27th Rajab - Night of Baysat and Mairaj of Prophet Muhammad(sawaw)

Night of 27th Rajab marks the anniversary of the Baysat of our
beloved Prophet Mohammad(sawaw). Baysat is the event of formal
declaration of prophet-hood by Prophet Mohammad(sawaw). It is also
the night of Mairaj which is the ascension of Prophet Mohammad(sawaw)
to heavens. A separate newsletter will be sent on that topic later.
The current newsletter is intended to inform about the special aamal
of this important and virtuous night.

It seems appropriate to mention at this stage that the Ahl-e-
Tashiyyuh (Shias) believe that the Prophet(sawaw) is the first and
foremost creation of Allah(swt) and He is the Prophet ever since his
creation. The arrival of Wahi at the age of 40 is only a mark where
Allah(swt) decided that Prophet Mohammad(sawaw) should declare the
message of Allah(swt) openly and start the process of inviting people
to salvation.

Special aamal of Shab-o-roz-e-Baysat (night and day of BAYSAT)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Special aamal have been prescribed by Masoomeen(a.s.) for this night
which is the night between the 26th and 27th of Rajab. The aamal are
as follows:

1. Take bath towards the start of the evening of 27th. (end of the
day of 26th)

2. Observe fast on the day of 27th – It is one of the 4 most
recommended fasts in the whole Islamic year and according to a saying
of Imam Mahammad Taqi(a.s.), its reward is equivalent to fasting of
60 years.

3. Recite salawat in abundance – Allahumma Salle ala Mohammadin wa
aal-e-Mohammad.

4. Recite Ziaraat of Prophet Mohammad(sawaw) and Imam Ali(a.s.).
Both these ziaraat are available here
http://www.ziaraat.com/ziasum.php.

5. Perform 12 Rakaat prayers during the night of 27th near mid-night
in sets of 2 rakaat each. In each rakaat recite Sura-Hamd and then
recite either Sura Mohammad, Sura Naas or Suar Yaseen (according to
different traditions in different books).

6. After completing all the 12 rakaat, keep sitting in the same
position and recite 7 times each
- Sura Fatiha,
- Sura Ikhlas,
- Sura Nass,
- Sura Kafiroon,
- Sura Falaq,
- Sura Qadr and
- Ayatul Kursi (until - hum feeha khalidoon)

7. After these suras recite the following dua:
ALHAMDO LILLA-HIL LAZI LAM YAT-TAKHIZ SAHIBATAWOON
WA LA WALADAN
WA LAM YAKUL-LAHU SHAREEKUN FIL MULKI
WA LAM YAKUL LAHU WALIYUM MINAZ-ZULLI

WA AALE MUHAMMAD
WA AN TAF-AL BI MA ANTA AHLUHU

8. In addition to the above, another lengthy dua is also prescribed
in the Mafatih-ul-Jinaan (Keys of the Heaven). The dua begins with:
ALLAHUMMA INNI AS-ALOKA BIT-TAJALLI AL-AZAMI

Mafateehul Jinnan can be found in the online books section at:
