On the occasion of the commencement of the holy month of Rajab of the Islamic Calendar, Khamenei.ir has published a review of the leader’s recommendations for making the most out of this blessed month.
The month of Rajab is an opportunity for self-edification and preparing oneself for the month of Ramadan. Ayatollah Khamenei recommends that “in this month, you should get close to the God of the creation as much as you can.”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 blessings of the month of Rajab are not confined to these [birthday anniversaries of the infallibles]. I advise myself and you to benefit from the blessings of the month of Rajab by strengthening our heartfelt relationship with Allah the Exalted. If all of us strengthen our relationship with God, many problems, obstacles and difficulties will be removed.
