Rajab means reverence and sacrifice, and 27 Rajab is the date on which Allah, glory unto him, sent Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (peace be upon him) from Makkah to Jerusalem and the seven skies and his great throne.
On the same day, Allah, the exalted, made his beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) visit him and gave him the honor of speaking. On this day,, Allah, the Exalted, had imposed five daily prayers on the Ummah.
On the occasion of 27th Rajab, the Muslim Ummah performs nawafils throughout the night and will spend the night in remembrance and worship.
