Excellence of Month of Rajab

Rajab is a month with blessings beyond out imagination and a month in which Duas are sure to be answered. We must respectthis month and busy ourselves in as much Ibaadat as is possible within our capacity, so that we may take advantage of the numerous blessings of this month and so that we may attain the Pleaaure and Mercyof Allah.

Allah has stated in the Holy Quran.

"Undoubtedly, the number of months with Allah is twelve in the Book of Allah since the day He created the heavens and the earth. Four of them are sacred. This is the right religion. Therefore, do not wrong yourselves in these months. (Surah 9, Vers 36)

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, There is no doubt that Rajab is one of the sacred months. It was in this month that Allah put Hazrat Nuh aboard the Ark. Hazrat Nuh then spent th month fasting aboard the Ark, and he ordered thosw who accompanied him to keep the same fast, so Allah delivered them and kept them safe from drowning, while He used the flood to purifythe earth by ridding it of unbelief and tyranny.

This beautiful month of Rajab has several names two of which will be explaind here. Once after the new moon ofor Rajab had been sighted, Hazrat Uthman Ghani went onto the pulpit during the Jumuah prayer. After he delivered the Khurba he went on to say, "Well now this is the Deaf month of Allah".The reason it was called deaf month of Allah is beause as soon as the new moon was sighted ofr Rajab, the Arabs, who were perpetuallyengaged in feuding with each other, would lay down their weapons. As a result the noise of the clashed of arms and spears would not to be heard for the duration of the month. A man might have gone outin search ofhis father's killer, but if he spotted hum during Rajab he would not confront him. He would act as if he could neither see him nor hear him.
