Fasting in the Month of Shaaban

Hadith: Arabic Text followed by English Translation. 

عَنْ أُسَامَة بْن زَيْدٍ قَالَ : قُلْت : يَا رَسُول اللَّه ، لَمْ أَرَك تَصُومُ مِنْ شَهْر مِنْ الشُّهُور مَا تَصُوم مِنْ شَعْبَان , قَالَ

ذَلِكَ شَهْرٌ يَغْفُلُ النَّاس عَنْهُ بَيْنَ رَجَبٍ وَرَمَضَان , وَهُوَ شَهْر تُرْفَعُ فِيهِ الأَعْمَال إِلَى رَبّ الْعَالَمِينَ ، فَأُحِبُّ أَنْ يُرْفَعَ عَمَلِي وَأَنَا صَائِمٌ

رواه النَّسَائِيُّ( ٢٣٥٧ ) و حسنه الألباني في صحيح النسائي

Usamah ibn Zayd said: “I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I do not see you fasting in any month more than in Sha’ban.’ He said,

That is a month concerning which many people are heedless, between Rajab and Ramadan. It is the month is which people’s deeds are taken up to the Lord of the Worlds, and I would like my deeds to be taken up whilst I am fasting
