The Importance of 27 Rajjab

Rajab is the 7th month of the Islamic Calendar. It is an important month since many important events occurred during this month. The most important events occurred on the 13th and 27th Rajab. On 13th Rajab, Imam Ali was born while on 27th Rajab, Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) received his prophethood and ascended to the Heavens and met Allah.

Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan narrated that Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said “I was given Prophethood on the 27th of Rajab. Whoever fasts on this day and asks Dua at the time of Iftar, it will be expiation for 10 years of his sins.”

27th Rajab is a very important day. The reward of a person who does good deeds on this days is equal to 100 years of worship. Thus it is very important to fast on the 27th Rajab and pray Nafil on the night of the 27th. In the world, a new day begins after 12 am; if the date is 6th December, after 12 am it will change to 7th December. However, in the Islamic calendar a new day begins after the Maghrib prayer. If the Islamic date is 5th Rajab, after the Maghrib prayer, it will become 6th Rajab. Thus, all the special prayers, duas, and ijtimas are held after Maghrib prayer. Thus, when we say that special prayers should be prayed on the night of the 27th Rajab, they are actually prayed after Isha prayer on the day of 26th Rajab. Since, the date will change after Maghrib prayer, all the prayers we perform after Isha prayer on the day of 26th Rajab are actually being prayed on the night of 27th Rajab.

There are 12 rakat nafils that should be prayed on this night. Since 1 nafil has 2 rakats, you will be praying total 6 nafils totaling 12 rakats. After every nafil prayer, perform Tashahhud, and after the end of the 12 rakats recite:

100 times, Istighfar 100 times, and Durood Sharif 10 times, and then dua. Inshallah, your dua will be accepted and come true.

It is rewarding to fast on 27th Rajab. Those who fast on 27th Rajab get rewarded for fasting 100 years. Thus 1 fast is equal to 100 years!

The importance of this month is far to be understood. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has stated that whoever fasts in the month of Rajab, will be entitled to drink from a canal in Heaven called ‘Rajab’ whose water will be whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. The person will also have a huge palace in Heaven made for him.
