The day of doubt is the 30th day of Sha`ban. It is given that name because there is a doubt regarding the number of days of the month of Sha`ban; they may be 30 or 29. There are also some texts forbidding fasting the one or two days preceding Ramadan. In the hadith, "Do not precede the month of Ramadan with one or two days of fasting, unless it is the habit of any of you (i.e., the person is not specifying these days but ordinarily fasts on them and the few days before them)."
Assalamu-alaikum. My question relates to the holy month of Ramadan.
It is my understanding that due to the length of the Islamic year, Ramadan appears to happen about 10 days earlier every solar year. In all places on the Earth other than the equator, this means the time we must fast each day gets shorter or longer (as sometimes Ramadan falls in the summer, sometimes in the winter etc).
Are there any particular foods one should stop consuming the month before Ramadan?
When our bodies are healthier it is easier to digest fats, metabolize sugar, use nutrients we consume and eliminate toxins from our system.
Could you please clarify how does Islam care about youth? Pls. give an example from the Prophet’s life. In other words, how did Prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) care about youth?
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
What is the importance to get our bodies ready for Ramadan?
For most people, Ramadan means that your way of eating, sleeping and living will change dramatically.
Assalamu Alaikum Brother.
I am an Indian and I am going to marry on December. In India while wedding Muslims are following other religion customs. I would like to know what is the rules and regulation of Islamic marriage.
Now we are just a couple days before Sha`ban. Month of Sha'ban 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.
Sha`ban is our gateway to Ramadan and we must preparing our self in Sha'ban to welcome Ramadan.
