The white days of the month of safar

Dear brothers and sisters,

We would like to remind you of fasting the white days of the month Safar

 

Abu Tharr Al-Ghefari said: “The Messenger of Allah, salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam, said “O Abu Tharr! if you fast three days of every month, then fast the 13th, the 14th and the 15th “. – [at-Tirmithi; Sahih]

Abu Tharr Al-Ghefari said: “The Messenger of Allah, salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam, said “Whoever fasts from every month three days, it is like fasting the whole year ” – [Ibn Majah and at-Tirmithi]

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

All the months are created by Allah the Almighty and they belong to Him. Muslims should not be superstitious or be pessimistic about any month, day, or time. There is nothing in the sources of Shari`ah that prohibit getting married in the month of Safar, Muharram or any other month of the year.

This is a myth. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) advised us not to curse any time, because time has been created by Allah the Almighty and if we curse time, it is like cursing Him.

 

The rumor that some bad luck or evils happen in the month of Safar and Muharram is unfounded. When `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) was asked about whether it was true that marrying in the month of Safar would bring bad luck, she indicated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) married her in the month of Safar and she was the luckiest woman by marrying the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him)
