Bismillahi Babuna - 'In the Name of Alllah is our Door' - 18th August 2012
Laylatul Jai'zah- 'The Night of Rewards' or night of Prize Giving
- The night of Eid is a night, which invocation (du`a) is not turned back
..Ibn `Abd al-Razzaq narrates in his Musannaf (4:317) that Ibn `Umar said:
There are five nights in which invocation (du`a) is not turned back: the night of Jum`a, the first night of Rajab, the night of mid-Sha`ban, and the two nights of `Eid.
1. The night of Jumma,-Laylatul Jummah - The Night of Jummah
2. The first night of Rajab, - Laylatul ar-Ragh'ib - The Night of Wishes
3. The night of mid-Sha`ban, Laylatul bara'ah - The Night Of Salvation - Freedom from Fire-(Urdu Shab-E-Baraat)
4/5. The two nights of `Eid,- Laylatul Ja'zah The Night of Prize Giving or the Night of Reward.
Thus Every Thursday is Holy, and you'll find most if not all Sufi Tariqahs gather on Thursday Nights around the world. Due to the fact its (Islamically Friday Night)
Note about deeds: "One's deeds are shown to Allah on Monday and Thursday, and they are shown to Prophets as well as fathers and mothers on Fridays, at which time they rejoice for the good deeds, and the latter increase the brightness and light of their faces. Therefore be wary of Allah and do not harm your dead." It is mentioned in a Hadith that the person who fasts on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays of every sacred month, he will receive the reward of making ibaadah for 700 years.
In "maraqil falah" the Sharh of "Nurul Idaah" in the chapter of "ihya'ul layali" (keeping vigil at night for ibadah), in which nights wherein it is mustahab to keep vigil for ibadah are mentioned, Ash-Shurunbulaali (may Allah have mercy on him) mentions the following hadith, "There are five nights in which du'a (supplication) is not rejected: the eve of Rajab, the 15th night of Sha'aban, the eve of Friday, on the eve of Eid Al-Fitr, and on the eve of Eid Al-Adha." (Maraqil Falah with Tahtawi pg. 401 Darul kutub al-ilmiyyah). This hadith, apart from being mentioned in the Al- Jami' of Suyuti, is also mentioned in the Shu'abul Iman of Baihaqi (hadith no. 3558 chapter: fee lailatil eidain wa yaumihimaa).
From The Rajab Letter by Sidi Amjad Tarsin
This is an excerpt from the book Kanz Al-Najah wa As-Suroor (“The Treasures of Success and Happiness”), a book highlighting the special qualities of each month. As the blessed and holy month of Rajab approaches, hopefully this information will be of use in allowing us all to appreciate it and benefit from it:
......Also, making du’a during the eve of the first of Rajab is highly recommended. The Prophet, peace and mercy be upon him, said, “There are five nights in which du’a (supplication) is not rejected: the eve of Rajab, the 15th night of Sha’aban, the eve of Friday, on the eve of Eid Al-Fitr, and on the eve of Eid Al-Adha.” [Al-Suyuti in his Al-Jami']
The following prayer is to be done on the night of the last Friday in Ramadhan, it equals a thousand months of worship, it covers all the worship one has missed in one’s lifetime.
Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddiq (radiallah tala anhu) said that this was a Sunnat prayer done to atone for all the past prayers that we missed since we were born. It is was equivalent to 400 years of missed past prayers, and Sayyidina Ali (radiallah tala anhu) said that it could even be rewarded as 1000 years of missed prayers. When asked what the excess years are for, since we live for only 60+ years, the Prophet (sallallahualayhiwasalam) said that it will be used to atone for the missed prayers of our parents and ancestors, as well as for people in our town or village.
It is a four raka’at prayer prayed with one tashahud and one salam at the end (the is no tashahud after two raka’ats, just continue from the 2nd to the 3rd raka’at without reading ‘At-tahiyyatul…’.
It is prayed with the intention:
I am praying this sunnah/nafil prayer, as atonement all the prayers I have missed in my lifetime since the day I was born, till this moment.
In the 1st raka’at, recite Surah Fatihah once, and Surah al-Qadr (Surah 97) 15 times.
In the 2nd raka’at, recite Surah al-Fatihah once, then Surah al-Kauthar (Surah 108) 15 times.
In the 3rd raka’at, recite Surah Fatihah once, and Surah al-Qadr (Surah 97) 15 times.
In the 4th raka’at, recite Surah al-Fatihah once, then Surah al-Kauthar (Surah 108) 15 times.
Then read Salawat, and the Quranic verse, “Innallahwa mala ikatahu, you sollu ‘alan nabi….”
Then recite 100 Salawat/Darood Shareef upon Rasulullah (sallallahualayhiwasalam)..
To read read Between Jummah Prayer and Asr Prayer - if you plan to pray sunnah you cannot pray anything after Fard of 'Asr so pray this sunnah salah 1st and only then can you pray the Fard of 'Asr as there is no pray after Fard of 'Asr salah.
