The status of 'salatur raghaib' in Rajab

Question

Could our moulana please shed some light on the following: Laylat ar-raghaib, ‘the Sacred Night of Desires’.

It is one of the most important nights in Islamic history for all human beings. It is the night that the Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) was transferred from his father to his mother’s womb. It falls on the first Friday of Rajab. All that you wish for on this night, God gives you for the sake of His beloved Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam).

In Islamic countries they celebrate this night with praising of the Prophet (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam), remembrance of his life, remembrance of God in their hearts, salatur raghaib and visits to mosques, which stay open throughout the night until dawn. They do not sleep.

Unfortunately, in this country, no one knows especially Muslims that this most precious night is coming.
