Rajab 💜 ☪

. The Holy Prophet () said ❝Rajab is the great month of Allah (ﷻ). No other month equals it in sanctity and merit. During this month fighting against the infidels is prohibited. Indeed Rajab is the month of Allah, Shaban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah. Surely whoever fasts one day in Rajab secures Allah’s greatest pleasure, distances himself from the wrath of Allah and one gate of Hell is closed for him.❞


. Imam Kazim (عليه السلام) said ❝For those who fast a day in Rajab, the fire of Hell recedes from them a distance of one year walking and whoever fasts for three days in Rajab is certain to enter Paradise.❞

. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝ Rajab is the month of forgiveness therefore seek much forgiveness during this month.❞


. Imam Kazim (عليه السلام) said ❝Rajab is a river in Paradise which is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. Whoever fasts one day in Rajab will be given a drink from this river.❞


. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝Allah (ﷻ)has exalted the month of Rajab and given it a stupendous sanctity taking it upon Himself to honour those who fast it. Whoever fasts a single day of the latter part of Rajab will be saved from the severity of the throes of death, from the horrors encountered after death and the torment of the grave. Whoever fasts two days of the latter part of Rajab will cross over the Sirat (bridge) with ease and whoever fasts for three days will be secure from the terrors and calamities of the Day of greatest terror and will be given immunity from Hell.


. The Holy Prophet () said ❝Whoever recites ‘la ilaha il Allah’ 1000 times during the month of Rajab, Almighty Allah (ﷻ) will decide for them 100,000 rewards and award them 100 houses in Paradise.❞

. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝Whoever recites Surah al-Ikhlas 100 times on a Friday in Rajab will be given such a light that they will enter Paradise.

28th Rajab: Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and his caravan leave Medina

They say that when you enter the vicinity of Karbala al-Muqaddas and first lay eyes upon the Golden Dome overpowering the skyline, you quickly come to notice that one is missing.
Although both the Shrines are built on the same leveled ground and are of the same size, only the dome of Hadhrat Abbas (as) is visible to the guests entering this Holy city.

When the scholars were asked why the dome of Aba Abdillah (as) is seemingly hidden from view, the reply came saying:

“Till today, those who wish to visit their Imam (as) must first go through his guardian, Abal Fadhl al-Abbas (as).”

Do you know why Abal Fadel Al-Abbas was called (سبع القنطرة) The Bridge Beast?

When he was 14years old the fitnah of the khawarij happened where they murdered Imam Ali’s friend Abdallah Ibn Khabab and his wife taking out her unborn baby from the womb and beheading it on her body
Imam Ali(as) was very upset upon hearing this that he called out
Only me and my sons will take vengeance for this
So they went to find them and it seemed that these murderous Khawarij had taken refuge in a barrack with 3 gates and a bridge
So Imam Ali(as) took the main gate and told imam Hassan to take the west gate and Imam Hussein to take the east one
As they were heading there Imam Ali heard someone behind him
It was Al-Abbas
He asked him: my son what are you doing here
He replied: who did u send out O'Ameerul Mu'mineen?
The Imam said: I sent your brothers
Al-Abbas said: you assigned gates for them but where is my gate
The Imam said: you are still young my son
Al-Abbas replied: O’ Ameerul Mu'mineen did you not fight for The Prophet of Allah when you were my age
Imam Ali(as) said: but there is only that small bridge left all the gates are taken
Al-Abbas replied: It is mine and I am for it
At this point Imam Ali(as) broke the main gate and roared like a lion making the khawarij run in fear to the east gate where Imam Hussein called out
“Where are you running to when I am the son of Ameerul Mu'mineen?”
So they ran to the west gate and Imam Hassan called out
“Where to when I am the son of the leader of the resplendent and pure”
So the Khawarij said we must go to the bridge otherwise Ali and his sons will destroy us
They get to the bridge and find a child sitting with a sword in his hand he looks at them and says
“I am the son of the red death”
When Imam Ali catches up he finds Al-Abbas(as) sitting on the bridge surrounded by all the khawarijs’ heads
So The Imam(as) kisses him on his forehead.
