An unauthentic virtue of a specific salah on the twenty seventh (27th) of Rajab

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Could you kindly confirm the following Hadith:

“Whoever prays twelve rakats on the night of twenty seventh of Rajab, in every rakat recites Surah Fatihah and any other Surah from Quran. After every two rakats recites Tashahhud and ends with salam. Thereafter recites one hundred times: “Subhan Allahi Wal Hamdulillahi Wa Laa ilaah illal Lahu Wallah Hu Akbar”, “Astagfirullah” one hundred times and sends one hundred salutations (durud) on Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) Thereafter makes du’a for his/her religious and worldly matters and fasts the next day. Then Allah Ta’ala will accept all of his/her dua’s. As long as dua’s are not made of sins”



This narration has been declared as extremely weak and a fabrication.

(Refer: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 90 and Al Adab Fi Rajab, pg. 47. Also see: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar: 1296)

There is no specific form of salah to be recited on the twenty seventh of Rajab. To specify a form of salah for this night without substantiation from the Sunnah is an innovation (bid’ah).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
