The first Day of Rajab, which not only marks 60 days until Ramadan, but is one of the four sacred months.
When ever this month arrived the Prophet ﷺ would start to make this dua: اللهم بارك لنا في رجب وشعبان وبلغنا رمضان Oh Allah bless us in Rajab and Sha’aban and allow us to reach Ramadan
The Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said ‘Rajab is the month of Allah, Sha‘ban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah’. Rajab is also the month in which the noble parents of the Prophet ﷺ were married and when Aminah, the noble mother of the Prophet ﷺ became pregnant with the Best of Creation ﷺ, and when the miraculous Night Journey & Ascension (Al-Isra’ wal-Mi’raj), which took place and we were given the prayer – Salat.
Rajab is also known as the Month of Tawbah (repentance) and the Month of Istighfar (seeking forgiveness), and it has been narrated, ‘Seek much forgiveness from Allah in Rajab because in every hour (of the month) Allah frees people from the Fire’. [Dailami]
For this reason, the scholars say that Rajab is the month of seeking forgiveness, Sha‘ban is the month of bestowing prayers upon the Prophet (saw), and Ramadan is the month of the Qur’an
