Rajab is the seventh month in the Islamic lunar calendar. This month was regarded as one of the sacred months (Al-Ashhur-al-hurum) in which battles were prohibited in the days of the Holy Prophet . It is also a prelude to the month of Ramadan, because Ramadan follows it after the intervening month of Sha'ban.

The Month of Rajab

It is also not known in which year the event of Mi'raj took place. The books of history suggest a wide range between the fifth-year and the twelfth year after the Holy Prophet was entrusted with prophethood.

Sometimes, this feeling even turns to fear and anxiety. "O Allah, will I see Ramadaan this year?" Allah alone knows who will live to see Ramadaan.

He will not take a second wife !

- if a man agrees to sign a contract before he gets married which states that he will not take a second wife, and in the event that he does he will pay his (current) wife RX and would allow his (current) wife the choice to end the marriage before he takes a second wife, would this contract hold up as being valid and enforceable under the laws of Sharia?

Would this marriage be permissible?
