Usamah ibn Zayd, may Allah be pleased with them both, said: “I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do not see you fasting in any other month like you fast in Sha'ban.’ He (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: ‘That is a month to which people do not pay attention, between Rajab and Ramadan, and it is a month in which deeds are lifted up to the Lord of the worlds. I like for my deeds to be lifted up when I am fasting.’” (Reported by an-Nasai, see Sahih al-Targhib wa’l-Tarhib, page 425).


The term ‘Jilbab’ (In Arabic جِلْبَاب) refers to any long and loose-fit outer garment worn by some Muslim women when going out in public or in front of non-Mahram men. It is designed to offer protection and it is part of the Muslim woman's identity.

The modern jilbab covers the entire body, fulfilling the Quranic requirements of covering and it can be a one-piece or two-pieces garment (with a skirt or abaya underneath), starting from the head with a headband, with or without sleeves and it can be worn along with niqab and gloves for ideal coverage.
