The Blessed Month of Rajab

Rajab, Sha’ban and Ramadhan are three special months that together make a season of worship. A special time to increase in our remembrance of Allah. In this month, we have been taught to try and recite laillaha illa/astaghfirullah and sura Iklhas as much as we can.

Activity: Surah Ikhlas Dhikr Recitation
The Holy Prophet (S) emphasised great reward in reciting Suratul Ikhlas in the month of Rajab. Make it a habit to recite with the child everyday, marking with a gold star. Leave the stickers in a visible place and encourage the child to try and remember throughout the day. Each recitation is 'like a shining light in the darkness, showing you the way to reach Allah'.
