Significance of Rajab
Rajab is one of the four most sacred months of Islamic Calendar. Prophet Mohammad(sawaw) has said that whoever fasts one day in Rajab will earn the pleasure
Imam Ali(a.s.) has said that whoever fasts on the first day, middle or last day of Rajab then his or her sins will be forgiven by Allah(swt).
Imam Jafer Sadiq(a.s.) has said that whoever fasts 3 days in Rajab he/she will be rewarded for one year of fasts for each day and whoever fasts for 8 days
in Rajab will have an easy day of judgment and whoever fasts for the entire month of Rajab then Allah(swt) will earn the everlasting pleasure of Allah(swt).
If one cannot fast then one should recite these tasbeehat every day 100 times:
SUBHANAL ILAHIL JALEELE SUBHANA MAN LA YANBAGHIT TASBEEHU
ILLA LAHU SUBHANAL AA-AZZIL AKRAMI
SUBHANA MAL LABISAL IZZA WA HUWA LAHU AHLUN
It is highly recommended to take bath on the 1st, 15th and last night of this month. There is a lot of reward for reciting Sura Tawheed (Qul ho allahu ahad)
