We have reached the month of Safar.
It is prescribed to perform the following throughout the month:
Every day in addition to any recitations already being carried out:
1. Ashadu an la ilaha ill’ Allah wa ashadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasuluhu (saws) – three times
2. Astaghfirullah (300 times).
3. Give sadaqah (charity) daily for the sake of Allah Almighty with the intention of lifting away afflictions and misfortunes.
4. Surat Al-Fil (seven times)
5. Ayat al-Kursi (7 times).
It is a good practice, and that of Grandshaykh ‘Abdullah al-Fa’iz al-Daghestani, to sacrifice a lamb (qurban) for the sake of Allah Almighty on the 27th of Safar.
from Futuhat al-Haqqaniyya by Shaykh Muhammad ‘Adnan Kabbani
