In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, "[Sha'aban] is a month to which people do not pay much attention, between Rajab and Ramadan. It is a month in which the deeds are taken up to the Lord of the worlds, and I like that my deeds be taken up when I am fasting.” (Sunan Al-Nisai)
The month of Ramadan is undoubtedly the most eagerly awaited time of the year for Muslims, and many of us have already begun our countdown. But as we prepare ourselves for the holiest time on the Islamic calendar, we often neglect the many blessings of the month leading up to it - Sha'aban.
Join Yaqeen Founder & President Sh. Omar Suleiman as he sheds light on the treasure that is the month of Sha'aban, its virtues, and practical ways to make the most of the next 30 days.
