“That (Shaban) is a month between Rajab and Ramadan, that is disregarded via many humans. And it’s far a month in which an account of the deeds (of people) is presented earlier than the Lord of the universe, so, I desire that my deeds be offered at a time after I am in a nation of fasting.”

2. Ummul Mu’mineen ‘Aishah (r), says, “Prophet Muhammad  , used to fast for maximum of Shaban. I stated to him, ‘Messenger of Allah, is Shaban your favored month for fasting?’ He stated, ‘In this month Allah prescribes the listing of the people death this 12 months.
