The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Fasting In Sha3baan

عن أسامة بن زيد رضي الله عنهما قال : قلت يا رسول الله لم أرك تصوم من شهر من الشهور ما تصوم من شعبان ، فقال : ” ذاك شهر تغفل الناس فيه عنه ، بين رجب ورمضان ، وهو شهر ترفع فيه الأعمال إلى رب العالمين ، وأحب أن يرفع عملي وأنا صائم “ رواه النسائي ، أنظر صحيح الترغيب والترهيب ص 425

Usaamah ibn Zayd radi Allaahu 3Anhumaa said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, I do not see you fasting in any other month like you fast in Sha3baan.’

He said, “That is a month to which people do not pay attention, between Rajab and Ramadaan, and it is a month in which deeds are lifted up to the Lord of the Worlds. I like for my deeds to be lifted up when I am fasting.’” (1)

 عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ :  كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَصُومُ حَتَّى نَقُولَ لا يُفْطِرُ ، وَيُفْطِرُ حَتَّى نَقُولَ لا يَصُومُ ، فَمَا رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم اسْتَكْمَلَ صِيَامَ شَهْرٍ إِلا رَمَضَانَ ، وَمَا رَأَيْتُهُ أَكْثَرَ صِيَامًا مِنْهُ فِي شَعْبَانَ

3Aa’ishah radi Allaahu 3Anha  said: “The Messenger sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam used to fast until we thought he would never break his fast, and not fast until we thought he would never fast. I never saw the Messenger of Allaah fasting for an entire month except in Ramadaan, and I never saw him fast more than he did in Sha3baan.”(2)

كَانَ يَصُومُ شَعْبَانَ كُلَّهُ ، كَانَ يَصُومُ شَعْبَانَ إِلا قَلِيلاً

“He used to fast all of Sha3baan, he used to fast all but a little of Sha3baan. (3)
