Question:

What is the significance of
month of Sha’ban and can we
fast on 15th Sha’ban?

Fatwa:

All perfect praise be to Allah,
The Lord of the Worlds. I testify
that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad may Allah exalt his
mention is His slave and
Messenger.

The actions of people are
presented to Allah in the month
of Sha’ban so the Prophet
used to fast repeatedly in this
month. ‘Aa'ishah, may Allah be
pleased with her, said: "I never
saw the Messenger of Allah fast for a
complete month except for Ramadan,
and I never saw him do more fasting in
any month than he did in Sha’baan".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
Usaamah bin Zayd, may Allah be
pleased with him, reported: "I
said to the Prophet : O
Messenger of Allah! I did not
see you fasting in any month as
you do in the month of
Sha’ban". The Prophet said:
"People neglect this month which is
between Rajab and Ramadan, in this
month the actions of the people are
presented to Allah; so I like my deeds to
be presented while I am fasting". [Abu
Dawood and An-Nasaa'i]
As for fasting particularly the
fifteenth of Sha’ban this is not
proved through any sound
evidence.

There are some sayings of the
companions of the Prophet and
their successors, which indicate
the virtue of this night. But this
does not mean that there is any
special significance to the day
or that night. So, there is no
evidence proving that fasting
such a day is Sunnah nor is
there any evidence proving that
there are some specific prayers
to be performed at the fifteenth
night of Sha’ban.
Allah Knows best.
