Hadrat Salmaan narrates that the Beloved of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) said “O Salmaan, there is no Mumin (True Believer) and Muminah (Truly Believing Female) who performs 30 Raka’ah in the month of Rajab and in each Raka’ah recites Surah Al Faatihah once, Surah Al-Ikhlaas 3 times, and Surah Al Kafiroon 3 times 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 is 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.

If he fasts the entire month of Rajab and he performs this (Above) Salaat, Allah will give him salvation from the Hell Fire, make Waajib for him, His Paradise and bestow His Nearness upon him. Hadrat 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.”

Hadrat Salmaan says, I beseeched “O Rasoolallah tell me when and how shall I perform this Salaat(Prayer)” He said “O Salmaan, perform 10 Raka’ah on the first of it (month of Rajab) and in each Raka’ah recite Surah Al-Faatihah once, Surah Al Ikhlaas thrice and Surah Al Kafiroon thrice and after you do your Salaam (at the end of the Salaat) raise your hands and say:

“There is no God but Allah, The One Who has no partners. To Him belongs all His kingdom and all the praise, Who created life and death and Who is Alive without Death. From His hands (only) good is done and Who has Power over everything. Dearest Allah, no one can stop what You bestow and no one can give what You prevent. There is no one who can profit us except You the August among all. “Then spread your hands over your face.

In the middle of the month perform 10 Raka’ah and in each Raka’ah recite Surah Al Faatihah once, Surah Al Ikhlaas thrice, and Surah Al Kafiroon thrice and after you do your salaam (at the end of the Salaat) raise your hands towards the heavens and say:

There is no God but Allah, the One who has no partners. To Him belongs all His Kingdom and all the praise. Who created life and death and Who is Alive without Death. From His Hands (only) good is done and Who has Power over everything. The only God, Unique, Who has no needs . . . . . . He has no wife and no children. Then spread your hands over your face.

You perform this Salaat at the end of the month, 10 Raka’ah. In every Raka’ah recite Surah Al Faatihah one, Surah Al Ikhlaas thrice and Surah Al Kafiroon thrice. After you do your salaam, raise your hand towards the heaven and say:

“There is no God but Allah, The One Who has no partners. To Him belongs all His Kingdom and all the praise. Who created life and death and Who is Alive without Death. From His Hands (only) good is done and Who has Power over everything. And the blessing of Allah be upon the Master Muhammad and upon his pure progeny and there is no power greater than that of Allah Who is the Greatest in Might”. Then ask for your needs (to be fulfilled).

Your Supplication will be accepted and Allah will create 70 trenches between you and the Hell fire, the distance between each trench will be like it is between Heaven and Earth and written for you will be freedom from Fire of Hell, and from crossing the Bridge of Siraat.” When the Beloved of Allah, Hadrat Muhammad had finished, I fell down in prostration, weeping out of gratitude towards Allah for the abundance of the rewards.

Below is the dua to be read three times a day according to Sheykh Mevlana Nazim:

AuzuBillahiMinasheytanArrajim

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Allahumma inni astagfiruka min kulli ma tubtu lahu ilayka summa ‘udtu fih. Wa astagfiruka min kulli ma aradtu bihi wajhika wa khalatani fihi ma laysa fihi ridak. Wa astagfiruka linni`am allati taqawwaytu biha `ala ma’siyatik. Wa astagfiruka min azzunub allati la ya`lamuhu gayruka wa la yattali`u `alayha ahadun siwak wa la yasa`uha illa rahmatika wa la tunji minha illa magfiratuka wa hilmuk. La ilaha illa Anta Subhanaka inni kuntu min azzalimin.

Allahuma inni astagfiruka min kulli zulmin zalamtu bihi `ibadak. Fa ayyama `abdin min `ibadika aw amatin min ima’ika zalamtu fi badanihi aw `irdihi aw malihi fa atihi min khaza’inik allati la tanqus. Wa as’aluka an tukrimani birahmatik allati wasi`at kulla shay’in wa la tuhinani min ‘azabika wa ta`tiyani ma as’aluka fainni haqiqun birahmatika ya arhamur rahimin. Wa sallAllahu `ala Sayiddina Muhammadin wa `ala alihi wa sahbihi ajma`in. Wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahil Aliyyul Azim.

I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Sheytan

In the name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful

O Allah, I ask forgiveness of You for everything for which I repented to You then returned to. And I ask forgiveness of You for everything I displeased You with and all that concerns me with which You are displeased. And I ask forgiveness of You for the favors which I used for increasing my disobedience towards You. And I ask forgiveness of You for the sins which no one knows except You and no one sees except You and nothing encompasses except Your Mercy and nothing delivers from except Your forgiveness and clemency. There is no God except You alone. You are the Most High, and I was one of the [self] oppressors!

O Allah, I ask forgiveness of You for the injustice I committed against Your servants. Whatever of Your male or female servants whom I have hurt, physically or in their dignity or in their property give them of Your bounty which lacks nothing. And I ask You to honor me with Your mercy which encompasses all things. Do not humble me with Your punishment but give me what I ask of You, for I am in great need of Your mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful. May Allah send blessings upon Muhammad and upon all his companions. There is no power and no might except in Allah the High, the Exalted.

Blessings and Peace be upon Sayyidina Muhammad, his Family and Companions.

Dua of Wali Abbas

[edited from the original at http://www.deenislam.co.uk]

In addition to fasting, Sheykh recommended we do our minimum daily wird and add extra. For example, an extra thousand Surat Ikhlas a day is appropriate since Rajab is the month of Allah (JJ). Some are to do a couple of extra thousand “Allah” or “La Ilaha Illallah” by heart.

Sheykh Efendi spoke about the analogy of the bread, and how significant it is to our lives. We should take lesson.

Bread

Kubbe

Rajab Mubarak!

We ask our Lord’s forgiveness for past, present, and future misconduct and hope our works are accepted.

Our Holy Prophet Sayyidina Muhammad after Ramazan fasted most in Rajab.

Sheykh recommends fasting everyday until Thursday, which the Night of Regaib (Regaib Kandili) falls.
