Blessings in the Month of Shaaban


The Month of Rajab

Rajab, being the seventh month of the Islamic calendar is a stepping stone to the auspicious months of Sha’baan and Ramadhaan. Rajab is from the Ashurul Hurum (Sacred months), where the rewards of virtuous deeds are increased. When the moon of Rajab was sighted RasulullahSallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam would recite the following Dua:

اَللّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا فِيْ رَجَبٍ وَشَعْبَانَ وَبَلِّغْنَا رَمَضَان

“Allahumma baarik lana fee rajabin wa Sha’baana wa ballighnaa Ramadaan”

Oh Allah! grant us blessings in the month of Rajab and Shabaan, and make us reach the month of Ramadhaan” (Shu’abul-Imaan & Ibnus Sunni)

This Dua should be recited regularly in the month of Rajab and Sha’baan. In preparation for Ramadhan, the relevance of

 

Rajab maybe understood as the month to sow seeds (good actions),

Sha’ban is the month in which we should water those seeds (with tears of remorse) and

Ramadhan is the month in which we reap the harvest

May Allah Ta’ala privilege us with witnessing Ramadhaan and grant us the ability to spend it in a manner that is most pleasing to Him, Aameen.
