13th - 14th - 15th RAJAB AAMAL
It is highly desirable to observe fast on the 13th, 14th and 15th of Rajab.
The following is narrated through a chain of documents to my grandfather Abi Ja‟far al-Tusi narrated on the authority of Imam As-Sadiq (as): “God would record the fasting and staying up at night of one year for whoever fasts during the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth days of Rajab. He would stand in the position of those who are secure on the Resurrection Day.”
Have a Ghusl/bath each day, and give alms in the way of Allah.

Nights of “Ayyam Baydh”
The following is reported with its chain of documents from Muhammad ibn Ali Al-Tarazy in his book, on the authority of Abul Hussein Ahmad ibn Ahmad ibn Sa‟eed al-Katib – may God be pleased with him. Abul Abbas Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Sa‟eed narrated that Muhammad ibn Ali al-Qalyani said that he heard his grandfather say that Ahmad ibn Abil Ayfa quoted on the authority of Ja‟far ibn Muhammad (as) who said: “God has granted three months to this nation that He has not granted any other nation. They are the months of Rajab,Sha‟ban and Ramadhan.
He has also bestowed three nights to them that He has not granted anyone else.
They are the thirteenth, the fourteenth and the fifteenth nights of each month.
God has granted this nation three Chapters which He has not granted any other nation.
They are the Chapters Ya Sin, Tabarakul Mulk and Qul Huwa Allahu Ahad
These three things combined constitute the noblest thing that has been granted to this nation.‟ ” He (as) was asked, “How can these three be combined?” He (as) replied, “You can pray on these three nights as below in these three months.
Then you can benefit from the nobility of these three months and God would forgive all your sins except for associating partners with Him.”
