The month of Jamaadil-Awwal


The 5th month of the Islamic calendar is the month of Jamaadil-Awwal (Jamaadil-oulaa).

The very day the moon is visible, read after the namaz Isha, 4 raka’ats of namaz nafils as follows: In each raka’at, after sourah al-Faatihah, read 7 times the sourah an-Nawsr (“Izaa jaaa-a naswrullaahi wal fathh”). After the salaam, read 25 times this duah: “Astaghfirullaaha yaa zal jalaali wal ikraam min jamii’ iz-zunoubi wal aathaam ” (I ask for forgiveness, Ô the one who has anger and kindness, of all my sins and bad habits). Then, made your du’as (supplications). Insha-Allah they will be qaboul (accepted), Aameen.
