Dhul-Hijjah

“There are No days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to God than these 10 days.” [Bukhaari]

“There are No days greater in the sight of God (including Ramadhaan) & in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Him than these 10 days, so during this time recite a great deal of Tahleel (“La ilaaha ill-Allaah”), Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar) and Tahmeed (Al Hamdu Lil-laah).” [Ahmad]

They say the days of Dhul Hijjah are like the nights of Ramadhaan! Both blessed.

A Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “When you see the new moon of Dhul-Hijjah, if any one of you wants to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and nails until he has offered his sacrifice.” [Muslim]

A Sunnah: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to fast on the first 9 days of Dhul-Hijjah and the day of ‘Ashoora’, and 3 days each month – the first Monday and 2 Thursdays of the month”. [Nasaa’i, Abu Dawood]

Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah. HeĀ (peace be upon him) said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” [Muslim]

“There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafaah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?'” [Muslim]

Takbeer of Tashreeq:

After each Fardh Salaah Recite from Fajr of 9th Dhul Hijjah (Mon 14 Oct) until Asr of 13th (Fri 18 Oct)

“Allaahu Akbar,
Allaahu Akbar,
Laa ilaaha il-lAllaahu,
WAllaahu Akbar
Allaahu Akbar,
Wa Lil-laahil-hamd

(Allaah is the Greatest,
Allaah is the Greatest,
there is no god but Allaah; Allaah is the Greatest
and to Allaah be all praise),”

Adjust your daily routines and Make the most of these precious days. These days are gifts for us, by us doing any of these acts will not benefit God. They are of benefit to us. We should take avail of such opportunities. May God accept this from us and grant us the ability to act on the above.
