The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) says, “Know that surely the month of Rajab is the month of Allah, the الْأَصَمُّ ( meaning the month where there is no sound of weapon) and it is a great month. It is called as الْأَصَمُّ because there is no month amongst the other months as near to Allah than this with regards to sacredness and excellence. Surely the people of ignorance honored in the era of ignorance and when Islam arrived, it did not but increase its greatness and excellence. Know that Rajab is the month of Allah, Shaban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah….” (Sawabul Aamal, Shaikh Sadooq (a.r.) pg 54, Tradition no 5, Chp on Reward for fasting in the month of Rajab) Fasting in the month of Rajab Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) says, “Rajab is a river of Paradise whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. One who observes one fast in the month of Rajab, Allah, the Mighty and Sublime would satisfy him with this river.” (Ibid) : Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) says, “Rajab is a glorious month. Allah doubles good deeds and wipes the sins in this month. One who observes one fast in Rajab, Hell would go away from him to a distance of a year and Paradise would be made obligatory on one who fasts for three days.” (Ibid) And, Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says, “Nuh (a.s.) boarded his ark on the first of Rajab and ordered his companions to fast on that day. He said that Hell goes away to a distance of one year from one who fasts on this day. One who fasts for seven days all the seven doors of Hell would be closed for him. One who fasts for eight days all eight doors of Paradise would be opened for him. One who fasts for fifteen days would have his problems solved. One who fasts for more than this Allah, the Mighty and Sublime would grant him a greater reward.” (Ibid) Also, Imam Reza (a.s.) says, “The Almighty Allah appointed Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) as His Apostle after three nights of the month of Rajab had passed. Hence observing fast on this day has reward equal to fasting seventy years.” (Ibid) Let us have a look at few more rewards determined for those who fast in this month as mentioned by Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.): 1) He gains lots of pleasure of Allah. 2) Fast would end the anger of Allah upon him; 3) A door of Hell would be closed for him. 4) The reward of this fast with pure intention is better than giving an earth filled with gold as charity. 5) As soon as night falls, Allah would fulfill his ten wishes. 6) If he prays for worldly life his prayers would be accepted. 7) One who prays for His friends, lovers and chosen people, Allah would accept his prayers. 8) One who observes two fasts in the month of Rajab nothing in the earth and heavens can imagine the greatness of that person. He would get the reward of a truthful person who has never lied in his whole life-time. He would appear on the Day of Judgment in the similar state. That person would do intercession of others along with other truthful people till they all enter Paradise and settle down with those truthful persons. 9) One who fasts for three days in Rajab, Allah would erect a barrier between him and Hell whose distance would be equal to travel of seventy years. Allah would say at the time of Iftar, ‘You have right upon Me and My love for you has become obligatory. O angels! I hold you witness that I have forgiven his sins from start till the end’. 10) One who fasts for four days in the month of Rajab, he will remain safe from calamities like the evils of Jinns, leprosy, leucoderma, mischief of Dajjal and the punishment of grave. He would get the reward of wise persons who repent. He would be handed over the scroll of deeds in his right hand and made to stand in the first row of worshippers. 11) One who fasts for five days in the month of Rajab it is the duty of Allah to please him on the Day of Judgment. His face would be shinning like the full moon when he is resurrected on the Day of Judgment. Rewards equal to the number of grains of sand would be written for him and he would be made to enter Paradise without any accounting. He would be given choice to ask whatever he wants from Allah. This tradition has listed rewards of all 30 days of the month of Rajab, interested readers can refer to the book Sawaabul Aamaal of Shaikh Sadooq (r.a.) in the Chp of Reward for fasting in the month, Tradition no 5) Duas in this month Mahe Rajab is the month of duas, munajat and ziarat. There are various sentences of Isetghfaar to be recited everyday like: 1) Astaghfirullaha wa as-aluhu at-tawba. (I seek forgiveness from Allah, and I pray He accepts my repentance.) – To be recited as much as possible. 2) Laa ilaha ill Allah - (There is no God but Allah) – To be recited 1000 times in the entire month. 3) Astaghfirullahal-ladhee laa ilaaha illaa Huwa, wahdahu laa shareeka lah, wa atoobuilayh (I ask forgiveness from Allah Whom there is no God besides He, and He has no partner, and I repent before Him) 400 times. The reward of that will be the same as 100 martyrs would receive 4) Dua to be recited after very wajib namaz which starts with “Yaa Man Arjuhu Le Kulle Khair”. Apart from these, there are duas to be recited in Namaz Shab during the month of Rajab, duas for various days like the first shabe jummah (known as lailatul ragheb), 15th of Mahe Rajab (famous for Dua of Umme Dawood), 27th Rajab – Day of Be’that – The 3rd section of Mafateehul Jinan has around 20 pages for the Aamal of Mahe Rajab.
The Holy Prophet (s.a) has said, that these prayers are Means of forgiveness and on the first night in our grave, the Almighty will send the reward off this prayer in the best, enlightened and eloquent form. When inquired, will reply, ‘‘My Beloved,, glad tidings to you that you have found salvation from every hardship and horror..’’When asked,, ‘‘Who are you?’’ ‘‘By God I haven't seen any one more beautiful than you,, I haven't heard a word sweeter than yours,, or a fragrance better than you?’’ In reply,, ‘‘I am,, that prayer which you offered on the eve off the first Friday of the month of Rajab.
