Safar – An Islamic Month
Safar is the second month of the Islamic (Hijri) calendar, the first being the sacred month of Muharram which is one of the four sacred months of the year, ordained by Allah (SWT). Although the Believer has valuable possibilities in every minute, hour, day, week, and month of life, the month of Safar does not include any particularly important religious days for Muslims. However, because of the occasions that took place in the beloved Prophet Muhammad’s life, it is a time period of historical significance (SAW).
The second month in the Islamic calendar is called Safar, and like all Islamic months, it is significant since a number of events happened during this time. We should all observe these occasions and keep in mind all that occurred this month.
The second month of the Hijri calendar is called Safar. And contrary to what the Jahiliyah people, who lived during that time before the Prophetic Mission was established, believed, Islam arrived to dispel the idea that this month brought bad luck.
Safar is the month of fasting!
Umrah is a significant journey that calls for absolute commitment in order to worship and exalt the Almighty. Although it may be done at any time of the year, Safar gives the most ease. The months of Muharram and Safar, which come after Ramadan and have fewer visitors to the Kaaba and Haram, are regarded as splendid months.
It is impossible to conduct the sacred Umrah pilgrimage without keeping Allah in mind. Traveling during this month allows for complete surrender and quiet devotion. Contrary to common perceptions and assumptions, this month is among the most favorable months of the year for the Umrah trip. It guarantees a private and meaningful journey in addition to being a practical financial decision. The cost of airfares and accommodation significantly drops in Safar after the hectic month of Hajj. As a result, it encourages a quiet journey without the annoyance of hurry.
Furthermore, it is important for us to collectively work to stop the spread of myths and false assumptions about Safar. We must keep in mind that nothing occurs against Allah’s (SWT) will and that neither disaster nor suffering is brought about by wicked spirits during this month.
