Newsletter for September 2010
Insha'Allah Monday 14th June 2010 is expected to be the 1st of Rajab Mubarak - the month of Mercy, Blessings and Forgiveness from Allah swt.
Rajab marks the beginning of the spiritual season for every believer ending with the end of the fasting month of Ramadan with the Eid Al Fitr.
These three months (Rajab, Shaban, and 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 the 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 of Ridwan (an angel in heaven); the wrath of Allah shall be distanced and a door of the Hell shall be closed.”
Imam Musa Al Kazim (as) said:
a great month, during which Allah (swt) multiplies the rewards
of good deeds and omits the sins.
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.
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.
