It was narrated to us by al-Shaykh, al-Faqih al-adūq (Abū Jaʿfar Moammed bin ʿAlī bin al-ussain bin Mūsa bin Bābawayh al-Qummi رحمه الله) who said – it was narrated to us by my father رحمه الله who said – it was narrated to us by Amed bin ‘Idris, who said – it was narrated to us by Moammed bin ʿĪsa bin ʿUbayd, from Yūnis bin ʿAbd al-Raḥmān, from ʿAbd Allāh bin al-Fadhl al-Hāshimi:

From al-Ṣādiq, Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليه السلام, who said: “The fasting of [the month of] Shaʿbān is hoarded for the servant [of Allāh] on the Day of Judgement. The servant [of Allāh] does not collect more of the fast in [the month of] Shaʿbān except that Allāh improves the condition of his living, and stops the evil of his enemies. The minimum for the one who fasts a single day of [the month of] Shaʿbān is that Paradise becomes obligatory for him.”

حدثنا الشيخ الفقيه أبو جعفر محمد بن علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه القمي (رحمه الله)، قال: حدثنا أبي (رحمه الله)، قال: حدثنا أحمد بن إدريس، قال: حدثنا محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن يونس بن عبد الرحمن، عن عبد الله بن الفضل الهاشمي، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد (عليه السلام)، قال: صيام شعبان ذخر للعبد يوم القيامة، وما من عبد يكثر الصيام في شعبان إلا أصلح الله له أمر معيشته، وكفاه شر عدوه، وإن أدنى ما يكون لمن يصوم يوما من شعبان أن تجب له الجنة
