The sacred Lailatur Rwaghaeeb

The sacred Lailatur Rwaghaeeb is the night preceding the first Friday of the month of Rajab. In this sacred night, Noor-i-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam took ‘Tashrif’ (appeared) supernaturally in the sacred ‘Rehem Shareef’ (womb) of His mother Hazrat Amina Alaihas Salaam. The dignity, blessings and significance of this Mubarak night is much higher than those of the nights of Shab-e-Qadar and Shab-e-Baraat.” Subhan Allah!.
Lailatur Rwaghaeeb is one such blessed night to perform Tasbih-Tahlil, Dua-Durud Shareef, Zikr-Askar, Salat-Salaam, Tawbah-Istighfar, reciting from the Qur’an Shareef, Milad Shareef and Qiyaam, donations and khairah and of saying prayers etc. Overall, this is a night of blessings, prosperity, peace and salvation.

Importance:
The Imaam of ‘Hamboli Madhab’, Hazrat Imaam Ahmad Bin Hamble Rahmatullahi Alaihi, in explaining the significance and blessings of this Mubarak night, says, ‘When Hazrat Imaam Ahmad Bin Hamble Rahmatullahi Alaihi declared that “The dignity, blessings and significance of ‘Lailatur Rwaghaeeb’ is much higher than those of the nights of Shab-e-Qadar and Shab-e-Baraat”. Subhan Allah!’ Then, the contemporary Imaam and Faqih came up and inquired, “O Hazrat Imaam Ahmad Bin Hamble Rahmatullahi Alaihi! Allah Pak in the Qur’an Shareef and Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam in the Hadis Shareef Narrated about the blessings and significance of the nights of Shab-e-Qadar and Shab-e-Baraat. But nowhere there are any descriptions of the importance of ‘Lailatur Rwaghaeeb’. Then on what grounds could you declare that the dignity, blessings and significance of ‘Lailatur Rwaghaeeb’ is much higher than those blessed nights?”
Hazrat Imaam Ahmad Bin Hamble Rahmatullahi Alaihi replied, “Well, it is true that the blessings of Shab-e-Baraat and Shab-e-Qadar have been narrated in the Qur’an Shareef and Hadis Shareef. But Shab-e-Baraat and Shab-e-Qadar and other blessed nights have been created for the sake of Lailatur Rwaghaeeb. This means that if there was no Lailatur Rwaghaeeb, there wouldn’t have been any Lailatul Baraat or Lailatul Qadar and similar other blessed nights. That’s the reason that the importance of Lailatur Rwaghaeeb is much more than any and all of those blessed nights. Subhan Allah!”
In the Qur’an Shareef, Allah Pak Declared in the first verse of Sura Kawsar, “Verily, I have bestowed ‘Kawsar’ or ‘KhaireKaseer’ unto You”. Subhan Allah! In interpreting ‘Kawsar’, several meanings have come up. Firstly, by the word ‘Kawsar’, ‘Houze Kawsar’ has been meant. ‘Houze Kawsar’ is one such well that contains such sweet and chilled water that anyone drinks it once, shall never feel thirsty until entering Jannat (heaven).”Subhan Allah! Secondly, another meaning of ‘Kawsar’ is ‘KhaireKaseer’ which means something better, rather the very best. This bears that whatever has been given by Allah Pak to Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam is best in all aspects for all ages.
Not only that, whatever had come in touch with Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, had turned out to be the best. Imaam, Mujtahid and Awlia-i-Kiram Rahmatullahi Alaihim had come to agreement or ‘Izma’ made that the soil Mubarak in the Rawza Mubarak of Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam touching His Body Mubarak is million times more precious than ‘Arsh-e-A’azim’! Subhan Allah!” In fact the soil did not have any price or value but then just for coming in touch with Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, it had been blessed with the price, benefits and status more than that of the ‘Arsh-e-A’azim’.
Likewise, there are so many vegetables available in the markets everywhere. No vegetable has any connection with Imaam (belief). But a gourd has. The reason being: Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam Himself liked a gourd and He fondly ate it. Therefore, as per Qur’an and Sunnah, Imaam and Mujtahid have delivered ‘fatwa’ that if anyone would say, ‘I don’t like a gourd’ shall turn to be a sheer non-believer. Virtually, a gourd does not have a status. Just having been related with Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam, it got that price and status and that’s why it has been imposed to have a liking for gourds as part of Imaan.
The same way, Lailatur Rwaghaeeb has come to be more blessed than those of the Lailatul Qadar or Lailatul Baraat and other blessed nights just because of the reasons that it has direct links with Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam.

Amol/Activities:
In Lailatur Rwaghaeeb one should perform Tasbih-Tahlil, Dua-Durud Shareef, Zikr-Askar, Salat-Salaam, Tawbah-Istighfar, reciting from the Qur’an Shareef, Milad Shareef and Qiyaam, donations and khairah and of saying prayers etc. As Muslims, every Muslim government should declare day-offs on such blessed days of Islamic traditions as a must and that also the non-Muslim government should follow them in order to allow the Muslim population to realize the gravity of these days and facilitate them to gather its full benefits.
