If one fasts on this day in Rajab, Hellfire will go away from him a distance of one year on foot. If one fast for seven days of Rajab, the seven gates of the Fire will close in his face. If one fast for eight days of Rajab, the eight gates of Paradise will be wide open before him. If one fast for fifteen days, his request will be granted. If one fast for more days, he will gain more rewards from Almighty Allah.
