The Blessed Month of Rajab - 1433 AH

The Month of Mercy, Blessings and Forgiveness from Allah swt
The Month of Rajab marks the beginning of the spiritual season for every believer
Ending with the end of the Fasting Month of Mahe Mubarak Ramadan with the festivities of Eid Al Fitr.
These three months (Rajab, Shaban, and Mahe Ramadhan) are unmatched in their significance and importance.

The Holy Prophet (SAW) has said:
“Rajab is a great month of Allah, unmatched by any other month in respect and significance (accorded to it). 
Verily, Rajab is Allah’s month, Sha’aban is my month and Ramadan Mubarak is the month of my Ummah.
Whosoever fasts a day in the month of Rajab will be granted the great reward &
the wrath of Allah shall be distanced and a door of the Hell shall be closed.”
Imam Musa Al Kazim (as) said:
Rajab is a great month, during which Allah (swt) multiplies the rewards of good deeds and omits the sins.

To develop spirituality and attain nearness to Allah swt
Some of the recommended Ibadats for the Month of Rajab Mubarak
It is highly recommended to fast in this month of Rajab even for one day at least.  A hadith says:
Whosoever fasts a day in Rajab, the fire of hell will be away from him a distance of one year’s journey,
and whosoever fasts 3 days in Rajab, will be entitled for Paradise.
It has been recorded that Imam Ali (as) used to fast the whole month of Rajab.
Seeking Forgiveness (Estighfaar)
The Prophet (saw) used to say:
Rajab is a month of seeking forgiveness, so seek forgiveness from Allah (swt);
He is verily the Forgiver, the Merciful.  It is highly recommended to repeat ‘Astaghfirullaaha Wa'atubu Ilayhi’.
Sadaqa and Charity
There is a big reward for sadaqa and charity in the month of Rajab.

It is recommended to recite ‘Qul-ho-wallaho Ahad‘ 100 times every Friday in the month of Rajab.

Praise be to the Almighty and thanks to Him for granting us yet another opportunity
to cleanse ourselves of our sins and oversights
and providing us with an opportunity to attain His pleasure and nearness.
