Rajab Shaban and Ramdhan are the months of great Fazilath. Mohammad Sallallah -u-Alehi Wa Alehi Wa Sallam(P.B.U.H) said "That the month of Rajab is very great and no other month could reach to the Ihtheram (respect) and Fazilath of this month. Battle with kuffar is haram in this month. Rajab is Allah's month. Shaban is my month and Ramadhan is my Ummah's month. Whoever fasts for a day in this month Allah will keep Azaab ( punishment ) away from him and he will please Allah, and one of the many doors of hell will be closed on him".
Imam Mose-E-Kazim (A.S) said that whoever fasts for a day in Rajab the fire of hell will be kept away from him for at least the distance of a year. And if a person fasts for three days then Jannath (Heaven) will be wajib on him.
Rasule-Khuda (peace be upon him) said That Rajab is a name of a stream in Heaven, which is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. And if any person fasts for a day in this month he will drink water from this stream.
Imam Jafar-E-Sadiq (A.S) said that Rasule-Khuda (peace be upon him) said that this month of Rajab is the month of Asthaqgfar for my Ummah. Thus ask for Allah's forgiveness for our sins in this Mubarak month. Allah is most forgiving and most merciful. And the other name for Rajab is Asabb because Allah's Rehmath on Ummah is more in this month, so one should recite Astaghfirullah Wa Asalhut Tawbah a lot.
Imam Jafar-E-Sadiq (A.S) said whoever keeps one fast in the last days of Rajab, Allah will save him from the hardship of dying (sakrath-e-moth) and from azaab-e-moth. And if a person fasts on the last two days of Rajab, he will pass Pul-E-Sirath with ease. And if a person fasts on the last three days he will be saved from the khawf of Qayamath and hardships of this day and will be saved from hell.
Imam Zainul Abideen (A.S) said if a person cannot keep fast in this month he should recite the following Tasbeeh-----
Subhan-al illahil Jaleeli Subhana mal-la yanbaghit tasbeehu illa lahu Subhanal a-aazzil akrami subhana mal laisal izza wa-hua- lahu ahl.
