3rd Shaban - Birth of Imam Husayn (as)
Verily, Rajab is Allah’s month, Sha’aban my month and Ramadan the month of my Ummah; whosoever fasts a day in the month of Rajab will be granted the great reward. [The Holy Prophet (pbuh)]
Rajab marks the beginning of the spiritual season of every believer ending with the end of the fasting month of Ramadan with the Eid Al Fitr. These three months are unmatched in their importance. Praise be to the Almighty and thanks to Him for granting us yet another opportunity to cleanse ourselves of our sins and oversights.
Fasting is one of the most recommended acts during this spiritual season. It is required of every Muslim to fast during the month of Ramadan, but is highly recommended during the months of Rajab and Sha’baan. As will be noted from the Hadith above and others to follow, fasting, be it for only one day during these months, is rewarded with untold bounties.
Birth of Imam Husayn (as)
O Allah: I beseech You in the name of the one born on this day, the one promised with martyrdom before the beginning of his life and before his birth, the heavens and all their inhabitants wept for him; and so did the earth and those living one it; before his feet stepped on it; the mourned slain one; and the master of the Family (of Prophet hood);
And the one who shall be backed with victory on the Day of Return;
And include us with those who submit to him totally,
O Allah: and (please) grant us on this day the best of grants;
We will insha-Allah celebrate the occasion at Islamic Centre of England on the 24th of June (7-8:30 PM) [at the library]. The speaker will be Sheikh Ahmed Haneef.
