Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'ala Rasulillah

As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu
"May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon You"

Alhamdulillah, we are into second Islamic month - Safar. Generally, people of sub-continent, take this month, especially , 13 days of safar as bad-omen. They don't start up good works be it inaugraton of bussiness, or weddings ----

Remember that our deen is Islam which guides us about each and every aspect of life. We only can find these guide lines in Quraan and Sunnah (the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad).

Get the truth about the month of Safar and know that there are no Superstitions, bad omens, unfortunate, Calamities, Prohibition of marriage related to this month.

Safar literally means whistling of winds.
This name was given because of the weather condition of that time.

What events took place in the history of month of Safar?

1: The Beloved daughter of Prophet Muhammad (saw) Fatima (R.A) married Ali (R.A) in this month.
2: Prophet Muhammad fell sick in the end of this month and died in the same sickness in the next month in 12th of Rabiul-Awwal.
3: Ghazwa-e- Khaiber (battle) took place in the same month.
4: Battle of Abwaa also took place in month of Safar.


What is the misconception about Safar?


Unlucky happenings such as Diseases, curses, evils, loss in business and all the misfortunes are relayed to that month. People try to apply many tricks to protect themselves from all the misfortunes, but this concept is nothing more than a misconception based upon the poor knowledge of Islam.

No Muslim should fell into these conceptions which had no foundations on truth.

What Prophet Muhammad guides us about Safar?

Prophet Muhammad said about Safar;“No adwaa [transmission of infectious disease
without the permission of Allah], no tiyarah [superstitious belief in bird omens], no haamah [refers to a Jaahili Arab tradition described variously as: a worm that infests the grave of a murder victim until he is avenged; an owl; or the bones of a dead person turned into a bird that could fly], and no Safar [the month of Safar was regarded as “unlucky” in the Jaahiliyyah].”

[Translators notes are in square brackets]. (Reported by al-Bukhari, 5757, and Muslim, 2220)



What does the companions of prophet Muhammad (sahabah) said about this month?

Jaabir (R.A) very clearly mentions about the superstitions and the wrong concept of Safar:

"I have heard the Prophet saying, the descending of illness and evil superstition befalling in the month of Safar is untrue." (Muslim)


What Quraan says about month of Safar?


Quraan explicitly rejects this concept of bad omen by saying;

And [for] every person We have imposed his fate upon his neck, and We will produce for him on the Day of Resurrection a record which he will encounter spread open. [It will be said], "Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant."
(13, 14 sura bani israeel)


What comes to you of good is from Allah, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allah as Witness.
(79 surah anisa)


There is no bad omens,or calamities in any person or any month or any date or number in Islam. If some thing wrong happens with someone it is due to their evil deeds. We have to work on our self to remove calamities from our life.
