The Month Of Safar


“SAFAR” is the second month in the Islamic Calender. It is one of “Al-Ashhur-al-hurum” the four sanctified months in which the battle was prohibited in the days of Holy Prophet Muhammad   ( Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam). However, no specific mode of worship or other special rules are set by Shari’ah to observe in this month.
Some people believe that this month is an unlucky month, therefore, they avoid to hold marriage ceremonies or any happy gatherings in this month.This beleif is totally baseless and it is part of the superstitions rampant in the ignorants of arabia before the advent of Islam. The Holy Prophet Muhammad ( Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) eradicated all such superstitious beliefs. Specially in the case of the month of safar, He ( Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) expressly said,

لا سفر

(To Hold) the month of safar ( as unlucky) is nothing.

Therefore, Muslims should not give ear to such superstitions. There is no problem in holding Marriages in this month
