The Month of Safar


I would like to know if there are any restrictions and/or draw backs from shifting homes, starting a new business, traveling for work related purposes, or anything of that nature in the month of safar. I would also like a reference or evidence for the basis of your answer please. Thank you


There is no such restrictions or drawback in the month of safar. This is more like a norm among people who find the month of Safar “heavy” on themselves. Mostly people from indo-pak background.

To further reassure myself I called a Quran and Hadith centre where they affirmed my answer and added that  “if a person is concerned about doing anything in any month regardless being it Safar only, should give some charity -sadqa- and inshaAllah will achieve good results”.

I hope this was what you were looking for.

Fi amanillah
