The month of Sha^ban
The month of Sha^ban is the eighth month of the lunar year in the Islamic calendar and the month immediately preceding the month of Ramadan. For Muslims all around the world, the month of Sha^ban is a special time in which they try to do more good deeds than usual and fast more optional fasts than they do in other months. The Prophet used to fast a lot during this month. It is the habit of the Muslims to celebrate the 15th night of the month of Sha^ban by praying, reciting Qur'an, praising Allah, and making a great deal of supplication to Allah during that night.
Ibn Majah narrated that the Prophet said:
إذا كانت ليلةُ النصفِ من شعبانَ فقوموا ليلَها وصُوموا نهارها
which means: <<Spend the night preceding the 15th day of Sha^ban in acts of obedience, and fast the next day.>>
The great Imam Abu Hanifah An-Nu^man said in Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar:
The basis of Tawhid1 and what constitutes a valid belief is for one to say I believe in
Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, Resurrection after death, Destiny2
both good and evil and that it is created byAllah, the Settlement of Accounts on the
Day of Judgment, the Balance, Paradise and Hellfire. All are true matters.
Allah, the Exalted, is One not in the context of numbers but with the meaning that
He has no partners. Allah said in Surah Al-Ikhlas:
قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ
This means: Say (O Muhammad) He is Allah, the One clear of partners and anything similar.
And there is none, in any way, similar to Him. He does not resemble any of His creations,
Know that Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jama^ah are the majority of the Muslim nation. They are the people who rightfully followed the methodology of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ^alayhi wa-sallam. They include the companions and those who followed them in the essence of belief. They are the people referred to in the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah when he said what means:
<<Let the one who seeks the vastness of Paradise remain steadfast to the majority.>>
Sufism in Islam
Purity in dealings and following the footsteps of the Prophet
Praise be to Allah and may Allah increase the honor and raise the rank of our Master Muhammad sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam. Thereafter dear Muslims, Allah said in Surat al-Ahzab, 70-71:
يَآ أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءامَنُواْ اتَّقُوا اللهَ وَقُولُواْ قَوْلاً سَدِيدًا يُصْلِحْ لَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ
وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَمَن يُطِعْ اللهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا
These verses mean: “O you who believe, fear God and speak words of integrity, what is proper. [By doing so] Allah will rectify your deeds for you and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys God and His Messenger shall verily achieve a great success.
The astute Hanafi scholar and authority of Hadith Abu Hafs Najmuddin ^Umar Bin Ahmad Bin Luqman An-Nasafiyy (461AH-537AH) said:
The people of truth said: The realities of things exist firmly and knowing them—contrary to what the Sophist say is established.
The reasons of knowledge for the creations are three the sound senses, the truthful news and the mind. The senses are the hearing, the sight, the olfaction (smell), the taste and the touch. With each of these senses one encounters that which it was created for.
