Idd al-Mab'ath: The Greatest Ever Day
Mab'ath, signifies resurgence and is the most important day on which the sun has ever shone. It is the resurgence of not just humanitarian values but the basic purpose of life and the goal towards which mankind is moving. Hence it is more significant than the creation of Adam and the start of the human race. . .


A Season for the Soul - Month of Sha'ban - Realising Hope
The Prophet has been quoted as saying, 'It (Sha'ban) is a distinguished month and it is my month...it is a month in which sustenance for the Believers is increased and it is the month of performing deeds. . .'


Imam Husain ibn 'Ali (peace be upon him)
On the third of Sha'ban in the year 4 A.H. the city of Medina witnessed the birth of a boy in the house of Lady Fatimah (PBUH) and Imam Ali (PBUH); he was later nicknamed the 'Master of Martyrs'. Imam Ali (PBUH) took his son to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP), as was the custom of respect, in order for a name to be chosen for his newborn son, just as he had done for his first son. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) named him 'Hussain' by the order of Allah (SWT). . .
