The Holy Month Of Rajab

How are we to spend the precious moments of this graceful month of ISTIGHFAR?

Are we prepared to perform the recommended acts of this holy month?

Are we truly going to repent for the sins that we have committed?

Are we going to try and earn the blessings of fasting in this month?

Rajab marks the beginning of the spiritual season of every believer ending with the end of the fasting month of Ramadan with the Eid Al Fitr. These three months are unmatched in their importance. Praise be to the Almighty and thanks to Him for granting us yet another opportunity to cleanse ourselves of our sins and oversights.

The Holy Prophet (SAW) has said:

" Rajab is a great month of Allah, unmatched by any other month in the respect and significance (accorded to it); war with the infidels during this month is prohibited; Verily, Rajab is Allah's month, Sha'aban my month and Ramadan the month of my Ummah; whosoever fasts a day in the month of Rajab will be granted the great reward of Ridwan (an angel in heaven); the wrath of Allah shall be distanced and a door of the Hell shall be closed."

Fasting is one of the most recommended acts during this spiritual season. It becomes Wajib during the month of Ramadan, but is highly recommended during the months of Rajab and Sha'baan. As will be noted from the Hadith above and others to follow, fasting, be it for only one day during these months, is rewarded with untold bounties.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) has recommended to us a prayer, to be performed on the first Thursday in Rajab, which will give us the following benefits:

Forgiveness of a great many sins.

Safety from the troubles of the first night in the grave, and shelter on the Day of Resurrection, after the Trumpet is blown. The prayer will take the shape of a fine, smiling person, and he will enter the grave of one who performed it, with the following words:

"My dear friend, good news for you! You are safe from all troubles!"

The dead one will ask: "But may I know please who you are? I have never seen a face better than yours; nor have I heard words sweeter than the words from your tongue; nor have I smelled a perfume more refreshing than from you!"

The reply that he or she will get is: "My dear, I am the act which you performed on that particular night, month and year, and in that particular country. I have come tonight into your grave to reward you, and to remove your feelings of loneliness and hopelessness. And when the siren on the Day of Judgement will take you out, I will provide you a cool cover over your head. So, be full of joy. No goodness will be denied to you."

How To Perform The Prayer

Fast on the first Thursday of Rajab.

In the evening between Maghrib and Isha, perform 12 units (Rak'at) of prayer, in two's (i.e. two at a time). In each unit recite: Once Sura-al-Fateha; three times Sura-al-Qadr; and 12 times Sura-al-Tawhid (Qul huwallahu).

After the 12 units (rakats) are over, recite 70 times:

    Salawat (while sitting) : "Allahumma Salli Ala Muhammad, Annabiyyil Ummiyyi, Wa Ala Aalihi"

    Tasbih (in Sijdah): "Subbuhun Quddusun, Rabbul Malaikati Warruh"

    Istighfar (while sitting): "Rabbigh-Fir, War-ham, Watajawaz Amma Ta'alamu, Innaka antal aliyyul Aa-zam"

    Tasbih (again in Sijdah): "Subbuhun Quddusun, Rabbul Mala'ikati Warruh"

Then seek your needs, they will be granted, Inshallah.
