From Iqbal Aamal:-
Section 60 On the Secrets of the 15th Rajab
Beware that this is the day for which there are secrets and many gifts are bestowed on it, the poor become needless and the grief-stricken people will feel relief. Thus you should turn to God and ask him to improve your affairs. Consider yourself to be in the presence of the Lord and a guest of the Prophet (as). Remember that you might not live and see the next middle day of the month of Rajab!
The following narration has been reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas. Adam (as) said: “O‟ Lord! Please let me know of Your most loved days and times.”
Then God the Blessed the Sublimed revealed to him, “O‟ Adam! The most loved times for me are the middle day of the month of Rajab. O‟ Adam! Seek proximity to me on the middle day of the month of Rajab by offering, feeding people, fasting, reciting supplications and asking for forgiveness and saying, „There is no God but God.‟
O‟ Adam! I have destined to appoint a Prophet (as) from your lineage who is not bad-tempered and does not yell in the bazaar. He is kind, merciful, and highly blessed. I will especially honor him and his nation with the middle day of the month of Rajab. I shall grant whatever asked for. I shall forgive whoever asks for forgiveness. I shall provide for whoever asks for provisions. I shall overlook any mistakes. I shall have Mercy upon whoever asks for Mercy. O‟ Adam! Whoever is fasting in the morning of the middle day of the month of Rajab while mentioning God, humble, protecting his private parts and giving charity using his wealth shall have no reward near Me but Paradise.

The Other Events of the Fifteenth Day of Rajab
It has been reported inarration: “On the fifteenth day of Rajab, God‟s Prophet (as) left Sha‟b Abu Talib.
Also on this day, God‟s Prophet (as) married off our Master Fatima Zahra (as) to our Master Ali (as) with God‟s permission.
Also, in this day the Qibla was changed from Jerusalem and the Muslims said the evening prayer facing the Ka‟ba.

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.

Fifteenth (i.e. middle) of Rajab the following should be added after the first recitation at end of each 2 Rakat::
إِلٰهاً وَاحِداً أَحَداً
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.

Then, one should pass the hands over the face and submit his requests.

Salman Farsi narrates that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him and his family) 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."
