Khutbah on Making the Most of Sha'bân

This khutbah (sermon) talks about the oncoming month of Sha'bân, and how and why we should make the most of it.

Some of the main points discussed:

  • Allâh has made some parts of the year more blessed than others, Sha'bân being one of these
  • Rasûlullâh SallAllâhu 'alayhi wasallam has said: "[Sha'bân] is a month to which people do not pay much attention, between Rajab and Ramadhân. It is a month in which the deeds are taken up to the Lord of the worlds, and I like that my deeds be taken up when I am fasting." [Ahmad, an-Nasâî]
  • Rasûlullâh SallAllâhu 'alayhi wasallam did not fast more in any month other than Ramadhân than he did in the month of Sha'bân [al-Bukhârî, Muslim]
  • Our pious predecessors used to welcome Sha'bân as a great opportunity to prepare for Ramadhân, increasing in their worship and refraining from sins
