Assalamu ‘alaikum,

Alhamdulillah, we are in the month of Rajab, one of the four sacred months in Islam. Our teachers at Muwasala offer the following advice on making the most of this blessed month:
The Merits of Rajab

Rajab is the key to the months of goodness which follow it. Imam Abu Bakr al-Warraq explains, “In the month of Rajab you sow the seeds, in Sha`ban you irrigate them, and in Ramadan you reap the harvest.” He also said: “Rajab is like a wind, Sha`ban is like a cloud and Ramadan is like rain.”

The Month of Istighfar

The best way of preparing the heart to receive divine gifts is purification and repentance. Rajab is the month of seeking forgiveness, Sha`ban is the month of bestowing prayers upon the Prophet, and Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an. It has been narrated: “Seek much forgiveness from Allah in Rajab because in every hour (of the month) Allah frees people from the Fire.” It is recommended to recite the following supplication 70 times after `Isha Prayer every night in Rajab:
َر ِّب اْغِفْر لي واْرَحْمِني َوُت ْب َعلَ َّي
“Rabbi ‘ghfir li w’ arhamni wa tub `alayya.”
“O Allah forgive me, have mercy upon me, and grant me repentance.”

Good Deeds in Rajab

The reward of our good actions is multiplied in the sacred months, so it is recommended to do as many good deeds as possible. The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم recommended fasting at least some days in each of the sacred months. At the same time bad deeds are also more serious in the sacred months so we must do our utmost to avoid any wrongdoings.

‘O Allah, bless us in Rajab and Sha`ban and enable us to reach Ramadan. Peace and blessings upon the one who guided us to all good and warned us of all evil, our Master Muhammad and his blessed family and Companions and all those that follow his guidance until the end of time.’
