A Series of Reminders About The Month of Rajab – No.1

It Is Not Permissible To Single Out The Month Of Rajab To Fast

Ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله said: “As for singling out (the month of) Rajab for fasting, then all of the ahādīth are weak. Rather, they are fabricated and the People of Knowledge do not rely on any of them. However it has been authentically narrated that ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab used to strike the hands of the people so as to force them to eat in Rajab and he used to say: ‘Do not liken it to Ramadhān’.”
