✅Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): *“When Sha’baan is halfway through, do not fast.”*.Abu Dawood (3237); Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
Exceptions are:
1⃣ –One who habitually fasts e.g. Mondays & Thursdays, may do it even after halfway through Sha’baan. Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam): *“Do not anticipate Ramadaan by fasting one or two days before it, except a man who fasts regularly, who should observe his usual fast.”* Bukhaari.
2⃣– ‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah): *“Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to fast all of Sha’baan & fast all of Sha’baan except a little.”* Bukhaari.” The second phrase is an explanation of the first, pointing out that by “all” what is meant is *“most”.This indicates that it is permissible to fast after halfway through Sha’baan, but only for one who joins that to what came before the halfway point*.
3⃣ – One who is making up missed Ramadaan fasts. Al-Nawawi  said in al-Majmoo’ (6/399): Our companions  said: *it is not correct to fast on the “day of doubt” just before Ramadaan, and there is no difference of scholarly opinion on this point…But if a person fasts it to make up a missed day or to fulfill a vow, or as an expiation, that is acceptable, because if it is permissible to observe a voluntary fast on that day, it is more likely to be permissible to observe an obligatory fast… and if a person has to make up a day from Ramadaan, then he has to fast it, because the time left for him to make it up has become very short*.
❌There is no saheeh marfoo’ report that speaks of the virtue of the middle of Sha’baan.Some maqtoo’ reports (reports whose isnaads do not go back further than the Taabi’een) have been narrated from some of the Taabi’een, and there are some ahaadeeth, *the best of which are mawdoo’ (fabricated) or da’eef jiddan (very weak)*.If a person wants to *pray qiyaam on this night as he does on other nights – without doing anything extra or singling this night out for anything – then that is OK. The same applies if he fasts the day of the  15th of Sha’baan because it happens to be one of the ayyaam al-beed,(13,14,15) of the month, Monday or Thursday that he usually fasts*.So long as he is not seeking extra reward that has not been proven (in the saheeh texts). *One of the popular hadiths about virtues of  Sha’baan  that is very odd & extremely weak is this: “When Rajab began, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha‘baan, and let us reach Ramadan.” See proof of its weakness in this link*

🎆 *Some Muslims celebrate the middle of Sha‘baan, fasting on that day and spending that night in prayer (qiyaam)*. There is a hadeeth concerning that which is not saheeh, hence the scholars regarded celebrating this day as an innovation (bid ‘ah). *They observe a salah called  al-Salaat al-Alfiyyah, which is one hundred rak‘ahs in which Soorat al-Ikhlaas is recited ten times in each rak‘ah, offered in congregation.Some pray six rak‘ahs on the so called Laylat al-Nisf  with the intention of warding off calamity, having a long life and being independent of people, and reciting Ya-Seen and offering du‘aa’ in between that* — there is no doubt that this is something that has been introduced into the religion and is contrary to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). Al-Nawawi said: The prayers of Rajab & Sha‘baan are two reprehensible innovations. al-Sunan wa’l-Mubtada‘aat, p. 144  Laylat al-Nusf min Sha’baan (the 15th of Sha’baan) is like any other night, and there is no sound report from the Prophet  to indicate these.

5⃣Seeking knowledge in order to be able to follow the rulings on fasting
6⃣Hastening to complete any tasks that may distract the Muslim from doing acts of worship.
7⃣Sitting with one’s family members – wife and children – to tell them of the rulings on fasting and encourage the young ones to fast.
8⃣Preparing some  authentic  Islamic books which can be read at home or given to the imam of the mosque to read to the people during Ramadaan.
9⃣Fasting some of the month of Sha’baan in preparation for fasting Ramadaan. *‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah) said: The Messenger  (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) ……… And I never saw the Messenger  (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) complete a month of fasting except Ramadaan, and I never saw him fast more in any month than in Sha’baan. Bukhaari*.
Usaamah ibn Zayd said: I said: *O Messenger of Allaah, I do not see you fasting in any month as you fast in Sha’baan? He said: “That is a month that people neglect between Rajab and Ramadaan, but it is a month in which people’s deeds are taken up to the Lord of the Worlds and I would like my deeds to be taken up when I am fasting.” Saheeh al-Nasaa’i.*
1⃣0⃣Reading Qur’aan  Salamah ibn Kuhayl said: *It was said that Sha’baan was the month of the Qur’aan readers.When Sha’baan began, ‘Amr ibn Qays would close his shop and free his time for reading Qur’aan*.
🌹Abu Bakr al-Balkhi said: The month of Rajab is the month for planting, the month of Sha’baan is the month of irrigating the crops, and the month of Ramadaan is the month of harvesting the crops. He also said: The likeness of the month of Rajab is that of the wind, the likeness of Sha’baan is that of the clouds and the likeness of Ramadaan is that of the rain; whoever does not plant and sow in Rajab, and does not irrigate in Sha’baan, how can he reap in Ramadaan? This is how our Prophet and the early generations of the ummah were in this blessed month.

🌙Many people misunderstand the true nature of fasting, and they make it an occasion for eating & drinking, making special sweets and staying up late at night & watching shows on satellite TV. They make preparations  for  that long before Ramadhan, lest they miss out on some food or prices go up. They prepare by buying food, preparing drinks and looking at the satellite TV guide so they can choose which shows to follow and which to ignore. *They are truly unaware of the real nature of fasting in Ramadhan; they take worship and piety out of the month and make it just for their bellies & their eyes*. Others are aware of the real nature of fasting in the month of Ramadaan, so they start to prepare from Sha’baan, and some of them even start before that. *Among the best ways of preparing for the month of Ramadaan are:*
1⃣ *SINCERE REPENTANCE* This is obligatory at all times, but because of the approach of a great and blessed month, it is even more important  to hasten to repent from sins between you and your Lord, and between you and other people by giving them their rights, so that when the blessed month begins you may busy yourself with acts of worship with a clean heart and peace of mind. Allaah says :  “And all of you beg Allaah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful”. [24:31]  Al-Agharr ibn Yasaar (radiallahuanihu) ;Prophet  (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “O people, repent to Allaah for I repent to Him one hundred times each day.” Muslim.
It was narrated from some of the salaf that they used to pray to Allaah for six months that they would live until Ramadaan, then they would pray for five months afterwards that He would accept it from them. The Muslim should ask his Lord to let him live until Ramadaan with a strong religious commitment & good physical health, and he should ask Him to help him obey Him during the month, and ask Him to accept his good deeds from Him.
3⃣ *REJOICING  AT THE APPROACH OF THE BLESSED MONTH* The arrival of Ramadaan is one of the great blessings that Allaah bestows upon His Muslim slave, because Ramadaan is one of the occasions of good in which the gates of *Paradise are opened and the gates of Hell are closed. It is the month of the Qur’aan and of decisive battles in the history of our religion*. “Say: ‘In the Bounty of Allaah, and in His Mercy (i.e. Islam and the Qur’aan); —therein let them rejoice.’ That is better than what (the wealth) they amass” [10:58]
4⃣ *DISCHARGING THE DUTY OF ANY OUTSTANDING OBLIGATORY FASTS* Abu Salamah said: I heard ‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah) say: I would owe fasts from the previous Ramadaan and I would not be able to make them up except in Sha’baan. Bukhaari.  Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) said: From her keenness to do that in Sha’baan it may be understood that it is not permissible to delay making them up until another Ramadaan begins. Fath al-Baari (4/191).

❎There is no other festival in Islam apart from these three.All the festivals that have been invented apart from these are to be rejected.Once this is clear, then it is not permissible to show any of the signs of festivity on the celebration mentioned in the question, namely Mother’s Day.It is not permissible to show joy and happiness, or to offer gifts, and so on.The Muslim should feel proud of his religion and adhere to the limits set by Allaah & His Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in this religion, which Allaah has chosen for His slaves, and he should not add anything or take anything away. Allaah says : *“This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” [Q5:3]*
💪🏾A mother’s right is greater than having just one day in the year to be honoured, rather the mother’s right over her children is that they should take care of her and obey her, so long as it does not involve disobedience towards Allaah, at all times and in all places. Majmoo’ Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 2/301.The same shar’i ruling  applies to celebrating all innovated festivals irrespective of title given e.g. birthday of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam ), children’s birthdays, Tree Week & national holidays?
📖Allaah has mentioned kind treatment of parents alongside the command to worship Him alone. This is indicative of the importance of honouring one’s parents & treating them well.

mom 1
💡Allaah says : *“And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents” [Q17:23]* “Worship Allaah and join none with Him (in worship); & do good to parents” [Q 4:36].
Honouring one’s parents means obeying them, respecting them, praying for them, lowering one’s voice in their presence, smiling at them, lowering the wing of humility to them, not showing displeasure towards them, striving to serve them, fulfilling their wishes, consulting them, listening to what they say, not being stubborn towards them and respecting their friends both during their lifetime and after they have died.That also includes not travelling without their permission, not sitting in a place higher than theirs, not starting to eat before they do, and not showing preference to your wife or child over them.Honouring them also means visiting them, offering them gifts, thanking them for bringing you up and treating you kindly when you were small and after you grew up.
✅It also means striving to reduce the arguments between them, by offering sincere advice and reminding them as much as you can, and making excuses to the one who is wronged, and saying and doing things to calm them down.No matter how your parents  treat you, you should follow the good manners described above, so as to avoid everything that may make them  angry or upset, so long as that does not lead to sin or disobedience towards Allaah, because the rights of Allaah come before the rights of other parents & other people.

♻ ‘Eid (festival) is the name given to something which has specific time, & is used to describe gatherings which happen repeatedly, on a yearly, monthly or weekly basis including the actions & customs which are done on that day.Any of these things which are intended as routines or rituals or acts of worship aimed at drawing closer to Allaah or glorifying Him in order to earn reward, or which involve imitating the people of Jaahiliyyah  or any other groups of kufaar, is  prohibited  because it is  a bid’ah; an innovation  which comes under the general meaning of the hadeeth: *“Whoever innovates something  in this matter of ours (Islam) that is not part of it, will have it rejected.”(Bukhaari) e.g Mother’s Day,  national holidays, trees, workers day etc.*
💐Celebrating *Mother’s Day is an innovated* matter which the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) & his companions (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) did not do. *It is also an imitation of the kuffaar from whom we have been commanded to differ*.Hence, it is not permissible to celebrate it or to obey one’s mother in that, because the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: *“There is no obedience if it involves sin; obedience is only in that which is right and proper.”* Bukhaari.
The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: *“The worst of matters are those which are newly-invented, and every innovation is a going-astray.”* Muslim.Al-Nasaa’i’s report adds : “And every going astray will be in the Fire.”
👩👩👦 The mother is entitled to respect & honour, upholding of the ties of kinship throughout her life.

❓So, what is the point of singling out a particular day to honour her?. *Moreover, this innovation has come to us from societies in which disobedience towards parents is widespread, in which mothers and fathers can find no refuge except for the OLD AGE HOMES, where they are left alone and no one visits them, and they spend their time in pain and sorrow*.So, they think that honouring their mothers for one day will erase the sin of their disobedience towards her during the rest of the year.
💯 *We Muslims have been commanded to honour our parents & uphold the ties of kinship, we have been forbidden to disobey our parents*.In our religion, mothers have been given something which has not been given to them in any other religion; *the mother’s rights take precedence over those of the father.Abu Hurayrah (radiAllaahu ‘anhu) said: A man came to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, who is most deserving of my good company?” He said: “Your mother.” He said: “Then who?” He said: “Your mother.” He said: “Then who?” He said: “Your mother.” He said: “Then who?” He said: “Then your father.” Bukhari*
❌Honouring one’s mother does not come to an end even when she dies, for she is honoured in life and in death.Shaykh ‘Ali Mahfouz (rahimahullah) said, explaining how this celebration (Mother’s Day) is an imitation of the kuffaar.Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (radiAllaahu ‘anhu): Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “They will follow the ways of those who came before them, handspan by handspan, cubit by cubit, until even if they entered a lizard’s hole they will follow them.” We said: “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews & Christians?” He said: “Who else?” Bukhaari & Muslim.
🎓 *Shaykh Muhamamd ibn Saalih ibn ‘Uthaymeen (radiAllaahu ‘anhu ) was asked about celebrating Mother’s Day & he replied: *All celebrations which differ from the Eids prescribed in Islam are innovated festivals which were not known at the time of the righteous salaf, and may also have come from the non-Muslims, in which case as well as being an innovation (bid’ah) they are also an imitation of the enemies of Allaah*. The festivals which are prescribed in Islam are well known to the Muslims: they are Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, and the weekly “Eid” of Jumu’ah.

❓How can we expect all people to believe in *ONLY ONE TRUE, UNCREATED, NOT-BEGOTTEN & UNCRUCIFIABLE GOD Allah given their varying*- backgrounds, societies and cultures? For people to be responsible for worshipping Allah they all have to have access to knowledge of Allah. *The final revelation teaches that all mankind have the recognition of Allah imprinted on their souls, a part of their very nature with which they are created*.

In Quran 7:172-173; Allah explained that *when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam’s descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, ” Yes, we testify to It:’*
✅Allah then explained why He had all of mankind bear witness that He is their creator and only true God worthy of worship. He said, “That was In case you (mankind) should say on the day of Resurrection, *”Verily we were unaware of all this.” That is to say, we had no idea that You Allah, were our God. No one told us that we were only supposed to worship You alone*. Allah went on to explain That it was also In case you should say, “Certainly It was our ancestors who made partners (With Allah) and we are only their descendants; will You then destroy us for what those liars did?” Thus, every child is born with a natural belief in Allah and an inborn inclination to worship Him alone called in Arabic the “Fitrah”.
💛If the child were left alone, he would worship Allah in his own way, but all children are affected by those things around them, seen or unseen.

*The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, “I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray”*. Messenger of Allaah (saw) said: *“Every child is born in a state of fitrah (the natural state of sinlessness, submission, ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS , then his parents make him into a Jew or a Christian or a Magian.” (Agreed upon)*.

💜So, just as the child submits to the physical laws which Allah has put in nature, his soul also submits naturally to the fact that Allah is his Lord and Creator. But, his parents try to make him follow their own way and the child is not strong enough in the early stages of his life to resist or oppose the will of his parents.The religion which the child follows at this stage is one of custom and upbringing and Allah does not hold him to account or punish him for this religion until he is able to distinguish error from right if he willingly chooses not to. *Islam gives us time to grow up and be able to use our rationale and reason in order to choose a religion. This time is the age of puberty. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “There are three (persons) whose actions are not recorded: a sleeper till he awakes, a child till he reaches puberty, and a lunatic till he comes to reason”.(Abu dawud).*

When there is sin – whether a person has committed it or genetically inherited it, why can’t  this sin be erased through sincere repentance to the most loving & forgiving God? *Forgiveness of sins through the sinner’s repentance is what befits the kind and merciful God – not sacrifice by crucifixion & shedding of blood of god for God. As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities*.
👹In fact, the Paulins/Christians absurd believe already lead them into the greatest oppression & atrocity called idolatry (shirk). *This idolatrous atrocity is in the form of annual celebration of the Death of GOD. It is nothing but a Marriage of convenience between Paganism of the church TRINITY & ancient pagan “GODDESS OF FERTILITY ISHTAR” symbolised by bunny, eggs etc. that evolved to the Easter of today*. “ISHTAR”. . . a rebirth that is commemorated around the vernal equinox, historically a time of pagan celebration that coincides with the arrival of spring and symbolizes the arrival of light, awakening of life around us & increased fertility which is represented by the fertile animal, the bunny. Now, “EASTER” eggs, bunny, candy. *TAKE A STAND, DON’T PARTAKE IN PAGANISM*.
🤡This interwoven Christian paganism & ancient pagan traditions have been popularized by capitalist commercialization.Did You Know? Over 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made each year. It is inconceivable, ungodly, illogical & forbidden for any rational thinking human to celebrate the death & resurrection of God CALLED JESUS OR EASTER. *In fact, Imam as-Sarkhasi (rh) said: What they quote as evidence of reports from the Jews and Christians about the killing and crucifixion of the Messiah is an illusion.There are  irreconcilable differences between their Gospels, historians, regarding everything that has to do with the story of the crucifixion see details of  the fable of the CRUCIFIXION OR CRUCI”FICTION” of Christ* (peace be upon him) by tapping these links

📚The bible & the Qur’an talk about the creation of Adam & Eve (May peace be upon them) but there is a world of difference between their accounts. *For instance, the bible blames only eve while the Qur’an blame both of them. “We said: “O Adam! Dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden; and eat of the bountiful things therein as ye will; but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression.” [Q2:35]*. In the Bible, God is reported to have said that if they would eat from this tree, they would die. When they ate from the tree, they regretted what they had done, and sought forgiveness:
*“Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If you forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers” [Q7:23]*.
🔮The sin of Adam stemmed from desire, not from arrogance, hence Allah guided him to repent and He accepted that from him:
*“Then Adam received from his Lord Words. And his Lord pardoned him (accepted his repentance). Verily, He is the One who forgives (accepts repentance), the Most Merciful” [2:37]*.This is the *way for Adam and his descendants: whoever sins & repents sincerely, Allah will accept his repentance*. Making mistakes is a part of human nature. Prophet Muhammad (peace of Allah be upon him) said, *“Every son of Adam is bound to commit sins…” (al-Tirmidhi)* “…and the best of those who commit sins are those who repent.” .also [Q39:53].
*“And He it is who accepts repentance from His slaves, and forgives sins, and He knows what you do”*. [42:25. the ultimate forgiveness is an unconditional forgiveness.
*Forgiveness after a revenge is pointless*.For more authentic & divine details on the creation & journey of Adam to earth, tap this link

💡*So, the Islamic doctrine says  that the *ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS* of God to Adam & His descendants demands engaging in righteous deeds as a form of appreciation, hoping for a return to paradise as a reward & sincere repentance to God when we fall into sins now & then. *This cycle of internal struggle aimed at excellence in piety & suppression of evil continues till we are saved from Hell and admitted to paradise only by the Mercy of God*.Islam is a religion that *never teaches injustice & irrationality such as ORIGINAL SIN.Islam teaches that everyone is born pure and it is humans who corrupt themselves. So this is a lesson of ORIGINAL FORGIVENESS AND NOT ORIGINAL SIN*.God does not create us as sinners.He  creates us pure and then we commit sin and make ourselves impure. *The ultimate forgiveness is an unconditional forgiveness.  “And no bearer of burdens shall bear another’s burden…” [35:18]. This refutes totally the idea of original sin*.
🕹 *Salvation can only be attained through fulfilling commands/Laws, not just by irrationally believing that God died for our sins, so we are free to commit more* “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”. Mathew 5: 17-20.
*“And they say, ‘None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.’ Say, ‘Produce your proof if you are truthful.’”[2:111]*


Islam offers a guarantee to every sincere Muslim who obeys Allah and remains in this state of devotion until he dies, that he will definitely enter Paradise.  [4:122, 5:9]
🔦Islam also guarantees the disbeliever who ignores the commands of Allah that he will definitely enter Hell. *“This is Hell which you were promised! Burn therein this Day, for that you used to disbelieve!” [36:63-64], [9:68]*

So the believer keeps on striving, fearing and hoping, until he meets his Lord, believing in Tawheed (Divine Unity) and doing righteous deeds, and earns the pleasure of his Lord and Paradise. These are the right motives for action, and that righteousness cannot be achieved in this life in any other way.

Allah says “Whosoever does a righteous good deed, it is for (the benefit of) his own self; and whosoever does evil, it is against his own self. And your Lord is not at all unjust to (His) slaves”[Q 41:46] .“Every person is a pledge for what he has earned”.[Q 74:38].
