Month of Rajab

Duas to be recited on the first day of the Month of Rajab

It is advisable to observe fasting on this day. According to narrations, Prophet Noah (`a) embarked on the Ark on such a day; he therefore ordered his companions to observe fasting. Hence, whoever observes fasting on this day; Hellfire will move away from him for a distance of one year walking.
Taking a Ghusl is also advisable on this day.

It is recommended to recite the long supplication, particularized for this day, that is mentioned in the book of ‘Iqbal al-A`mal’:

اَللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أسْألُكَ يا اللهُ يا اللهُ يا اللهُ،
allahumma inny as-aluka ya allahu ya allahu ya allahu,
O Allah: I verily beseech You, O Allah; O Allah; O Allah;
أنْتَ اللهُ القَديمُ الأزَلِيُّ الْمَلِكِ العَظيمِ،
anta allahu alqadimu al-azaliyyu almaliki al`azimi,
You are Allah; the Eternal, Whose Great Kingdom is everlasting.
أنْتَ اللهُ الحَيُّ القَيُّومُ الْمَوْلى السَّميعُ البَصيرُ،
anta allahu alhayyu alqayyumu almawla alssami`u albasiru,
You are Allah; the Ever-living, the Self-Subsisting, the Master, the All-hearing, and the All-seeing.

O He to Whose Godhead, might and majesty

wal-mashi’atu wal-hananu wal-rrahmatu wal-mulku lirububiyyatihi,
And volition and tenderness and mercy and lordship—all these belong to His Godhead.

To Your light, all lights glowed;

Whether You revealed in Your Books, or You added to the Reminder that You keep,
وَتَسَمَّيْتَ بِهِ لِمَنْ شِئْتَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ
wa tasammayta bihi liman sh’ita min khalqika
Or You used it with any of Your creatures that You willed

And intervene between me and the forbidden things,
وَاجْعَلْ لي عِلْماً نافِعاً،

wa bismika alladhy da`aka bihi yuwnusu `alayhi alssalamu fy batni alhuti fakhrajtahu minhu,
And by Your Name by which Jonah—peace be upon him—prayed You from the interior of the whale; and You thus took him out of there;

fastajabta lahu wa kashafta `anhu ma kana fihi man diqi batni alhuti.
Hence, You responded to him and relieved from the distress that he had experienced in the interior of the whale;

I beseech You to send blessings upon Muhammad, Your servant and Your Messenger, and upon his Household, the Immaculate,

Verily, You are All-hearing, Responding.

(1st, 15th and Last Day of Rajab)
Salman Farsi narrates that Prophet Muhammad (saws) said "O Salmaan, there is no Mumin/Muminah (True Believer/Female Believer) who performs 30 Raka' in the month of Rajab; that Allah does forgive them their sins and bestows rewards upon them as upon a person who has fasted a whole month. He becomes among those who will be steadfast in their salaat in the year which is to come. For him, the deeds of the day are equal to that of the martyr. He will be raised with the Martyrs of the Holy Battle of Badr. For him is written for the fast of each day, one year's worship. His station is raised 1000 times higher.” He said Jibreel informed me "O Muhammad this is the sign between you and the Mushrikeen (Polytheists) and the Munaafiqeen (Hypocrites) because the Munafiq does not perform this Salaat."
Method of Salaah:
10 units on 1st, 10 units on 15th & 10 units on the last day 10 Raka' and in each Raka' recite; Surah Al-Fatihah once, Surah Al Ikhlas 3 times and Surah Al Kafiroon 3 times and after you recite Salaam (at the end of each 2 units) raise your hands and say:
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ ٱللَّهُ
la ilaha illa allahu
There is no god save Allah,
وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ
wahdahu la sharika lahu
the One and Only Who has no partner.
لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ ٱلْحَمْدُ
lahu almulku wa lahu alhamdu
To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise.
يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ
yuhyi wa yumitu
He gives life and causes to die
وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لاَ يَمُوتُ
wa huwa hayyun la yamutu
while He is Ever-living and never dies.
بِيَدِهِ ٱلْخَيْرُ
biyadihi alkhayru
In His hand is the good
وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
wa huwa `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
and He has power over all things.
The following litany should be said thereafter:
اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ مَانِعَ لِمَا اعْطَيْتَ
allahumma la mani`a lima a`tayta
O Allah, verily, none can ever divest him whom You decide to give,
وَلاَ مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ
wa la mu`tiya lima mana`ta
none can ever give him whom You decide to deprive,
وَلاَ يَنْفَعُ ذَا ٱلْجَدِّ مِنْكَ ٱلْجَدَّ
wa la yanfa`u dhaljaddi minka aljadda
and nothing can ever stop that which You decide.
Then, one should pass the hands over the face.
Other ten units of this prayer should be offered on the fifteenth (i.e. middle) of Rajab in the very aforementioned form and litanies. However, the following litany should be added after the first one:
إِلٰهاً وَاحِداً احَداً
ilahan wahidan ahadan
The Lord Who is One, One and Only,
فَرْداً صَمَداً
fardan samadan
Singular, and Besought by the all,
لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صَاحِبَةً وَلاَ وَلَداً
lam yattakhidh sahibatan wa la waladan
has betaken neither a wife nor a son.
The last ten units of this prayer should be offered on the last day of Rajab in this very form; rather, the following litany is added after the first one:
وَصَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ ٱلطَّاهِرِينَ
wa salla allahu `ala muhammadin wa alihi alttahirina
May Allah send blessings to Muhammad and upon his Household, the Immaculate.
وَلاَ حَوْلَ وَلاَ قُوَّةَ إِلاَّ بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi al`aliyyi al`azimi
There is neither might nor power save with Allah, the Most High, the All-great.
Then, one should pass the hands over the face and submit his requests.

In his book of al-Misbah, Shaykh al-Tusi mentions that al-Mu`alla ibn Khunays has reported Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (`a) as saying, “In Rajab, you may say the following supplicatory prayer; It has been also mentioned by Sayyid Ibn Tawus al-Hasani in his book of Iqbal al-A`mal. According to the narration, this supplicatory prayer is the most comprehensive and it is advisable to repeat it any time.

When you intend to visit the holy tomb of Imam al-Husayn (`a) at these times, you may bathe yourself, put on the cleanest of your clothes, stop at the gate of the holy shrine directing the face toward the kiblah direction, and invoke Almighty Allah’s greetings upon the Holy Prophet, Imam `Ali, Lady Fatimah al-Zahra', Imam al-Hasan, Imam al-Husayn, and the Holy Imams—peace be upon them all. You may then enter the shrine, stop at the holy tomb, and repeat the following word one hundred times:
اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ
allahu akbar
Allah is the Most Great.
You may then say the following words:
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَا بْنَ رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ
alssalamu `alayka yabna rasuli allahi
Peace be upon you, O son of Allah’s Messenger.
