|Lunar Hijri Calendar|
Shaʿbān or Shaʿbān al-Muʿaẓẓam is the 8th month of Hijri Calendar. It is considered one of the most honored and respected months of the year, because it is attributed to the Prophet Muhammad (s). Some of the happiest anniversaries of Shi'a are also in this month, such as the birthdays of Imam al-Husayn (a), Imam al-Sajjad (a), Imam al-Mahdi (a), and Abu l-Fadl al-'Abbas (a).
