Lailatul Raghaib (Arabic: لَيْلَةُ الرَّغَائِبْ; Night of Wishes) falls on the first Thursday night of the month of Rajab and it is recommended to perform the a’maal of Lailatul Raghaib. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, that these prayers are a means of forgiveness and on the first night in our grave, Allah (swt) will send the reward of this prayer in the best, enlightened and eloquent form.
When inquired, the prayer will reply, “My Beloved! Glad tidings to you that you have found salvation from every hardship and horror.” When asked by the individual, “Who are you? By God! I haven’t seen anyone more beautiful than you, nor heard a word sweeter than that of yours or a fragrance than you.” In reply the prayer will say, “I am that prayer which you offered on the first Thursday of the month of Rajab. I have come to you, to be your companion in this loneliness, to remove from you your fright and horror. Be lest assured that my shelter will be with you until the blowing of the Horn of the Day of Judgement.”
