Righteous actions during the First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah

From the most virtuous of days are the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah (the 12th month in the lunar calendar, one of the sacred months and the month of Hajj). Some of the various types of righteous actions which are done in these first ten days are mentioned below: A group of those from the People of Knowledge say: “Verily they are the best days of the year just as the last ten nights of Ramadaan are the best nights of the year.” 

REMEMBRANCE OF ALLAAH

The first of the righteous actions is the remembrance of Allaah سبحانه وتعالى. Allaah سبحانه وتعالى said: {…and the men and the women who remember Allaah much with their hearts and tongues – Allaah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise).} [al-Ahzaab 33:35]

It is affirmed in a number of texts the encouragement of mentioning the takbeer. Allaah سبحانه وتعالى said: {…and mention the Name of Allaah on appointed days (i.e. 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th day of Dhul-Hijjah)} [al-Hajj 22:28]

It has been affirmed from the Sahaabah (Companions) of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and from him صلى الله عليه وسلم , that they increased in the takbeer (saying “Allaahu Akbar—Allaah is the Greatest) in the first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah and they raised their voice with it, each one of them saying the takbeer on his own. They raised their voices until the mountains shook from their takbeer but they did not say the takbeer in unison (in Jamaa’ah). Each of them said the takbeer on his own. Read the rest of this entry

Virtues of Dhul-Hijjah and Hajj

Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aala) has sworn by the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah in Surah Fajr when He said:

وَالْفَجْرِ

“ By the dawn;

وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ

 By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hîjjah)”

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (radiAllaahu anhu) that the Prophet (Salla-Allaahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days.” They said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah?” He said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allaah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.” [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 2/457] Read the rest of this entry
