Fasting during rajab, and all other nafl ibaadah is great, but to do these nafl acts on the 27th with Isra and Miraj in mind is Bidah.
Holy Prophet pbuh has observed in the following words: "Whoever invents something in our religion which is not a part of it, it is to be rejected." Being mindful of this serious warning, we should appreciate that the 27th night of the month of Rajab is not like 'Lailatul-qadr' or 'Lailatul-bara'ah' for which special merits have been mentioned expressly either y the Holy Qur'an or by the Holy Prophet Mohammad pbuh
However, all the recognized modes of 'ibadah (worship) like Salat, recitation of the Holy Qur'an, dhikr, etc. are commendable any time, especially in the late hours of night, and obviously the 27th night of Rajab is not an exception. Therefore, if someone performs any recognized 'ibadah in this night from this point of view nothing can stop him from doing so, and he will be entitled to the thawab (reward allocated for that recognized 'ibadah insha-Allah.) But it is not permissible to believe that performing 'ibadah in this night is more meritorious or carries more thawab like 'Lailatul-qadr' or 'Lailatul-bara'ah', because this belief is not based on any authentic verse or on a sunnah of the Holy Prophet Mohammad pbuh.
Similarly, it is not a correct practice to celebrate this night collectively and to invite people to special ritual congregations.
