The first day of the month of Shaban has been confirmed to be Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Holy Month of Sha'bān
This holy month is ascribed to the Holy Prophet (s) who used to observe fasting in it and connect it to the obligatory fasting of Ramadan. He (s) used to say, "Sha'bān is my month; hence, Paradise will be incumbently decided for one who observes fasting on one day of my month."

The Birth of Imam Hussein (as)
In the house of the Holy Prophet, a child who benefited humanity as if he was a Divine Impression reflecting the earth, was born on one of the nights of the month of Sha'ban. His father was Imam Ali, the best model of kindness towards his friends and the bravest against the enemies of Islam, and his mother was Lady Fatimah, the only daughter and child of the Holy Prophet, who had as universally acknowledged, inherited the qualities of her father. Imam Husayn, is the third Apostolic Imam. . .

Celebrating the Birth of Hazrat Abbas (a.s.)
How precise and careful the Imam was in choosing a life partner - he did not look for the most beautiful or the richest woman in Madinah - rather, the most fearing of Allah (swt) and from a spiritually rich family - thus hinting to us the importance of how to choose a spouse. . .  

Celebrating the Birth of Imam Ali ibn Hussein Zainul Abideen (a.s.)
The Ornament of the Worshippers is one of the titles given to the Imam whose birth anniversary we commemorate in the month of Shabaan - an individual who also happens to be the 4th Imam. Of course, the person whom we are talking about is none other than Imam Ali ibnil Hussein Zainul Abideen (peace be upon him). . .

Celebrating the Birth of Imam Mahdi (a.s.)
The middle of the month of Shabaan holds, after the birth of the Messenger of Allah, one of the most important commemorations for the Shia and indeed the entire world of the oppressed and downtrodden. It is on the 15 of the year 255 AH, that Allah brought in the world, the completion of His light which would, in the future, make Islam the dominant force over the entire globe - even if the disbelievers and polytheists detest it - Imam al-Hujjat ibnil Hasan al-Askari (may Allah hasten his return). . .
