Short dua - Last days of Shaban اللّهُمَّ إِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ | Ahlul Bayt Duas and Supplications

اللّهُمَّ إِنْ لَمْ تَكُنْ غَفَرْتَ لَنا فِيما مَضى مِنْ شَعْبانَ فَاغْفِرْ لَنا فِيما بَقِيَ مِنْهُ


Imam al-Ridha(a.s) is reported as saying, “If one observes fasting on the last three days of Sha`ban and attach it to the obligatory fasting of Ramadan, Almighty Allah will reward him as if he has observed fasting for two consecutive months.”
It has been narrated in the book `Uyun al-Akhbar al-Ridha from Abi Salt al-Harawi that when he visited Imam al-Ridha (a.s) on the last Friday of Sha`ban, the Imam said to him, “Abu’lalt: The majority of Sha`ban has passed. This is the last Friday in it. You should thus settle what you have missed in this month by working hard in the rest of it. You may supplicate, seek forgiveness of Almighty Allah, recite the Holy Qur'an, and repent before Almighty Allah from your sins so that you receive the month of Ramadan with pure sincerity to Almighty Allah. You must fulfill all the trusts that you are liable to settle; and do not bear malice against any of your brethren-in-faith; and you must give up any sin that you commit. Fear Almighty Allah and trust in Him in secret and openly, for ‘If any one puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is (Allah) for him. For Allah will surely accomplish his purpose: verily, for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion. 65/3’
In the rest days of Sha`ban, you may repeat the following supplication very much for Almighty Allah saves many people from Hellfire on account of the sanctity of this month:
O Allah: If You have not forgiven us in the past days of Shaban (please do) forgive us in the rest of it.
