Shaban: The Month before Ramadan

We are now in the month of Shaban and this is the month before Ramadan in the Islamic calendar. So what can we do in this month to prepare for Ramadan?

During this month we should be doing some physical cleaning as well as preparing mentally for the holy month of Ramadan. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would also fast quite a lot during the month of Shaban.

If you fast before Ramadan in the month of Shaban then it helps to draw you close to Allah and it will get you in the mood and spirit of Ramadan.
