Virtues of the first 10 days of Dhuʻl-Hijjah


The first ten days of Dhuʻl-Hijjah are almost upon us and we do not want to miss out on a single blessing. There are no days in the year more beloved to Allah than these days; just like the last ten nights of Ramadan, these ten days are crammed with opportunities for every Muslim to gain abundant reward.

So, the questions we should be asking ourselves are, “How do we make the most of this season of blessings?”, “What deeds can I perform to attain His pleasure?”. The following are some examples of the acts of worship that will help us gain His pleasure InshaAllah.

1) Do more zikr
2) Seek forgiveness  to get all sins/shortcomings to be wiped
3) Pray  night prayer Tahajjud  and morning Ishraq
4) Give extra charity for masjid as well as orphans and needy
5) Fast 9 days or at least day of Arafat
6) Give Qurbani
7) Recite Quran  with beautiful  recitation, understand meaning, contemplate
8) Perform Hajj and Umrah, if possible,
9) Forgive everyone
