With regard to fasting the month of Rajab, there is no saheeh hadeeth to indicate that there is any special virtue in fasting all or part of this month.

What some people do, singling out some days of Rajab for fasting, believing that they are better than others, has no basis in sharee’ah.

But there is a report from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which indicates that it is mustahabb to fast during the sacred months (and Rajab is one of the sacred months). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Fast some days of the sacred months and not others.” Narrated by Abu Dawood, 2428; classed as da’eef by al-Albaani in Da’eef Abi Dawood.

Even if this hadeeth were saheeh, it indicates that it is mustahabb to fast during the sacred months. So if a person fasts during Rajab because of this, and he also fasts in the other sacred months, there is nothing wrong with that. But singling out Rajab for fasting is not right.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (25/290):

As for fasting in Rajab in particular, the ahaadeeth concerning that are all da’eef (weak), and in fact mawdoo’ (fabricated). The scholars do not rely on any of them. They are not among the da’eef ahaadeeth which have been narrated concerning virtues, rather most of them are fabricated and false.
Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
Every hadeeth which mentions fasting in Rajab and praying during some of its nights is false and fabricated.” End quote from al-Manaar al-Muneef, p. 96
Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said in Tabyeen al-‘Ajab (p. 11)
There is no saheeh hadeeth that would count as evidence which speaks of the virtue of the month of Rajab, or that speaks of fasting this month or part of it, or of spending any particular night of it in prayer.
Shaykh Sayyid Saabiq (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Fiqh al-Sunnah (1/282):
Fasting in Rajab is no better than fasting in any other month, except that it is one of the sacred months. There is no report in the saheeh Sunnah to suggest that there is anything special about fasting in this month. Whatever has been narrated concerning that is not fit to be quoted as evidence. End quote.

:sl: sister, it seems that the quote you presented is against everything I mentioned on my first post. Subhanallah, what has this world become? Could the book I've been reading has false information? Why are there so many contradictions in my books, I feel that there is a great difference in understanding between the western part of Islam and eastern part of Islam. Could I've been sinning all along since I spread this falsehood?

my respecetd and noble brother may Allah love you and reward you with the highest level of the Paradise and all the Ummah Ameeeen

I know that you wanted to teach your brothers and sisters something beautiful and benefiting them in Dunay and Akirah and please our Lord with us and I know that you have an amazing and pure heart to do this and to think about your brothers and sisters ... may Allah be pleased with you and fill your heart with the endless happiness and satisfaction in this life and in the hereafter Ameeeen....

But the info you brought here are not correct according the Islamic law (shari`aa), and it is not your fault cause I know that you trusted the one who wrote that book may Allah guide him and forgive him for writing such things Ameeeen

all what you have mentioned from the Ahadeeth are weak and fake (lie)...

I am sorry but this is the religion of Allah and we can`t just stay and watch wrong things to be said about The Deen which Allah perfected for us ...

may Allah be pleased with you...Ameeen

and don`t worry my respected and noble brother about this cause Allah says:

"Allah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and foolishness and repent soon afterwards; it is they to whom Allah will forgive and Allah is Ever All-Knower, All-Wise. (17) "

Surat Annisaa

"When those who believe in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) come to you, say: "Salamun 'Alaikum" (peace be on you); your Lord has written Mercy for Himself, so that, if any of you does evil in ignorance, and thereafter repents and does righteous good deeds (by obeying Allah), then surely, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (54) "

Surat Al An`aam

"Then, verily! Your Lord for those who do evil (commit sins and are disobedient to Allah) in ignorance and afterward repent and do righteous deeds, verily, your Lord thereafter, (to such) is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (119)"

Surat An`Nahil

only repent to Allah and next time before writing anything always remember this Aayaah:

"O you who believe! If a rebellious evil person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done. (6)"

Surat Al Hujuraat

becareful next time and see from whom to take this Deen... may Allah purify all the Ummah from all sins and bless us with his endless satisfaction...Ameeen

I was thinking of creating a thread about Rajab ...and post this for my brothers and sisters...


Praise be to Allaah.


Firstly:

The month of Rajab is one of the sacred months of which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, the number of months with Allaah is twelve months (in a year), so was it ordained by Allaah on the Day when He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are Sacred (i.e. the 1st, the 7th, the 11th and the 12th months of the Islamic calendar). That is the right religion, so wrong not yourselves therein”

[al-Tawbah 9:36]

The sacred months are: Rajab, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram.

Al-Bukhaari (4662) and Muslim (1679) narrated from Abu Bakrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The year is twelve months, of which four are sacred: three consecutive months, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram, and Rajab Mudar which comes between Jumaada and Sha’baan.

These months are called sacred for two reasons:

1- Because fighting therein is forbidden unless initiated by the enemy
2- Because transgression of the sacred limits therein is worse than at other times.

Hence Allaah has forbidden us to commit sins during these months, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“wrong not yourselves therein”

[al-Tawbah 9:36]

Although committing sins is haraam and forbidden during these months and at other times, in these months it is more forbidden.
Al-Sa’di (may Allaah have mercy on him) said (p. 373):

In the phrase “wrong not yourselves therein”, the pronoun may be understood as referring to twelve months. Allaah states that He has made them a measure of time for His slaves, which they may use for worshipping Him, and thank Allaah for His blessings, and they serve the interests of His slaves, so beware of wronging yourselves therein.

The pronoun may also be understood as referring to the four sacred months, and this forbids them to wrong themselves in those months in particular, as well as it being forbidden to do wrong at all times, because it is more forbidden at this time, but it is worse at this time than at others. End quote.

In the past week my Indonesian friends have forwarded me those dhaif/mawdoo hadists regarding rajab fasting through blackberrmy messengers/emails/sms/ym etc.
And I have tried to tell them that those hadith are not shahih. ironically, most of those friends are doing the three days fastings (1,2,3 rajab) with expectation that their past sins all would be forgiven by Allah SWT, and yet they do not normally perform obligatory 5 times daily shalat.
Very sad indeed.

Thats what we get when we mix up qur'an and sunnah with "traditions".

Unfortunately, well meaning people have fabricated ahadeeth to try to make people fast more etc. A simiilar fabricated hadeeth was been made up about the Qur'an as well, i.e. giving extreme virtues of reading each surah, which are actually not true! And that was made up by a well meaning person after the time of the sahaba, who was disappointed that people had turned away from the Qur'an, and he wanted to bring them back to it, but he forgot or was ignorant of the grave sin associated with attributing something to the Prophet that he didn't actually say!

Nevertheless whoever made these ahadeeth up should not have attributed them to the Prophet :saws:. We have to be really careful about what we say came from the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam). In fact some of the sahaaba (radiallaahu anhum) did not narrate very many ahadeeth, despite spending a lot of time with the Prophet :saws:, and this was only because they were so afraid of making a mistake in the narration, as they knew the sin associated with it.

Narrated Salama:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire." (Saheeh Bukhari, Vol1, Book 3, no 109)

This is an authentic hadeeth recorded in al-Bukhari, regardless of whether the attribution was well-meant or not, i.e. we have to be really careful about what we say came from the Prophet :saws:.

I guess that as Muslims our collective problem (and I include myself in that first and foremost), is that we learn about worldly things but we haven't really studied seerah, or hadeeth or its science, so anybody that says, "this is a hadeeth" we believe it. At the very least ahadeeth should have a reference of which book they are from, and who narrated it from whom back to Rasoolullah :saws:, and also, let us stick to the reliable scholars. Generally speaking, personally alarm bells tend to ring for me when a hadeeth goes something like: "whoever does this, x will happen to him (in this world)". Some such ahadeeth may be authentic, but many of them aren't. May Allah give us all the tawfeeq to learn about the sunnah of Rasoolullah :saws:. Ameen

Jazaakallah khayr for editing your post. Remember as sis Amat Allah has pointed out, for what you did in ignorance and unintentionally, Allah is Ghafoorun Raheem, Forgiving, Merciful.
