AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): On the occasion of the commencement of the holy month of Rajab of the Islamic Calendar, Khamenei news publishes one of Imam Khamenei’s statements regarding the significance of this blessed month.
All of us should congratulate one another on our divine opportunity to enter the month of Rajab once more. The month of Rajab is an opportunity to get close to divine values and to God. It is an opportunity to engage in self-edification.
The days which have been introduced as outstanding days in our narrations are all opportunities. Any opportunity is a blessing and any blessing requires that we thank God. Thanking God for His blessings means that we know blessings, behave according to their requirements, benefit from them, consider them as works of God and use them in His way. The month of Rajab is one of these blessings. The month of Sha'ban comes next and it is another blessing.
From the viewpoints of saints, believers and mystics, these two months are an introduction to the month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan is the month of transcendence, transcending, piety and purity and we need all these things. You should appreciate the month of Rajab.
In this month, you should get close to the God of the creation as much as you can. You should remember God and carry out your tasks for the sake of Him. You should make efforts and work for the sake of God.
