TweetMufti Taqi Usmani has written the following regarding the month of Safar:
Safar is the second month in the Islamic calendar. It is one of the Al-Ashhur-al-Hurum, the four sanctified months in which battle was prohibited in the days of the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam. However, no specific mode of worship or other special rules are set by the Shariah to observe in this month.
Some people believe that this month is an unlucky month and therefore avoid marriage ceremonies or any other happy gatherings in this month. This belief is totally baseless and it is a part of the superstitions rampant in the ignorant of Arabia before the advent of Islam. (Islamic Months p.23)
