided, required a $500 suit.

"What!?" I answered, gagging at the price tag. "I've bought cars for $500!"

"That's why I want the $500 suit," he said. "So I don't have to drive $500 cars."
