السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته،

There was no sighting of the moon, thus Rajab completes 30 days, and the 1st of Sha'ban 1440 will be on Sunday, April 7th, 2019.

Please note that the 1st of Ramadhan will either be Monday, May 6 or Tuesday, May 7.

Ahādīth on the virtues of Sha'ban:

Usamah ibn Zaid reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I do not see you fasting any month as much as you fast during Sha’ban.” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “It is a month people neglect between the months of Rajab and Ramadan. It is a month in which the deeds are raised to the Lord of the worlds and I like for my deeds to be raised while I am fasting.”

Sunan al-Nasā’ī 

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah descends in the night of the middle of the month of Sha’ban and he forgives all of his creatures except for an idolater or one harboring hatred.”

Sunan Ibn Mājah
