Last Jumaat in Rejab


O son, be sure to mark your calendar on the last Friday in Rejab.

The practice we learned to do on this special Friday (today) is to recite:
Ahmadur Rasulullah
Muhammadur Rasulullah
35 times
when the khatib (the imam who gives the Friday sermon) is standing on the mimbar (pedestal).

It is said that for this small act that you do, Allah, for the sake of His Beloved s.a.w would guarantee much provision for you for the entire year.

Jumaah Mubarrak!

  1. What does this mean please?

  2. Salam,
    The last friday in the month of Rejab/Rajab is considered to be auspicious. So the tradition is to recite 'Ahmadur Rasulullah, Muhammadur Rasulullah' 35 times when the khatib/imam gives sermons/khutbah on the mimbar/raised platform where imam stands. It is a matter of timing and the secrets of auspicious times.
    Wallahu a'lam.
    I am sorry I cannot elaborate more than that cos that's all I know. We listen and we try to follow. InshaAllah.

  3. I forgot to mention that this practise is attributed to a saying by Shaykh Ali al-Ajhuri.
    Wallahu a'lam.

  4. Thank you. I was just curious behind the meaning behind this.
