Our Prophet (peace be upon him) set an example for the sincere worshipper of Allah, the one whom Allah sees where and when He (the Almighty) likes and misses him where and when He dislikes.
Usamah ibn Zaid said: “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do not see you fasting any month as much as Shaban.’ He said: ‘That is a month to which people do not pay much attention, between Rajab and Ramadan. It is a month in which the deeds are taken up to the Lord of the worlds, and I like that my deeds be taken up when I am fasting.”‘ (An-Nasaa’i)
The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated that the general majority of people do not give great attention to worship in the month of Shaban in spite of the fact that its significance is more enormous than numerous times during the year that people occupy themselves with more than with this blessed month.
