Hadith on the Benefits of Fasting in Shaa`ban

Ā’isha said, “The Prophet never fasted in any month more than in the month of Sha'ban.. And he used to say:

" Do those deeds which you can do easily, as Allah will not get tired (of giving rewards) till you get bored and tired (of performing religious deeds)."

The most beloved prayer to the Prophet was the one that was done regularly (throughout the life) even if it were little. And whenever the Prophet offered a prayer he used to offer it regularly.

‘Ā’isha said, "Never did the Messenger of Allāh completed the fasting of a month except for Ramadān. And I have never seen Him in a month fasting more therein except Sh‘abān."

And she said:

Allah's Apostle used to fast till one would say that he would never stop fasting, and he would abandon fasting till one would say that he would never fast. I never saw Allah's Apostle fasting for a whole month except the month of Ramadan, and did not see him fasting in any month more than in the month of Sha'ban

Ibn al-Mubārak (ra) says that the Prophet (s) didn’t complete fasting the entire month of Sha‘bān, but that he used to fast most of it as ‘Allāmah al-Imām al-Hāfizh Zayn ad-Dīn bin Rajab al-Hanbalī said in his book, Latā‘if al-Ma‘ārif.
