We are in the blessed month of Sha’ban. The month of Ramadan－the beautiful manifestation of the Beauty (Jamal) of Allah ﷻ－is on the horizon. As Sha’ban leaves and Ramadan approaches, we pray that He ﷻcontinues to bless us with more and more awareness of the arrival of this blessed month; and receive it with the most open arms of our hearts and the most ready of minds. May Allah ﷻ help us be of those who are not deprived during Sha’ban. For he who is deprived of the gifts of this month, especially in the middle and the last ten days of it, is truly deprived.
