Salman al-Farsi RA Prayers of Rajab by Holy Prophet (SWS).
Salman al-Farsi (RA) asks how does he perform these 30 Rakats of Rajab
Hazret Salman (Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu) narrates that the Beloved of Allah, Sayyidina Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) said “O Salman,there is no Mumin (True Believer) and Muminah (Truly Believing Female) who performs 30 Rakaah in the month of Rajab and in each Raka’ah recites Surah Al Fatihah once, Surah Al-Ikhlas 3 times,and Sura Al Kafirun 3 times that Allah does not forgive them their sins and bestows rewards upon them, as upon a person who has fasted a whole month.
He/she becomes among those who will be steadfast in their salaat in the year which is to come. For him/herself, the deeds of the day is equal to that of the martyr. He/she will be raised with the Martyrs of the 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/her, His Paradise and bestow His Nearness upon him. Hazret Jibreel (alaihi as-salaam) informed me “O Muhammad this is the sign between you & the Mushrikeen-Polytheists and the Munafiqin (Hypocrites) because the Munafiq does not perform this Salaat.”
Hazret Salman (Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu) says, I beseeched “O Rasulallah tell me when and how shall I perform this Salaat (Prayer)” He said “O Salman, perform ten Rakaah on the first of it (month of Rajab) and in each Raka’h recite Surah Al-Fatiha once, Surah Al Ikhlas thrice and Surah Al Kafirun thrice and after you do your Salaam (at the end of the Salat) 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 ten Rakaah and in each Rakaah recite Surah Al Fatiha once, Surah Al Ikhlas thrice, and Surah Al Kafirun 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, ten Rakaah.In every Rakaah recite Surah Al Fatiha once, Surah Al Ikhlas thrice and Surah Al Kafirun 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 (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) 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 seventy 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, Sayyidina Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) had finished, I fell down in prostration, weeping out of gratitude towards Allah for the abundance of the rewards.
Hazret Salman Farsi (Radi Allahu ta’ala anhu) narrates that the Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa aalihi wa Sallam) of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) said that there is a day in the month of Rajab on which if a person fasts and does Qiyamul Lail (night vigil) on that night, he will receive rewards like a person who fasts for 100 years and does Qiyaamul Lail for nights of 100 years. This is the night of the 27th and the day of the 27th Rajab. This is the day on which Sayyidina Muhammad Mustafa (Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa Sallam) was confirmed night journey to meet his Lord (Qurb – Station of nearness) and visit His creation, Angels and all Heavens and Hells and for the Sake of Sayyidina Muhammad (SWS) all punishment in the graves shall be lifted in the night.
In the book, The Last Prophet (SWS) by Haji Amina Adil (KS), they state the Hadiths have been narrated in six (6) collections of Hadith of the story of the Holy Prophet’s (SWS) Miraj as it was told to them by no less than twenty (20) of the venerable and esteemed Companions (RA) who heard it from the King of Prophets (SWS) told it to them himself.
This Night Journey (Miraj) was just not one but a single account and the number is best known by Allah Almighty and His Rasul (SWS) but Grandsheikh Abdullah al-Faiz ad-Dagestani (KS) statement reveals further meetings (22,000) with His Lord of Sayyidina Muhammad (SWS) during his lifetime.
