The Month of Safar

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


Previously, people regarded this month of Safar as an unlucky month. Rasulullah established the Dien of Islam and put an end to such incorrect beliefs.

Unfortunately, this belief still lingers with many people. Undoubtedly, there are many days and months that are regarded as blessed in Islam, such as Jumu`ah, Ramadaan and various other occasions. However, we do not have an unlucky occasion in our Deen. It is against the grain of Imaan to believe in superstition, which is tantamount to Shirk.

For example: There are many people who are outwardly involved in various forms of Ibaadat yet they believe that if a cat meows at night, then news of someone’s death will reach them.

Life and death is totally in the hands of Allah Ta’ala. This is mentioned in various parts of the Qur’aan Sharief and Hadith. Allah Ta’ala is the Giver and Taker of life.
