Events of the holy month of Rajab

Indeed, the month of Rajab is among the great and blessed months. The narrations from the pure and infallible Imams, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all, unanimously highlight its significance and the need for its respect as a month of immense blessing. Allah, the Almighty, mentioned it as one of the sacred months in His Noble Book, saying: “Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred.

These four are consecutive: Dhul-Qa’dah, Dhul-Hijjah, and Muharram, and one is singular, which is Rajab. That’s why people call it Rajab al-Fard (the separate Rajab).

People also call Rajab al-Asabb because Allah, the Exalted, showers His servants with mercy and forgiveness during this month. They refer to it as al-Asamm (the silent) too, reflecting the quiet of no battles or clashing weapons since the Arabs refrained from warfare and bloodshed then. Pre-Islamic people revered these sacred months by forbidding fighting, and Islam’s arrival only heightened their sanctity and veneration.
