Safar is not at all unlucky
Allah Subhan Allah Ta’ala has honored us with being the best of all different previous nations and has allowed us the everlasting abundance of Islam. The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) gave the Ummah the message of truth. He brought them out of the obscurity of polytheism and superstition into the brilliance of Unity of Allah and Prophethood.
On the event of the Farewell Hajj, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:
All the customs of the days of ignorance are under my feet.
Islam outright rejects polytheistic convictions, blind convictions and superstitions. A few individuals consider the month of Safar as unfortunate, they think it is a month in which troubles slip, stay away from any real choice or capacity, and so forth despite the fact that considering Safar as unfortunate in totally unislamic.
No day or month is unfortunate. Foreboding isn’t identified with time and place, but has a direct relationship with sins. Inauspiciousness comes into life in view of defying Allah and conferring sins. Allah Most High says:
And whatever misfortune befalls you (comes upon you) as a result of that (evil work) which your own hands have done whilst He forgives most of your (misdoings). Surah Shoora (42:30)
There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari in this connection:
Translation: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: No disease comes on its own, taking an ill omen is not permissible and there is no inauspiciousness in an owl and in the month of Safar. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 5707)
If we consider sins as the source of our difficulties, we will apologize. Every minute spent in obedience of Allah is blessed and auspicious and every moment spent in disobedience of Allah and in sins is devoid of blessings and inauspicious/unfavorable.
Even if we look at the month of Safar historically, there is a Hadith that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) performed the marriage of the Lady of Jannah, Hadhrat Fatima Zahra (May Allah be well pleased with her) with Hadhrat ‘Ali (May Allah be well pleased with him) in this month. Also the Emigration of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), which was in fact a precursor to the Victory over Makkah, was in this month.
In the same way, keeping eggs, oil etc. in the name of “Tera Tezi” is also useless and ought to be avoided. Apart from this, giving charity to the poor and needy to gain the pleasure of Allah Most High is permissible an commendable in this month as it is in other months.
It is the responsibility of parents to raise their children as per Islam injunctions, because by acting on Islamic teachings we will be successful not only in this world but also in the hereafter.
