Sha`ban and Warming Up for Ramadan


Now we are in Sha`ban. It is the last chance before the blessed month of Ramadan. Sha`ban is a significant month in the sense that it paves the way for Ramadan. Wise people work hard on various acts of worship in Sha`ban so that they will get ready for the coming guest, Ramadan.As it is reported in the traditions, As-Salaf As-Salih (Arabic for: righteous predecessors) used to pray, “O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha`ban and grace us to witness Ramadan!” Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) also taught us through his own practical example that we must prepare to welcome Ramadan by fasting more days in Sha`ban. It can be compared to warming up before a rigorous exercise regimen.

What plans are there on your mind for warming up during Sha`ban in preparation for Ramadan? Have you rolled up your sleeves?
