Please quote the Ahadith about the month of Safar (2nd month of Islamic calendar). Is it true that this is month of Balaayaat? What exactly are BALAAYAAT?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Also what is Tera-Tayzee and significance of last Wednesday of this month? I have observed people to do strange things, like tread grass with bare feet and give wheat and eggs as Sadaqa on the morning of the last Wednesday. There also seems to be a connection of this to Rasulullah’s (s.a.w.s) illness. Please explain all the above questions in your response.

Q: There is a general perception that the months of Muharram and Safar have
an evil in them and anything major done in these months, for example,
purchasing a business, house, making Nikah, etc. is unsuccessful. Kindly
explain if the perception is correct or not according to Shari’ah.
A: To regard the Islamic months of Muharram and Safar as ‘unlucky’ months
and suspend important matters with the fear of them being unsuccessful was
the belief of the pre-Islamic era. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
condemned this belief. Hadhrat Abu Hurayra (Radhiallaahu Anhu) narrates that
Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, “There is no bad omen.”
(Mishkat pg.391) In another narration, it is recorded, “There is no (bad
omen) in (the month of) Safar”. (Ibid)
Therefore, one should not suspend any matter in Muharram and Safar with the
belief that they are unlucky months.
