“Laylat al-Raghaa’ib” (Night of Desires)
The first Friday Night in Rajab is called ‘Laylat al-Raghaa’ib (Night of Desires).
There is a special prayer to be offered on this night.
As is mentioned by Sayyid Ibn Tawus, in his book of ‘Iqbal al-A`mal’ and `Allamah al-Majlisi in ‘Ijazat Bani-Zuhrah.’ The reward for those who offer this prayer is that a great number of his sins are forgiven and that on the first night in the grave, Almighty Allah sends him the reward of this prayer in the form of a life form who says to him, “Good tidings, You have escaped all hardships.” The offerer of this prayer will then ask him about his character, saying, “Who are you? Indeed, I have never seen such good looking face, and I have never heard such fluent words, and I have never smelled such nice scent.” He will be answered, “I am the reward of the prayer that you offered at so-and-so night in so-and-so month in so-and-so year at the town of so-and-so. I am here now so as to settle your right, to entertain you in your loneliness, and to save you from this cheerless situation. When the Trumpet shall be blown (declaring the Resurrection Day), I will cast a shadow over your head in the Resurrection Court. So, be happy, for you shall never be deprived of goodness.” One should also observe fast on the first Thursday in Rajab.
Method to Offer Prayer:
Between Maghrib and Isha Prayers, one should offer a twelve Rak`ah prayer each couple of which is separated by Taslim (i.e. the concluding part of a prayer). In each Rak`ah, one should recite the Surah Fatiha once, the Surah Qadr three times, and the Surah Tawheed twelve times.
After finishing this prayer, one should then recite the following 70 times:
