Are There Virtues Connected To Fasting In The Islamic Month Of Rajab – Various Scholars

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, “As for fasting in Rajab in particular, the ahaadeeth concerning that are all da’eef (weak), and in fact mawdoo’ (fabricated). The scholars do not rely on any of them. They are not among the da’eef ahaadeeth which have been narrated concerning virtues, rather most of them are fabricated and false. In Al-Musnad (Imam Ahmed) and elsewhere there is a hadeeth which says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined fasting the sacred months, namely Rajab, Dhu’l-Qa’dah, Dhu’l-Hijjah and Muharram, but this has to do with fasting during all of them, not just Rajab.” Ref: Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (25/290)

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, “Every hadeeth which mentions fasting in Rajab and praying during some of its nights is false and mawdoo’ (fabricated).” Ref: Al-Manaar al-Muneef, p. 96 

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said, “There is no saheeh hadeeth that would count as evidence which speaks of the virtue of the month of Rajab, or that speaks of fasting this month or part of it, or of spending any particular night of it in prayer.” Ref: Tabyeen al-‘Ajab (p. 11)
