  1. Sha'aban

    Sha'aban is the eighth month of the Islamic calendar. This is the month of ‘separation’, so called because the pagan Arabs used to disperse in search of water. On the fifteenth night of this month falls the Shab-i-Barat: ‘The Night of Records’; some people think that on this night the Islamic prophet Muhammad told his followers that Allah records all the deeds that the humans have to perform for the next year.
