Sha-Aban 2023 | 23 February to 24 March 2023

Sha-Aban is the eighth month of the Islamic calendar and it is the month which comes after Rajab. Sha-Aban 2023 starts from 23 February to 24 March 2023. Sha-Aban is the last lunar month before Ramadan. It is the month of "separation", so called because the pagan Arabs used to disperse in search of water.

The fifteenth night of this month is known as the Laylat al-Bara'at. However, observance of this day is disputed

Aisha (R), narrated that "(she) did not see Rasul fasting in any month more than in the month of Sha-aban," except Ramadan

Dua in the Sha-Aban month

اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِى رَجَبَ وَ شَعْبَانَ وَ بَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان

Allaahumma baarik lanaa fee rajaba wa sha,baana wa ballignaa ramaDHaan

O Allaah, make the months of Rajab and Shabaan blessed for us, and let us reach the month of Ramadhaan.
