The month of Rajab is here, Ramadan is around the corner

“Verily, the number of months with Allah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar). That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein”

[al-Tawbah 9:36]

The sacred months are: Rajab, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram.

Time to get ready inshaAllah. Start preparing.

For the brothers and sisters in the Maryland area, Dar-us-Salaam is having a 2-week program that is perfect for this. Here is a video from Imam Safi with an intro to the “Strengthening our Soul” program. It’s called Seeds of Change:

  1. Allahumma Baariklana Fee Rajaba Wa Sha’baana wa Ballignaa Ramadan. (Oh Allah! Give us blessings in Rajab and Sha’baan and let us live till Ramadan).

    The Prophet (SAW) used to say this du’aa much in the months of Rajab and Sha’baan. It’s also reported that out of the year He (SAW) used to fast most in these two months voluntarily to prepare for Ramadan.

  2. Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Rajab is a great month of Allah (swt), unmatched by any other month in the respect and significance (accorded to it); war during this month is prohibited; Verily, Rajab is Allah’s month, Sha’ban 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 the door of the Hell shall be closed.”

  3. Jazak Allahu’ Khairan for the reminder. InSha’Allah we can take advantage of these Holy Months.

  4. Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

    does anyone know the if the ahadith referenced in the above comments are sahih? if so, who is the narrator, and if there is an online reference/link to the source used, could you provide it please.

    fi’imanilLah,
    Wafā’ وفاء Manasrah

  5. “Rajab is Allah’s month, Sha’ban my month, and Ramadan the month of my Ummah ” is a fake hadith. Imam As-Syuti in his book Al-Jami’ Al-Kabir this hadith is reported by Abu Al-Fat-h ibn Abu al-Fawaris in his book Amali, as being a mursal hadith ( A hadith that has no connection whatsoever as to which sahabah recorded it from the Prophet)
