Some people consider first thirteen days of safar as inauspicious and called them as TERA-TEZI.

It there any hadith in support of this or it is just a superstition.

  • The number 13 suspect me that the reference should be nonislamic. But I'm searching and will tell you my searches some days later. Dec 17 '13 at 7:58
  • There is no such thing as any number being un-lucky, its just a superstition and its haram to believe or follow in surstitions.

First of all: I've never heard about the 13 unlucky days of Safar.

Second of all: Some muslims, especially Shia, consider both Muharram and Safar months of grief and sadness, that's because Muharram is the month which Husain ibn Ali was killed in the famous Battle of Karbala, and a lot of other Wafiyat (deaths) happened in this two months, including:


Assalamualaikum brother,

There is NOTHING like Un-lucky or suspicious about this month. and dont go for people, people believe in millions of stupid actions, you cannot just follow them in everything. if you do, they will lead you to hellfire.

Coming to the question, here is the hadith to prove that this month has nothing like this superstition:

The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said,

“There is no contagious disease that is transferred except by Allaah's permission. Nor is there the belief of when seeing or hearing an owl that it is the announcement of someone's death. Nor is there the belief of being pessimistic about the month of Safar. And fear the leper like you fear a lion.'
