Fasting some of the month of Sha’baan in preparation for fasting Ramadaan. It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: The Prophet (pbuh) used to fast until we said: He will not break his fast, and he used not to fast until we said: He will not fast. And I never saw the Prophet (pbuh) complete a month of fasting except Ramadan, and I never saw him fast more in any month than in Sha’baan. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (1868) and Muslim (1156)
Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: From her keenness to do that in Sha’baan it may be understood that it is not permissible to delay making them up until another Ramadaan begins. Fath al-Baari (4/191).
We should avoid everything that could undermine our commitment to the Shahaadatayn. This means keeping away from bid'ah (innovations) and things that have been introduced into the religion. #IOURamadan
We should take stock of ourselves and recognize our shortcomings in doing acts of worship such as praying in congregation, remembering Allaah (dhikr), paying attention to the rights of neighbours, relatives and the Muslims, spreading the greeting of salaam, enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil, urging one another to follow the truth and be patient and steadfast in doing so, being patient in avoiding evil actions and in doing good deeds etc
