Rabi al-Thani: Understanding the Islamic Month

Meaning of Rabi’ Al-Thani: Second spring

Rabi al-Thani: Understanding the Islamic Month

Rabi al-Thani: Understanding the Islamic Month

Rabi Al-Thani is the fourth month in the Islamic calendar and translates to ‘the second spring’. Also known as 'Rabi Al-Aakhir', which translates to ‘the last spring’, it refers to the end of the spring period.

The Islamic calendar is made up of 12 months; Muharram, Safar, Rabi Al-Awwal, Rabi Al-Thani, Jumada Al-Awwal, Jumada Al-Thani, Rajab, Sha’ban, Ramadan, Shawwal, Dhul Qa’da, and Dhul Hijjah. Some of these months have significant events that occurred during them, such as important births or deaths, while others don’t, but it is still important to worship Allah (SWT) all year round with increased acts of worship.

When is Rabi Al-Thani 2023?

Rabi Al-Thani is expected to begin on 16 October and end on 15 November 2023.

Use Rabi Al-Thani Wisely

It is important to continue worshipping Allah (SWT) throughout the year, including in Rabi Al-Thani. To gain more rewards, you could read more Qur’an, perform voluntary prayers and fasts, care for the sick or donate to charity. Although there are no special rewards for worship in this month, good deeds made with the right intentions will be rewarded, Insha’Allah.

As the fourth month in the Islamic calendar and a quarter of the way through the year, it is a good time to reflect on the previous months and prepare to increase worship for the upcoming months.

“A charity is due for every joint in each person on every day the sun comes up: to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it, is a charity; a good word is a charity; and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity.” (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)
