The month of Sha`ban is the eighth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, which has a special significance and a special night as well.
The Messenger in Sha`ban
Our Mother `Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) narrated that:
“The Messenger of Allah did not fast in any month of the year more than he did in Shaban. He used to fast all of Shaban.” (Al-Bukhari, Muslim, At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Nasa’i)
Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) reports that Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked:
“Which fast is the most meritorious after the fasts of Ramadan?”
“Fasts of Sha`ban in honor of Ramadan.” (At-Tirmidhi)
