===============

Excerpts from Al-Ghunya li-Talibi Tariq al-Haqq Vol.3 by Master of Sufis Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir Jilani

The First Day and Night of the First Friday of Rajab

As for the night of the first Friday of the month of Rajab or its first night, both known as the “Night of wishes”
(laylat al-ragha’ib) during which is performed the salat al-ragha’ib.

(please note: Thursday Night in Islam is actually Friday,we start from Maghrib & finish at maghrib the following
night so- the whole of Friday thus starts is -Thursday night to Friday night, the day is Asr to Asr there is no concept
in Islam that the day starts at 12.00am this is a western non-muslim belief or understanding. Fajr then is our 3rd prayer beginning of the day.

How To Perform The Prayer Fast on the first Thursday of Rajab.

……..” It is most important, however, that none of you should neglect the First Friday in Rajab, for it is the night that
the angels call the Night of [the Granting of] Wishes [Lailat ar-Ragha'ib]. This is because, by the time the first third
of the night has elapsed, there will not be a single angel still at large in the heavens, nor in any region of the earth bar one.
They will all be gathered together in the Ka’ba and the area immediately surrounding it. Allah (Exalted is He)
will condescend to notice that they have assembled there, and He will say: “My angels, ask Me for whatever you wish!”
Their response to this will be: “Our Lord, the request we wish to make is that You grant forgiveness to those who
faithfully keep the fast in Rajab,” whereupon Allah (Exalted is He) will tell them: “That I have already done!”

Then Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

” No one will go unrewarded if he fasts during the daytime on Thursday, the first Thursday in 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 Sajdah): “Subbuhun Quddusun, Rabbul Mala`ikati Warruh”

All-Glorious, All-Holy,n Lord of the Angels and of the Spirit!

Istighfar (while sitting): “Rabbigh-Fir, War-ham, Watajawaz `Amma Ta’alamu, Innaka antal `aliyyul A`a-zam”

My Lord, forgive and have mercy m pardon that which You well know, for You are the Mighty, the Supreme

Tasbih (again in Sajdah): “Subbuhun Quddusun, Rabbul Mala’ikati Warruh”

All-Glorious, All-Holy,n Lord of the Angels and of the Spirit!

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

Reward for praying 12 rakah on first night

Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) also said:

” By Him in whose Hand is my soul [wa 'lladhi nafsi bi-yadih], I assure you that no servant [of His],
whether manservant ['abd] or maidservant [ama], will ever perform this particular salat-prayer
without Allah forgiving all the sins of which that individual has ever been guilty, even if they are
like the flecks of foam upon the ocean, as numerous as all the grains of sand, as heavy as the mountains
, and as many as the drops of rain and the leaves on all the trees. On the Day of Resurrection
[Yawm al-Qiyama], he will be allowed to intercede on behalf of seven hundred members of his family.”

On the first night that worshipful servant spends in his grave, the reward for this salat-prayer will
come to visit him [in the shape of a human being], with a cheerful face and an eloquent tongue.
“O my dear friend,” it will say to him, “rejoice in the good tidings, for I am here to tell you that
you have been delivered from every severe affliction!” This will prompt the servant to exclaim:
“Who are you? By Allah, I swear that I have never seen a man with a better-looking face than yours.
Never have I heard a form of speech more charming than your way of speaking, and never have
I smelled a fragrance more delightful than that of your perfume.” So then it will tell him:
“O my dear friend, I am the reward for that salat-prayer, the one you performed on whichever
night it was, in whichever month it was, in whichever year it was. I have come here tonight in order to
fulfill your request, to entertain you in your solitary state, and to banish your loneliness from you.
Later on, when the trumpet is sounded, I shall provide you with shade to protect your head from
the scorching heat on the Fields of the Resurrection ['Arasat al-Qiyama]. So rejoice in the good tidings,
for you will never be deprived of the blessing that comes from your Master [Mawla].”

30 rakah – are read in units of 2 with “Qul HuwAllahu Ahad” 3 times, and Surah that begins with “
Qul Yaa-ayyu-hal-kaa-firoon” 3 times for every rakah, to read 10 on first night -10 in middle -10 at the end of the month

……Allah (Exalted is He) relents toward His Prophets [anbiya'], because in it He rescues His saints [awliya']
from the hands of their enemies, and because anyone who fasts during this month becomes entitled to
receive three things from Allah (Exalted is He). The first and second of these are forgiveness for
all the sins he has previously committed, and impregnable virtue ['isma] for the remainder of his life.
As for the third, he will be safe from thirst on the Day of the Greatest Review [Yawm al-'Ard al-Akbar].”….

..Ibn `Abd al-Razzaq narrates in his Musannaf (4:317) that Ibn `Umar said:

There are five nights in which invocation (du`a) is not turned back: the night of Jum`a, the first night
of Rajab, the night of mid-Sha`ban, and the two nights of `Eid.

The beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam peace be upon him said: ‘The fast of the
first day of Rajab is repentance for 3 years and the fasting of the second day is repentance for 2 years
and the fast of third day is repentance for 1 year and then each remaining day -of Rajab- is repentance for 1 month.’

‘Whoever fasts the 1st day of Rajab it will be equivalent to the fast of 1 year; and whoever fasts 7 days in it,
the 7 gates of Hell will be closed for him; and whoever fasts 10 days from Rajab, a caller will call out from the sky, “Ask and you will be given!” ‘

‘Rajab is a tremendous month in which Allah multiplies the good deeds. So whoever fasts a day from Rajab
it is as if he fasted a year; and whoever fasts seven days of it the seven gates of Hell are closed to him; and
whoever fasts eight days from it the eight gates of Paradise are opened to him; and whoever fasts ten days
from it will not ask Allah something except that Allah will grant it. And whoever fasts from it fifteen days a
caller will call out from heavens “Verily you have been forgiven whatever is past, so renew your good actions,
for indeed your transgressions have been transformed into virtuous deeds.” And whoever does more,
Allah gives to him even more. And in Rajab Allah carried Noah/Nuh alaihi salaam peace be upon him in
the ark and he/Noah fasted and ordered all those with him to do so. And the ark sailed with them for six
months until the first ten days of Muharram/first month of islamic calender.’

Fasting in Rajab and Merit of Fasting During the 27th Day of Rajab

As for the name ash-Shahru’l-Mutahhir [The Purifying Month], it is so called because it purifies [yutahhiru]
the person who fasts in the course of it, ridding him of his sins and offenses.

Relevant in this context is another traditional report related to us by
Shaikh Imam Hibatu’llah ibn al-Mubarak as-Saqati (may Allah bestow His mercy upon him).
According to this report, Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

The month of Rajab is a glorious month indeed. If someone has fasted for one day in Rajab,
Allah (Exalted is He) will record it in his credit column as the fast of a thousand years.

If someone has fasted for two days in Rajab, Allah (Exalted is He) will record
it in his credit column as the fast of two thousand years.

If someone has fasted for three days in Rajab, Allah (Exalted is He)
will record it in his credit column as the fast of three thousand years.

If someone has fasted for seven days in Rajab, all the seven gates of Hell
[Jahannam] wil be locked to make sure that he stays out of it.

If someone has fasted for eight days in Rajab, al the eight gates of the Garden
of Paradise will be held open for him, so that he may enter by whichever gate he chooses.

If someone has fasted for fifteen days in Rajab, all his bad deeds will be replaced
by good deeds, and a crier will call out from heaven above: “Allah has now forgiven
you, so use the opportunity to set about good work anew!”

Traditional Reports Concerning the Sacred Month of Rajab

According to a report transmitted by ‘Ikrima, on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas
(may Allah be well pleased with him and with his father), the Prophet (Allah bless
him and give him peace) once said:

Rajab is Allah’s month, Sha’ban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Community.

Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) is also reported as having said:

In the Garden of Paradise there is a river called Rajab, whiter than milk and sweeter than honey.
If someone has fasted for one day during the month of Rajab, Allah will let him quench his thirst by drinking from that river.

Anab ibn Malik (may Allah be well pleased with him) is reported as having said: “
In the Garden of Paradise there is a palace that no one may enter, with the exception
of someone who makes a frequent practice of fasting during the month of Rajab.”

According to another traditional report, also transmitted on the authority of Anas
[ibn Malik] (may Allah be well pleased with him), Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) once said:

If someone has fasted for three days during the sacred months, on a Thursday,
a Friday and a Saturday, Allah will credit him with the worshipful service [ibada] of nine hundred years!

The Merit of Fasting During the 27th Day of Rajab

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) once said:

If someone keeps the fast on the 27th day of Rajab, he will be credited with the
same reward as that which is earned by fasting for sixty months.

It was on the 27th day of Rajab, we are told, that Gabriel first came down to invest
the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) with his Messengership [Risala].

According to this next report, likewise conveyed to us by Sheikh Hibatu’llah, Allah’s Messenger
(Allah bless him and give him peace) once said:

Rajab contains a very special day and a very special night. If someone fasts during that day,
and keeps vigil throughout that night, he will be entitled to a reward like the one that would
be earned by a person who fasted for a hundred years, and who keeps vigil throughout all the nights in that period.

The reference must be to the 27th of Rajab, that being the day on which our Prophet
(Allah bless him and give him peace) was first dispatched to embark upon his mission.

Sheikh Hibatu’llah (may Allah bestow His mercy upon him) has informed us on good
traditional authority, Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) once said:

Rajab is one of the sacred months and its days are inscribed on the sixth gate of Heaven.
So, if a man has fasted during one day of this month, and if he has kept his fast completely
clean through obedient devotion [taqwa] to Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He), the heavenly
gate will acquire the faculty of speech, and the day itself will also acquire the faculty of speech,
and the two of them will say: “O Lord, forgive him!” But if he has failed to make his fast complete
through obedient devotion to Allah (Exalted is He), they will make no such plea for him to be forgiven.
They will say, or he will be told by some other voice: “Your own lower self [nafs] has betrayed you!”

Qasida Burdah by Imam Busairi -Concerning the Mi’raaj of him (Rasuluallah Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam)

IS ALSO A VERY SCARED AND ACCEPTED NAAT BY RASULLULAH  Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam

Rajab al-Asab is a month in which the pious engage in acts of piety. It’s title, “al-Asab“, means a “downpour”, indicative of the downpour of blessings that descend during that month. It is one of the four months that was honoured even in the pre-Islamic Arab culture as a month in which it was forbidden to engage in war.

The days of prayers and fasting are here
Peace and repose are now for the pious
Whose countenance now glows like the moon
The understanding know, and the ignorant don’t.

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (rasiallaho tala anho) recounts that Rasulullah (Salallahoalyhewassalm) used to fast the months of Rajab, Shabaan and then Ramadan. That Rasulullah (Salallahoalyhewass

alm

)  would say the Prophet Nuh (alyessalam) embarked on his ark on the 1st of Rajab al-Asab and decreed that all aboard the ark fast that day.

Further, Rasulullah (Salallahoalyhewassalm)  has said that one may perform umrah in any month but there is special merit in doing so in Rajab. In the times of Aimmat Fatimeen , there were four nights in which the empire’s masjids and places of ibadat were adorned. Amongst them were the 1st and 15th of Rajab as these nights had distinction.

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 Sallalahu alaihi wasallam has said:

“Rajab is a great month of Allah, unmatched by any other month in the respect and significance (accorded to it); 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.”

Rajab (Fazilat of Fasting in this month)

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.

Hadrat Salmaan Farsi narrates that the Final messenger of Allah Sallalahu alaihi wasallam said that there is a day in the month of Rajab on which if a person fasts and does Qiyaamul Lail (night vigil) on that night, he will receive rewards like a person who fasts for 100 years and does Qiyaamul Lail for nights of 100 years. This night is the night of the 27th (Rajab) and the day of the 27th (Rajab). This is the day on which Hazrat Muhammad Sallalahu alaihi wasallam was appointed to Messenger hood, (Ghuniyatut Talibeen, Tarteeb Shareef page 781).

Hadrat Salmaan narrates that the Beloved of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad Sallalahu alaihi wasallam said “O Salmaan, there is no Mumin (True Believer) and Muminah (Truly Believing Female) who performs 30 Raka’ah in the month of Rajab and in each Raka’ah recites Surah Al-Faatihah once, Surah Al-Ikhlaas 3 times, and Surah Al-Kafiroon 3 times that Allah does forgive them their sins and bestows rewards upon them as upon a person who has fasted a whole month. He becomes among those who will be steadfast in their Salaat in the year which is to come. For him the deeds of the day are equal to that of the martyr. He will be raised with the Martyrs of the Holy Battle of Badr. For him is written for the fast of each day, one year’s worship. His station is raised 1000 times higher.

If he fasts the entire month of Rajab and he performs this (Above) Salaat, Allah will give him salvation from the Hell Fire, make Waajib for him, His Paradise and bestow His Nearness upon him. Hadrat Jibreel informed me “O Muhammad this is the sign between you and the Mushrikeen (Polytheists) and the Munaafiqeen (Hypocrites) because the Munafiq does not perform this Salaat.”

Hadrat Salmaan says, I beseeched “O Rasoolallah tell me when and how shall I perform this Salaat (Prayer)” He said “O Salmaan, perform 10 Raka’ah on the first of it (month of Rajab) and in each Raka’ah recite Surah Al-Faatihah once, Surah Al-Ikhlaas thrice and Surah Al-Kafiroon thrice and after you do your Salaam (at the end of the Salaat) raise your hands and say:

“There is no God but Allah, The One Who has no partners. To Him belong all His kingdom and all the praise, Who created life and death and Who is Alive without Death. From His hands (only) good is done and Who has Power over everything. Dearest Allah, no one can stop what You bestow and no one can give what You prevent. There is no one who can profit us except You the August among all.” Then spread your hands over your face.

Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (radiallaho tala anho) has narrated that,

“A person who fasts in the month of Rajab for one year, will be saved from the fire of Hell for one year.
He who fasts for two years, will be saved for two years and so on. To one who fasts in the month of Rajab
for seven consecutive years, the gates of Hell would close. And for the person who fasts for eight years,
the eight gates of Heaven would be opened. To the one who fasts in the month of Rajab for ten consecutive
years, it would be said that his deeds are now to be measured anew as all his past sins are forgiven.
And beyond that, the reward for fasting for more years increases further.”
