Laylat al-Raghaib or Regaip Kandili is one of the five Kandil nights. Raghaib derived from the root "rega-be" meaning "to desire" or "to tend toward". Laylat al-Raghaib marks the beginning of the "Holy three months" (Rajab, Sha'ban and Ramazan) in Islamic calendar. As Islamic holidays begin the night before, Laylat al-Raghaib is celebrated on the Thursday night preceding the first Friday in the month of Rajab.
