    Default On Shaban and Ramadan

    ishah (ra) said: The Messenger (saws) used to fast until we thought he would never break his fast, and he would not fast until we thought he would never fast. I never saw the Messenger of Allah (saws) fasting for an entire month except in Ramadan, and I never saw him fast more than he did in Shabaan.
    Sahih Bukhari






    2. When Allahs Messenger (saws) was asked, why he fasted so abundantly in the month of Shabaan, he said: (Shabaan) is a month to which people do not pay attention, between Rajab and Ramadan, and it is a month in which deeds are lifted up to the Lord of the worlds. I like for my deeds to be lifted up when I am fasting.
    - an-Nisaee, see Saheeh al-Targheeb wal-Tarheeb, p. 425






    3. Abu Hurayrah (ra) reports from the Prophet (saws) thus: Do not pre-empt Ramadaan by one or two days, except for those who have the habit of fasting regularly, in which case they may fast.
    Sahih Bukhari






    4. Allahs Messenger (saws) said: On the 15th night of Shabaan, Allah, the Exalted, looks upon His slaves (with Mercy) and forgives everybody except the disbeliever and he, who holds malice for anybody.
    Bayhaqee, Ibn Hibban and Tabaranee






    5. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, Start fasting on seeing the crescent (of Ramadan), and give up fasting on seeing the crescent (of Shawwal), and if the sky is overcast (and you cannot see it), complete thirty days of Shaban.
    Sahih Bukhari






    6. Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet was the most generous amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel visited him, and Gabriel used to meet him on every night of Ramadan till the end of the month. The Prophet used to recite the Holy Quran to Gabriel, and when Gabriel met him, he used to be more generous than a fast wind (which causes rain and welfare).
    Sahih Bukhari






    7. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, Whoever does not give up forged speech and evil actions, Allah is not in need of his leaving his food and drink (i.e. Allah will not accept his fasting.)
    Sahih Bukhari






    8. Narrated Abu Huraira: Allahs Apostle said, Allah said, All the deeds of Adams sons (people) are for them, except fasting which is for Me, and I will give the reward for it. Fasting is a shield or protection from the fire and from committing sins. If one of you is fasting, he should avoid sexual relation with his wife and quarreling, and if somebody should fight or quarrel with him, he should say, I am fasting. By Him in Whose Hands my soul is The unpleasant smell coming out from the mouth of a fasting person is better in the sight of Allah than the smell of musk. There are two pleasures for the fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord; then he will be pleased because of his fasting.
    Sahih Bukhari






    9. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, Whoever fasted the month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith (i.e. belief) and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his past sins will be forgiven, and whoever stood for the prayers in the night of Qadr out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.
    Sahih Bukhari






    10. Narrated Abu Huraira: Allahs Apostle said, Whoever prayed at night the whole month of Ramadan out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven. Ibn Shihab (a sub-narrator) said, Allahs Apostle died and the people continued observing that (i.e. Nawafil offered individually, not in congregation), and it remained as it was during the Caliphate of Abu Bakr and in the early days of Umars Caliphate. Abdur Rahman bin Abdul Qari said, I went out in the company of Umar bin Al-Khattab one night in Ramadan to the mosque and found the people praying in different groups. A man praying alone or a man praying with a little group behind him. So, Umar said, In my opinion, I would better collect these (people) under the leadership of one Qari(Reciter) (i.e. let them pray in congregation!). So, he made up his mind to congregate them behind Ubai bin Kab. Then on another night, I went again in his company and the people were praying behind their reciter. On that, Umar remarked, What an excellent Bida (i.e. innovation in religion) this is; but the prayer which they do not perform, but sleep at its time is better than the one they are offering. He meant the prayer in the last part of the night. (In those days) people used to pray in the early part of the night.
    Sahih Bukhari






    11. Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: Allahs Apostle was on a journey and saw a crowd of people, and a man was being shaded (by them). He asked, What is the matter? They said, He (the man) is fasting. The Prophet said, It is not righteousness that you fast on a journey.
    Sahih Bukhari






    12. Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) journeyed during the month of Ramadan in a state of fasting till he reached Usfan. He then ordered a cup containing drinking water and he drank that openly so that the people might see it, and broke the fast (and did not resume it) till he reached Mecca. Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with him) said: Allahs Messenger (may peace be upon him) fasted and broke the fast, so he who wished fasted and he who wished to break it broke it.
    - Sahih Muslim






    13. Abu Atiyya reported: I and Misruq went to Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) and Masruq said to her: There are two persons among the Companions of Muhammad (may peace be upon him) none of whom abandons the good, but one of them hastens to observe sunset prayer and break the fast, and the other delays in observing the sunset prayer and in breaking the fast, whereupon she said: Who hastens to observe sunset prayer and break the fast? He said: It is Abdullah. Upon this she said: This is how the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used to do.
    Sahih Muslim
