Roughly translated as ‘to respect’, Rejab is one of the 4 sacred months in which battles and warfare are prohibited in Islam, a tradition that stems back from pre-Islamic days in the Arabic peninsula.
Of course the month’s significant event was covered in our ‘Masjid Al-Aqsa 1 Dirham Silver Coin 2017 by Nubex‘ article – the Israk and Mikraj event, in which the prophet Muhammad S.A.W. in one night traveled from Makkah to Al-Aqsa, before being taken up to heaven to meet and lead past prophets in prayer.
