The virtues of the month of Sha’ban

The month of Sha’ban is known as the month of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and is a bridge between the blessed months of Rajab and Ramadan.  Unfortunately, many of us neglect it, despite its great importance.  In this seminar, we will learn about the immense blessings and significance of Sha’ban, as well as the best acts of worship one can do during this month.
