Question: The questioner says, tomorrow is the beginning of the month of Sha’baan. What are the good deeds legislated in this month, and is a good deed [done] in this month better than a good deed [done] in the sacred months (Muharram, Rajab, Dhul-Qi’dah and Dhul-Hijjah)?

Response: That which is legislated in the month of Sha’baan is fasting; voluntary fasting.

He ﷺ used to fast a lot in the month of Sha’baan – [so much so] that he would not fast [as much] in any other month, except that he would not fast the entire month [of Sha’baan].
