The 13th, 14th and 15th of Rajab-ul-Asabb are known as the ‘Ayyamul Beez’ - ‘the days of the white nights’ as these are the days in which the full moon is visible throughout the night. ‘Beez’ literally refers to ‘white’ in Arabic (from abyad) and by extension light, and so the connotation is that these are days in which the moonlight is so bright and continuous that night turns to day. These three days are particularly significant in the month of Rajab which is the month of Maulana Ali SA – just as Shaban is the month of Rasulullah SA, and Ramadan the month of Allah Ta’ala.
The 19th Dai Syedna Idris Imaduddin RA composed an entire Risalat “Risalat al-Bayan li ma wajab fi Ma’rifati Shahre Rajab” in which he did bayaan on the deeper meanings of the month of Rajab and the significance of these three days in particular. In this Risalat, Syedna Idris RA first explains the origin of the amal (roza, namaz, das surat and Sadaqalla) we do in these three days. In the time of Imam Ja’far-us-Sadiq SA, Umm Da’ud (the mother of Da’ud) went in the Imam’s Hazrat. Her son, Dau’d, also had a radaa’at (dudh nu mehram – kinship through nursing with milk) with one of the Imams wives. Imam Ja’farus Sadiq enquired about Da’ud and his mother informed the Imam that her son was imprisoned by Abud-dawaneeq (the Abbasid khalifa) in Iraq since a long time. The Imam advised her, “When the great month of Rajab approaches, and it is a month in which prayers are answered, fast on the 13th, 14th and 15th days. On the third day do full ablution (ghusul) before zawaal (time of Zohor namaz) and pray eight Rak’ats Salat al-Zawaal. Then pray Zohor. After Zohor pray two Rak’ats in which you pray the Surahs Qul Huwallahu Ahad and Qul Ya ayyuhal-kaafirun. Then pray Asar. Then, facing the qibla recite Surat al-Hamd 100 times and Surat Qul Huwallahu Ahad 100 times. Then pray the ten Surahs (An’aam, Kahf, Yaseen, Saffat, Hameem Sajda, Hammeem Ain Seen Qaaf, Dukhaan, Fath, Waqi’a, Tabaarak and finally from Iza al-samaa’un Shaqqat to then end and al-Hamd). Then pray a doa (the Sadaqallah doa) till the end.” Click here to read more.
