    Title: Fasting and Offering Nafl on 27 Rajab

    Question: I am hearing mixed views about fasting and praying nafl on 27th of Rajab. Is it proven through hadith? Are there extra rewards to pray specifically on the night of Miraj? Is it recommended to observe fast on 27 Rajab and do extra nafl prayer in this night?

    (1) There is no special virtue recorded in the Hadith about keeping the fast of 27th of Rajab and offering nafl salah.

    (2) First of all, there is difference in the date of Mairaj Night and further there is no proof of special worship in this night from the time of holy Prophet (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), Sahabah and Salaf Salihin.
