(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The Leader of the African Shia Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky reminded Members on the significance of the Month of Rajab. He called on Muslims to double effort in the blessed month of Rajab for its merit and significance. He said acts of worship in the month attract forgiveness from Allah. He made the call during weekly Tafseer of the Holy Quran on Wednesday the 16th of May 2012 at Husainiyyah Baqiyyatullah Zaria.
He said the Month of Rajab marks the beginning of spiritual season which ends in Ramadan and a Muslim who observes acts of worship and seeking of forgiveness in the months of Rajab, Shaban and Ramadan will be forgiven of all his sin- which qualifies him to be free of all sins as the name of month of Shawwal signifies.
He added that observing fasting, even if not for all the days in the month as each day has its particular merit, is a commendable act as well as the month of Shaban as observing fasting in these months is the Sunnah of the Prophet(SAWA).
He Further noted that by the coming Sunday the month of J/Akhir will be 29 which shows that the 1st of Rajab will be Monday the 21 of may 2012. He therefore called on Muslims to be mindful of the these months and act wisely.
