May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)


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” [Ibnu Sunni] … (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) Read more

I can’t say I am blameless, sinless or pure
I can’t say I haven’t erred or will do so no more

I’m human, fallible and weak physically
But, I’ll try my best to better myself spiritually

Ya Allah! Guide me to your path, for it is true
And, In-shaa Allah! I’ll be redeemed when I return to you
