Tonight is the first night of Rajab.

اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ لَنَا في رَجَبٍ وَ شَعْبَانَ وَ بَلِّغْنا رَمَضَانَ

“O Allah bless us in Rajab and Sha`bān and enable us to reach Ramadan!"

There are many blessings in Rajab. I'll try to find a good article on it iA.

Updated with article:

Merits of Rajab


By the bounty of Allah we will soon be entering the blessed month of
Rajab. Rajab is one of the four sacred months. It stands alone, unlike
the other three which come together. The Prophet (may Allah bless him
and grant him peace) said: “Rajab is the month of Allah, Sha`bān is my
month, and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah.4]



Good Deeds in Rajab


The reward of our good actions is multiplied in the sacred months, so
it is recommended to do as many good deeds as possible. The Messenger
of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) recommended fasting at
least some days in each of the sacred months. Some of the Companions,
among them Sayyiduna `Umar and his son `Abdullah and al-Sayyida
`A’isha, liked to make `Umrah in Rajab.
At the same time bad deeds are also more serious in the sacred months
so we must do our utmost to avoid any wrongdoings.
A sacred month is similar to a sacred place. It is recommended to
bathe and purify oneself before entering the haram of Mecca and while
in it one is more conscious of the weight of one’s actions. Likewise
with a sacred month – we try to enter it in a state of purity and we
try to maintain that purity throughout through doing good and avoiding
evil.
O Allah bless us in Rajab and Sha`ban and enable us to reach Ramadan.
Peace and blessings upon the one who guided us to all good and warned
us of all evil, our Master Muhammad and his blessed family and
Companions and all those that follow his guidance until the end of
time.

Lata’if al-Ma`rif by Imam Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali. May Allah reward Sidi
Amjad Tarsin for the original translation.

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

As was mentioned at our Friday khutbah this week, Rajab is also the month of the Isra and Miraj.

Momentous obviously for many things but also a reminder of how Allah blessed His Servant saw after the year of sadness he had just experienced after losing both his wife and uncle.
