Celebrating the Birth of Imam Hussein ibne Ali (a.s.)
The blessed month of Shabaan is filled with happiness for the followers of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family). It is in this month that we commemorate the birth of four towering personalities (three of whom are Imams), the first being the grandson of the Prophet (or as the Quran refers to him, the son of the Prophet) - Imam Hussein ibne Ali (peace be upon him). . .

Celebrating the Birth of Hazrat Abbas (a.s.)
How precise and careful the Imam was in choosing a life partner - he did not look for the most beautiful or the richest woman in Madinah - rather, the most fearing of Allah (swt) and from a spiritually rich family - thus hinting to us the importance of how to choose a spouse. . .

Celebrating the Birth of Imam Ali ibn Hussein Zainul Abideen (a.s.)
The Ornament of the Worshippers is one of the titles given to the Imam whose birth anniversary we commemorate in the month of Shabaan - an individual who also happens to be the 4th Imam. Of course, the person whom we are talking about is none other than Imam Ali ibnil Hussein Zainul Abideen (peace be upon him). . .

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 is a month in which sustenance for the Believers is increased and it is the month of performing deeds. . ."
