Today, Friday (12/1/2024), marks the last day of the month of Jumadil Akhir in the Islamic or Hijri calendar. The Muslim community will soon enter the month of Rajab 1445 H/2024, which falls on Saturday (13/1/2024). This means that tonight is the night of 1 Rajab.

As known, one of the honored months and a special month to Allah SWT is the month of Rajab. In the Islamic calendar, Rajab is the seventh month. The word Rajab comes from the word at-tarjib which means ‘to honor’.

Allah has designated certain sacred months, and Rajab is one of them. The other sacred months are Dzulqa’dah, Dzulhijjah, Muharram, and Rajab. In these sacred months, Muslims are encouraged to engage in various good deeds. During these sacred months, Muslims are also prohibited from engaging in warfare or any other forbidden acts.

Ibnu Abbas RA added that those four months are dedicated because they are considered sacred months. In other words, committing sinful acts during those months is considered a major sin, while performing righteous deeds during that time will earn great rewards. The sanctity of the forbidden months has been explained in the Quran, Surah At-Taubah, verse 36. Allah SWT says, “Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them.”
