​Certain Islamic months hold a greater status as compared to others and due to this these months are rendered to be very valuable by the Muslims. The eighth month of the Islamic calendar, Sha'ban is an important month in the life of a believer. Sha'ban comes immediately before the month of Ramadan and serves as a connection between the two sacred months of Ramadan and Rajab.There is a range of reasons why Sha'ban holds great importance in Islam and Islamic parenting and why it is an anticipated month by the community (Ummah). Let us understand this importance and how this month can be favorable for every Muslim. 
Monotheism is the most important aspect of the Islamic faith. It is the very foundation upon which all of the religion's teachings are built. If one does not believe in a singular God, they cannot possibly consider themselves to be a Muslim, no matter how steadfastly they hold to other pieces of Islamic doctrine. Despite Islam's belief in a single God, the Quran uses a plethora of names to refer to Him. The most prominent of these names is, of course, Allah.

Islam is an Abrahamic religion, meaning it worships the single God worshipped by Abraham and his descendants. This monotheism is the cornerstone of the Islamic faith, with the oneness of Allah being stressed throughout the Quran and in the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad. But while Muslims praise only one God, they refer to Him by many names. In fact, most Islamic scholars agree that the Quran uses a total of 99 names to refer to Allah. Each of these names refers to a different aspect of Allah's character, allowing us to better understand everything He is capable of.
