Night of Baysat and Mairaj of Prophet Muhammad

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 KAB-BIRHU TAKBEERA.

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-AZAMIMafateehul Jinnan can be found in the online books section at: http://www.rizvia.com/findbook.asp?Escritor=All&Tema=Duas%2FZiaraat&orderby=titulo&idioma=All&srchwhat=All&submit=+Display+Books.9. Then go to sajdah and recite the following 100 times:ALHAMDU LILLHIL LAZI HADANA LI MARIFATEHIWA KHASAN-NA BI WILAYATIHIWA WAF-FAQNA LI TA-ATIHISHUKRAN SHUKRAN10.
