Subject: [AllahoAkbarGroup] Know All About The Second Islamic Month of Safar
"May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon You"
Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam 'Ala Rasulillah
As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu

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.

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)

"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.
