Usamah ibn Zayd (may Allah be pleased with him) said," I asked the messenger of Allah a
question. I asked why do you fast in Sha'ban more than any other month? He (peace and
blessings be upon him) replied saying; People are negligent between Rajab and Ramadan. During
Shı baan the deeds are presented to the Lord of all the worlds. Therefore I desire to be fasting
when my deeds are lifted."
Collected by Ahmed ( 5/200) , An-Nisaıi (2357), Al-Bayhaqee in Shıb Al-Eman (3820) and Ibn
Abee Shaybah in his Musanaf (9765). Shaykh Al-Albani (may Allah rest him in Jannah) and
Muhammad Adam (may Allah preserve him)both graded this hadeeth as Hasan

Nisa'i written by Muhammad Adam Al-Ethopia. [Vol 21 page 266-268.] Shaykh Muhammad
** (Usamah ibn Zayd ) ibn Haaratha ibn Sharaheel Al-Kalbee. He died in Madinah in 54
Hijrah. He was 75 years old at the time of his death.
** (negligent between Rajab and Ramadan.)Means and Allah knows best- The people used to
perform extra worship during those two months, and during Shaıban they were lax.
** (During Sha' baan the deeds are lifted to the lord of all the worlds.) Good deeds should be
performed during Shaıban. One of the best deeds is fasting.
(Therefore I desire to be fasting when my deeds are lifted.) As-Shaykh Walideen (may Allah have
mercy upon him) said," If you ask, What does this mean? It is written in Bukhari and Muslim that
the deeds of the servant for the night are lifted to Allah before the day. And the deeds for the
day are lifted before the night?
I say there are two possible answers for this question:
1. The deeds of the servant are displayed to Allah daily. The weekly deeds are presented to
Allah on Mondays and Thursdays. The yearly deeds are presented to Allah in Sha'ban. Hence
deeds are presented to The Most Merciful one after the other. There is wisdom behind deeds
being presented to Allah in this fashion; whoever wants to ponder over this can. And if Allah
wills the servant will understand why this happens; otherwise he won't. And the wisdom will
remain with Allah. Allah sees, hears and knows everything.
2. Daily deeds are presented to The All-Knowing daily in detail and weekly deeds are
presented in general to Allah. And Allah knows best.

Asalamu alykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu
I wanted to ask, is this hadeeth saheeh:
bu Musa Al-Asharıee (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allahıs messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said, ıVerily Allah looks at His creation on the 15th of Shaıban and forgives everyone except a person who commits shirk and a person feels rancor towards his brother...?

Get Your Sins Forgiven on the 15th of Shaaban

Abu Musa Al-Asharıee (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that Allahıs messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) said, ıVerily Allah looks at His creation on the 15th of Shaıban and forgives everyone except a person who commits shirk and a person feels rancor towards his brother
Collect by Ibn Majah (1390) Ibn Abee Asim (510) and others .Graded as being Saheeh by Shaykh Al-Albani
Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this topic saying, ı My brothers you must avoid the sins that prevent the servant from receiving Allahıs forgiveness during the fixed dates of Allahıs mercy and pardon. They are as follow;
Shirk- Allah says,ı
ıııı ıııııııı ııııııııı ıııııı ııııııı ııııııı ıııııııı ıııııııııı ııııııııııı ıııııııı ۖ ııııı ıııııııııııııı ıııı ııııııııı
ıWhoever associates (others) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden to him the garden, and his abode is the fire; and there shall be no helpers for the unjust.[Al-Maıidah 72]
Murder ı If everyone in the Heavens and Earth gathered together and killed a Muslim unjustly Allah would throw them all in Hell.
Zina- Beware, think twice from being exposed to the Almightyıs wrath. The entire creation is Allahıs servants and slaves. Allah vies to protect them and there isnıt anyone who vies for this protection more than Allah. Allah doesnıt want His male and female slaves to commit zina. Therefore He has prohibited fornication and adultery and ordered His servants to lower their gaze.
Shahnaaı- This is when a person harbors ill will against his brother and wants to harm him. Allah says, ı
ııııı ııııııııııı ııııııı ıııııııı ıııııı ıııııııı ııııııııııııı ۚ ıııııııı ııııııııııııı ıııııııı ıııııııı ııııı ıııııııııı
ı And do not think Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do; He only respites them to a day on which the eyes shall be fixedly open," [ Ibrahim 42 ]
This is should spare you the harm, knowing these acts prevent forgiveness during the times of pardon for sin.ı
