Safar is the second month of the Islamic calendar. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ called it ‘Safar al-Khayr’. A great number of previous nations perished during this month. Complete this adab daily with the intention of being protected and safeguarded, and in particular on the last Wednesday of this month, about which Grandshaykh (q) said, “On the last Wednesday of the month of Safar 70,000 bala (afflictions) are sent down to earth. The person who keeps the recitations [for this month] will be protected by Allah (swt).”

1. Shahada (3 times) (“Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illa-Llah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasooluh” )
2. Astagfirullah (300 times)
3. Daily sadaqa for the sake of Allah (swt) with the intention of removing afflictions.
4. Read Surat al-Fil (7 times)
5. Recite Ayatu ‘l-Kursi (7 times)

QURBAN: Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani relates that the Prophet (s) said, “Who will be the one to give me the good tidings of the exit of Safar al-Khayr?” Zabiha/Qurban for the sake of Allah is recommended in Safar.
