((Allah bless us in Rajab and Shaaban; and convey us to Ramadan))
((Verily time has come full circle like it was on the day that Allah created the heavens and earth. The year is twelve months, four of which are sacred. Three of them are consecutive: Dhu’l-Qiidah, Dhu’l-Hijjah, and Muharram. And Rajab (of Mudar) between Jumada and Shaaban)).Reported by Abi Bakrah.

Certainty vs. Uncertainty in Rajab and Shaaban-Ar draft G1
“Therefore, you can be certain that your sincere effort and supplication, your dedication of yourself to the renewal of your relationship with the Divine in this sacred season will not go unnoticed. More so, your anxiousness for the wellbeing of the oppressed, and your concern for their safety will not go unheeded. We would be remiss to forego these assurances for a mere reliance on other strategems of less guarantee alone. Whatever our preoccupations may be, all of us will be wrapped up in Ramadan. Let’s make it programmatic.” Sidi Jihad Hashim Brown
