Rajab - The month of Allah
The Holy Prophet (SAW) has said
“Rajab is the month of Allah, Sha’ban is my month and Ramadhan is the month of my followers. Whoever keeps one fast during Rajab becomes entitled to the great pleasure of Allah, the wrath of Allah remains at ...bay from him and a gate of hell is closed for him.”
The Holy Prophet (SAW) has recommended the recitation of an important prayer, to be performed on the first Thursday of Rajab, which will give us the following benefits:
(i) Forgiveness of major sins
(ii) Safety from troubles of the first night in the grave, and shelter on the day of resurrection, after the Trumpet is blown.
The Holy Prophet (SAW) has also said that Rajab is the name of a river in heaven with water whiter than milk and sweeter than honey and whoever keeps one fast in the month of Rajab will drink from that river.
Last day of Rajab.
For the person who fasts on the last day of Rajab, Allah will save him from the after effects of death.
Istighfar - The Holy Prophet (saww) has said, "Rajab is the month for seeking forgiveness, so seek forgiveness from Allah (swt)".
Sadaqah - Giving `Sadaqah' (charity/alms) is also highly recommended .
