Driving eastbound to my home at maghrib time just now I saw the moon hanging full and low, slightly orange in color, shining bright. Alhamdulillah, tonight is Nifs ul-Sha’ban, the middle of the month. Only two weeks left until Holy Ramadan. Tomorrow is a day RasulAllah often fasted, in a month he fasted much. Don’t make excuses, I tell myself; it’s good practice for Ramadan! More information on ibadaat in Sha’ban is available at Sunnah.org.
