Merits of the Month of Rajab

Excerpted from Mafati al-Jinan
Translated / Edited by Afzal Sumar

It is narrated from the Prophet (saw) who said: ‘the month of Rajab is the greatest month of Allah. No month can come close to matching its sanctity and grace. Fighting the disbelievers in it is prohibited.[1] Indeed, Rajab is the month of Allah, while Shaʿbān is my month and (the month of) Ramaḍān is the month of my community. Surely, the one who fasts (even) one day in (the month of) Rajab deserves the greatest pleasure of Allah. The wrath of Allah moves away from him, and a door from the doors of hell is closed for him.’

The seventh Imām Mūsā b. Jaʿfar (as) (d. 183 AH / 799 AD) said: ‘whoever fasts one day in the month of Rajab has the fire (of hell) keep away from him the distance of one year, while whoever fasts three days (in this month) has paradise become incumbent for him.’
