Significance of 1st Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah


Many people don’t know that the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are better than all the other days of the year, the 10 best days with no exception. They are even better than the days of Ramadan, SubhanAllah!

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days” (Bukhari), meaning the (first) ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.

These beloved ten days provide yet another opportunity to reap enormous blessings, have our sins pardoned, and grow much in piety. Two extremely important occasions occur in a month of elevated spirituality, and they are both performed in adoration of Allah (SWT).  The Hajj and the auspicious holiday of Eid al-Adha.

As Prophet Ibrahim (AS) did on this day, each and every one of us offers Qurbani in adoration of Allah (SWT) and to support disadvantaged populations across the world who are in need.

Islamic Relief works all year long to assist families to maintain a healthy and stable standard of living and alleviate food poverty.

Every Eid al-Adha, Islamic Relief leads the charge in giving Qurbani meat to some of the neediest and most vulnerable people across the world, in several nations. Many people will only be able to consume meat this one time all year.

You may make the lives of people who are less fortunate than ourselves happier by giving your Qurbani, and you can also help disadvantaged communities throughout the world celebrate Eid without worrying about how and what they will eat for their families.

You will be assisting families and whole communities in celebrating Eid al-Adha by paying your Zakat and Sadaqah at this beautiful time.

It's common to hear people refer to the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah as the greatest ten of the year and a second opportunity after Ramadan. This is still a wonderful time of blessing and a huge reward for those of us who are not making the Hajj journey this year.

Those who are now on the holy journey of the Hajj are in our thoughts and prayers. There are still numerous ways for us to benefit from this month's benefits, even though many of us are unable to make the wonderful journey this year.

According to many scholars of the Qur’an, the days mentioned as significant enough for Allah to swear by them are the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah. It is Sunnah for the Muslims to fast on the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah because fasting is one of the best deeds. In a hadith Qudsi, Allah says: “All the deeds of the son of Adam are for him, except fasting, which is for Me and I shall reward for it.” (Bukhari, 1805)

 It is reported that “The Prophet used to fast on the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah and the day of Ashura, and three days each month, the first Monday of the month and two Thursdays.” (Abu Dawood, 2/462).

The ten days of Dhul-Hijjah include Yawm al-Arafah (the Day of Arafah), on which Allah perfected His Religion. The Prophet said: “Fasting the day of `Arafah expiates the sins of two years: the past one and the coming one.” (Muslim)
